Hiking Group

The hiking group is active though out the year and has a contact list of approx. 30 club members. Hikes are arranged twice a month, weather permitting, and are usually 10-15 km in length, ranging in difficulty from easy to moderate with the odd difficult trek thrown in. The hikes can take place from as far south as Nanaimo to the other side of Campbell River although most are in the Comox Valley.

Once you are on the contact list a notice of an upcoming hike will be distributed a few days prior to the outing asking for a response from those who plan to attend. We usually get approximately 10 hikers out each time although we did get 19 once this past year to as few as 2.
Driving instructions, weather updates, meeting times etc will be sent the day prior to the hike. We always pack a lunch and take plenty of drinking water.
If this is an activity that interests you we welcome you to join the group.

We hope to see you on the trail enjoying the wondrous outdoors of British Columbia.


Walking Group

​The Walking Group meets every Monday.

​Objective: stay active.

​During the winter, we primarily walk the Courtenay Airpark. Like birds? Like sea views? Like changing colors? Always there. Great views, great walks. During milder weather, we change venues and take suggestions: Lazo Wetlands, the Royston Seawalk, and Seal Bay Park are among our walks.

​Get active. Get out. Join the Walking Group.
