Start a Winter Hiking Log

Stay in shape and enjoy one of the best hiking seasons!  We have a schedule full of winter wonderland hikes to meet the needs of every skill level of hiker.  Check it out at


It usually takes a couple of hikes to figure out the layers to suit the outdoor temperature but with the right stuff, winter can be enjoyable.  Consider using hiking poles, gaiters and icers .  They will make you feel invincible from the cold and ice.


The WINTER BADGE is earned by hiking during the winter season (December 21, 2017 – March 20, 2018)


Hike just 20 hikes throughout the winter.  Hikes must be a minimum of 1 ½ hrs long.  They may be completed during a club hike or on your own but they must be conducted in the Niagara Peninsula.  So, head to the Bruce Trail or head right out your door and walk around your neighbourhood.  You won’t have to “get into shape” in the spring because you will already be in great shape while earning this coveted badge.
