You can now renew for the 2017-18 season.  It is a great time to renew as you will have 12 glorious months of adventure.  Here’s the info posted from the memberships page, including links to the latest membership form and waivers.

How do I Join?

The Ramblers welcome  non-members to participate in one or two club hikes to try it out, but then require that you purchase a membership.   Anyone interested in a membership can simply show up to one of the scheduled Sunday hikes, fill out the membership form and pay the fee (cheque or exact cash payment only please). A membership can also be purchased by completing the membership form and waiver form.  If minors will be participating in any hikes, then a minors’ waiver form must be completed as well. After completing it you can then print both out, sign the waiver, and then send them along with fee payment to the Club address.

(New Posts are below this post)

Newly updated guides are now available!

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
Tourism PG UNBC Bookstore
McBride Tourism Info Centre Valemount Tourism Info Centre
CNC Bookstore
