Forwarded on behalf of the Prairie Pathfinders Walking Club <prairiepathfinders(a)shaw.ca>
We are hosting an information evening on MANITOBA HIKING ADVENTURES & WALKING TOURS on June 3, 2010 at the Fort Public Garry Library, 1360 Pembina Hwy from 6:00-8:00pm.
We have dozens of day hikes coming up including a full slate of 'bus supported' tours called 'BUS OFF & TAKE A HIKE'.
This is a chance for interested walkers/hikers to meet us and have their questions about our new 'Bus Off & Take a Hike' tours answered in person.
FYI - A club membership is NOT required for participation in these special events, so you could pass that along to friends and family who might like to join us.
5 Day Manitoba All-Inclusive
Another is a dawn to dusk exploration of the scenic secret treasures of the Pembina Valley (June 27th). The Long Day Tour
And one of the most fascinating tours is called 'Hike into History' (July 24th) which includes a tour of that fabulous Brandon landmark - 'The Mental'. Hike Into History
The August Whiteshell Workout is for those of you who want to tackle the more challenging hikes. If weather and trail conditions allow we will take on the Hunt Lake Trail, the north end of the Mantario Trail and the wonderful Centennnial Trail. Rooms at the Pinewood Lodge will be held until July 19th. Whiteshell Workout
Fall hiking in Riding Mountain National Park has become a much anticipated annual event. We haven't decided which trails we will hike. We feel they are all worth seeing once a year. We are hoping though, to find a route that will give us a new day hike into the SE corner of the park and the rugged gorges of the McFayden Valley. Riding Mtn Festival Rooms held at Clear Lake Lodge until Sept. 5th
Please feel free to phone or email with any questions.
Hope to see you out on the trails this summer,

Together, the approximately two-hour bike ride will be a great chance to enjoy the outdoors and get to the festival without driving numerous vehicles.
Participants will meet at Elmwood High School, and a safe-ride van will accompany the riders, and help transport their camping gear to Bird's Hill Park.
