Retired now, I get into the outdoors most days to hike, paddle, camp, snowshoe, or explore. Some of my activities involve more difficult routes, but most are suitable for moderately fit people too. Since I am out several times a week, I post one (or two) event(s) each week and I invite a small group of like-minded people to join me. Kamloops Trails

    I am passing this event to the larger group of hike leaders while I take a medical leave. I am also removing my future draft events at this time, but I hope to get back out once the upcoming process is completed. Best of luck to our regular hiking members.
