Art of Hiking Clinic

The Pillars of ORC Safe Hiking

Ever wondered about what makes for an enjoyable and safe group outing – whether it be hiking, snowshoeing, skiing or other outdoor group activities? This is where the Art of Hiking clinic comes in.

Your hiking club is dedicated to creating a safe environment for its outdoor activities. Evaluations from previous Art of Hiking participants reveal that new as well as long-time members find it a good learning experience while at the same time taking part in an enjoyable outing. As a seasoned leader commented after participating in a previous Art of Hiking clinic – I learned a lot and will implement things I learned today when I lead future outings.

The Art of Hiking Clinic includes a moderate 10 km hike during which participants discuss a variety of scenarios contributing to a safe, enjoyable outing for all.

This is a good opportunity for new (or not so new) members to learn some basic skills to consider when hiking with groups. Prior to the clinic registered participants will receive a copy of a brief Handbook to review prior to the clinic.

WHEN: April 29, 2023 with the rain date being April 30th

WHERE: From P5 head up #1 to the Skyline Trail, with a lunch break on the slopes of Fortune Ski Hill

WHAT TO BRING: Water, snacks, lunch & layers of clothing suitable to the weather since we will be stopping periodically to explore how to manage different scenarios.

Meet at the Supreme Court, east side parking at 8:50am for a 9:00am departure.
