ELM’s Women’s Spring Hiking Clinic begins May 5

Equilibrium Lifestyle Management (ELM) is heading to the trails again for their popular Women’s Spring Hiking series this May.

Starting Tuesday, May 5 this six-week hiking clinic will explore the Valley’s local parks, greenways and trails. The spring program includes weekly hikes for both novice and intermediate hikers looking to improve their hiking fitness, meet new hiking friends and discover new trails.

The novice program is designed for new hikers who would like to increase their endurance and hiking ability on the trails. No hiking experience is necessary to join the novice group. The intermediate program is geared for hikers with more experience under their boots. Participants in this group should be able to hike comfortably for 1.5-2 hours over varied terrain prior to beginning the clinic. Participants following this program may choose to train with multi-day packs to prepare for summer hiking adventures.

ELM hiking clinics are led by experienced female hikers and certified fitness instructors who are excited to share their favourite trails around the Comox Valley. During the clinic participants will learn about hiking safety, map reading and navigation, hydration, nutrition, trip preparation, hiking gear and more.
