Calgary Weekend Hikers - About Us
About the Calgary Weekend Hikers Club
The Calgary Weekend Hikers (CWH) was started in 1980 by Elaine Watson, Rosemarie Kramp and Elsie James, a group of friends that wanted to explore the beauty of the Rocky Mountains. Our club members have a passion for hiking and a respect for the mountain environment. We are a volunteer group that appreciates everyone lending a hand and the wonderful friendships that evolve when sharing the trail together for a day.
The club offers over 200 hikes from April 1st to October 31st each year. The trips are designed for all fitness levels which include leisurely city walks to robust mountain scrambles and many moderate hikes in between. We also occasionally offer weekend trips to mountain hostels or backcountry camping. The current club has over 350 active members with most over 30 years of age. All members are required to hike a minimum of four (4) hikes per season to retain their membership in the club.
If you wish to join our club, send an email to Membership with your name, address, email address and contact phone number. Your name will be added to a waiting list that is reviewed at the beginning of each hiking season for possible openings. If you are accepted into the club you will be required to sign a waiver and pay annual membership dues.
