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 Valemont Museum and Archives

 Birchleg Ski Tour Route Snowshoe Important update

This Sunday’s (Jan. 22nd’s) Birchleg event at Tabor Mountain, organized by the Hickory Wing Ski Touring Club, has had to be cancelled due to unsafe ski conditions. However, event organizers say the trails should still be safe for snowshoers and the Caledonia Ramblers, at present, still plan to go snowshoeing on Sunday.

For Ramblers who planned to go skiing at the Birchleg on Sunday, that will no longer be possible. But for club members who wanted to go snowshoeing, a trip to Tabor is still tentatively planned. The departure time from the Prince George City Hall parking lot will remain at 9:30 a.m. and the carpool fee is still tentatively $3. A reconnaissance hike will be conducted Saturday to determine a good snowshoe route.

For those who plan to go snowshoeing, conditions should be safe, but expect icy, crusty snow conditions. Members may want to bring ice-cleats with them, but snowshoes should be fine. Another special Weekly Ramblings will be sent out to members, updating them about Sunday’s trip, early Saturday evening.

For more information, please call Tim at 250-301-8247.

Moose Viewing Area to the Willow River Viewpoint

The Caledonia Ramblers will be leading an Easy (B1c) snowshoe from the Moose Viewing Area, approximately 30 km east of Prince George, to the Willow River Viewpoint, on Saturday, Jan. 7th. Although Environment Canada’s long-range forecast for Saturday calls for a high of -12 C, participants should bring lots of warm clothing, plus adequate food and a hot drink. Saturday night’s forecast calls for the temperature to dip to a low of -29 C, with periods of snow. This snowshoe’s distance and duration may be shortened or altered due to deteriorating weather conditions or time constraints. Please meet 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time of 9 a.m. in the parking lot behind Prince George City Hall. The carpool fee is $3.

For more information, please call Richard at 778-983-2171.
