(New Posts are below this post)


Are you looking for the most current information about our local trails?   Then look no further then the Caledonia Ramblers Trail Guide!  It is the most current trail guide for the trails around Prince George, and we update it regularly.  We know what the current access of the trails is like, and other important information as we hike up the trails frequently.   And the best part is if you buy one of our trail guides (or both), you are supporting maintenance of our trails.  Our club spends a good deal of the Summer working on the trails so that they are easily accessible to all hikers, club members or not.  You might even be lucky to spot some of our members cleaning a trail that you are hiking on.  Without the help of the volunteer trail workers, there would be no trail!

If you are interested in all the hiking opportunities in and around Prince George, then you must pick up a copy of these two trail guides. They contain complete descriptions of over 50 trails, along with directions and trail ratings.

These guides are available from:

Books & Company Spruceland News
Tourism PG UNBC Bookstore
McBride Tourism Info Centre Valemount Tourism Info Centre
The Wild Life CNC Bookstore
Valemont Museum and Archives

Weekend Skiing/Snowshoeing Trip – April 11-12 at the Farm

Caledonia Rambler Chris Thornhill is interested to find out if four other Ramblers would like to join him and a friend for a skiing/snowshoeing weekend (April 11-12) at The Farm, near the Upper Torpy Valley, northeast of Prince George. Chris and his friend are planning to spend the night at The Farm cabin, which holds six people. Chris was at The Farm on Good Friday and there was 10 inches of new snow, so conditions there will still be good for either skiing or snowshoeing. The cost to rent the cabin for a night is $50 (ie $10 for five people). Anyone who would like to join Chris and his friend should contact Chris at (250) 963-7497 or by e-mail at christhornhill.60@gmail.com. The plan is for people to meet at Chris’ place near Shelley on Saturday (April 11) at 8 a.m. for the trip to The Farm.
