  • KHC is a member of Kamloops Sports Council.   Here is their June newsletter.
  • KHC is a member of the Federation of Mountain Clubs.   Cloudburst magazine is published twice a year.  Here is the Summer 2017 Cloudburst.
  • Members are reminded that crossing CN tracks at Mount Mara or Cooney Bay can result in a fine.   There are alternate access routes for both.   Tranquille – Mara access
  • Mosquito season has hit at mid-elevations now and it will not be long before higher elevations also be “buggy.”   Hikers may want to carry the repellent of their choice on KHC hikes for the next 6 weeks.   Windy open ridges are a good choice in bug season.
  • Congratulations to Jeremy Markel who has taken on the role of Vice President with FMCBC.

KHC – Q and A #3

How does Requires Leader Registration work?

As noted earlier, a few events are listed this way to ensure the group can stick together on either difficult and long routes or on multi-day backpacks or camps.   Members need to contact the Hike Leader to enquire about registration/participation and this may mean having some communications back and forth to make sure the event is the right one right for you and for the group.   Most KHC events do not require this step.

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
