PLEASE NOTE: During COVID-19 the Trail & Nature Club is NOT encouraging carpooling outside a person’s ‘bubble’.

*** COVID-19 SELF-ASSESSMENT ***

Before participating in any scheduled events, members should answer these questions:

  1. Have you experienced cold or flu-like symptoms within the last 14 days?
  2. Have you been in close contact with anyone who has had cold or flu-like symptoms, or tested positive for Covid-19?
  3. Have you travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days?

If the answer is YES to any of the above questions, please stay home.

PLEASE NOTE: Participants need to bring a lunch and wear appropriate footwear and outdoor clothing. Participants should also carry a card in their backpack with pertinent medical information, and an Emergency Contact named with contact details.


We encourage every hiker to lead one hike a year, which still leaves enough for those who wish to lead more.
