Calgary Hiking Groups
CALGARY OUTDOOR RECREATION ENTHUSIASTS (CORE)
The Calgary Outdoor Recreational Enthusiasts was founded by a small group of people that just liked to get out and hike. They appeal to adults, and besides hiking, members enjoy skiing, snow shoeing, cycling, camping, picnicking, and canoeing. Trip planning is an ongoing process.
CALGARY FIELD NATURALISTS’ SOCIETY
The Calgary Field Naturalists' Society (CFNS) is a not-for-profit, non-political, natural history club serving over 500 members. The Society's mission is to encourage the appreciation, observation, study, conservation, and protection of all components of the natural world. The Calgary Field Naturalists' Society seeks to fulfill its mission through monthly meetings, field trips, and publications that help to educate members and the public.
CALGARY SKI CLUB
With a history dating back to 1920 the Calgary Ski Club is one of the most reputable outdoor recreation clubs in western Canada. This non-profit organization relies exclusively on its member volunteers to plan its own year-round program of activities. In winter a wide range of outings, clinics, lessons, and races are organized for skiers and boarders of all types, ages, and skill levels. Summertime focuses on hiking and backpacking, along with in-line skating, softball, tennis, golf and cycling trips.
CALGARY WEEKEND HIKERS CLUB
In 1980 a small handful of hikers wanted to form a hiking club that would provide variety and a casual atmosphere. Today the Calgary Weekend Hikers are a 300+ member organization that retains those traditions. Depending on participant skill levels and preferences outings may include easy day hikes, scrambling, or backpacking trips. Hosteling and car camping are also frequent activities of this volunteer-run organization. The Calgary Weekend Hikers winds up each hiking season with its annual potluck supper.
ROCKY MOUNTAIN RAMBLERS
The Rocky Mountain Ramblers is a Calgary-based club dedicated to the pursuit of ambitious outdoor adventures. The club coordinates over 200 trips per year, including trail hiking, scrambling, backpacking, car camping, bicycling, cross-country skiing, ski mountaineering, and downhill skiing. Many of the Rocky Mountain Ramblers' day trips visit Kananaskis Country and Banff National Park. Multi-day trips may involve backpacking, car camping or stays at hostels and huts. The Rocky Mountain Ramblers meet weekly, and membership in this active club is available at a reasonable annual charge.
Outings arranged for seniors: hiking in summer, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter. Based at Confederation Park Senior Citizens Centre, 10th Street N.W. Calgary.
