What you'll do
We will meet in the parking lot of Shouldice Arena in Calgary for brief introductions and drive out to out trailhead for the hike (~1 to 1.5 hours drive). Although you can reach Shouldice Arena by Uber/Taxi, you will need a vehicle to reach the trailhead. I will, however, be able take 3-4 guests with me if you don't have a vehicle. Please message me before you book to check availability (first come first serve). While most tourists stick to the busy National Parks, we will hike where the locals go. Don't expect to see big tour buses or a throng of selfie sticks (you're welcome to bring them though)! The trail will range from between 4 - 10 km with an approximate elevation gain of 200 - 600 meters. More challenging options available if the group is willing. After we reach our hiking destination, we will enjoy a nice break where I will provide some snacks (chips, cookies, soft-drinks). There will be plenty of opportunities for photos along the way as well. After our break, we will hike back to our cars and drive back to Calgary. You are welcome to drive to your next destination after the hike rather than Calgary if you wish. Please bring a packed lunch to enjoy during the hike and some snacks for yourself. There is a Tim Hortons besides Shuouldice Arena if you want to grab some coffee/donuts/sandwiches.
Chips and cookies. Please let me know if you have any dietary restrictions.
Coke or Pepsi. Please let me know if you would like a 'diet' option.
I have lived in Calgary for 10 years and I love hiking. I own a local hiking group with approximately 3000 members and I have organized over 150 hiking trips. I have climbed over 100 mountain peaks in the Canadian Rockies and know the area very well, along with best practices to be safe in bear-country and preserving the natural beauty of the landscape. I would love to take you hiking at my favourite local spots.
