Guided Hikes

Get out for some fresh air and meet new people!

Friends regularly organises guided hikes year-round, through different areas of Blue Mountain - Birch Cove Lakes. We invite Members to join us ​on these excursions to discover the natural beauty of this wilderness area, get some fresh air and physical activity, and meet new people.

Hikes will vary in duration, difficulty level, and location, and some may even have themes (identifying flora and fauna; birding; learning about stewardship; discovering the history of the area; etc.). All hikes will be guided by experienced hike leaders and will be limited in number, so register early!
