Enjoy Fort McMurray! - Hiking Group

to

Unlike other hiking groups, no one is left behind and safety is the number one priority.  Get introduced to hiking by continuing our leisurely walks on Wednesday's.  The type of people who would benefit most from this group are outdoor people who love to hike, bike, swim, camp, etc...There could be times you could learn some basic outdoor skills like tracking, using a GPS, etc... Once you've learned that, maybe we could have another scavenger hunt?   If you have any suggestions, send them our way, we love new idea's. Reasons to join?  Great way to meet people in your community and have some fun at the same time.
