This group takes walks in city parks and forests, typically every Thursday morning for 2-3 hours.
We plan on a maximum of 8 hikers and maintain the appropriate social distance between each hiker.
New members who wish to hike at a comfortable pace and on a regular basis, are encouraged to join. Currently, car pooling is not recommended, unless privately arranged.
To join this group, please contact the convener – Lynda Erickson.
Our group met every Thursday morning and they followed a route planned by the leader. They each brought a light lunch with a drink, and they were usually home by 2:00 PM. I asked the hikers which hike they had especially enjoyed. One member said she had enjoyed standing under the Great Blue Heron nests in Stanley Park and watched the parent birds feed their baby herons. Several hikers mentioned Kloochman Park as unusual. It is approached through a Lighthouse Park neighbourhood, and begins with a very long staircase down to a trail, which then drops several levels as it continues toward a bluff, where we could sit overlooking a small bay.
