Nymph Falls is one of the popular hiking trails in the Comox Valley.

Hiking workshops start next week

Are you wanting to explore some of the many beautiful trails and parks in the Comox Valley? ELM is heading to the trails again for their popular Spring Hiking series this May.  Starting Tuesday, May 17 this hiking clinic will explore the Valley’s local parks, greenways and trails.

The spring program includes four weekly, evening group hiking/walking sessions and one weekend, finale half-day hike.

This is the ideal program for 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 – two 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 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. Go to elmhealth.com for more information.
