Midland

Midland Hikers usually meet at Mountainview Parking Lot, close to County Road 93, Midland, across the Food Basics Store.  During this period, weekday hikes will be Wednesday at 1 pm. For these weekday hikes or snowshoe outings, we do not list destinations, as they are decided at random. These hikes are easy to moderate and usually 2 hours long.

Weekend meeting times vary, depending on destination. It is always recommended to contact the hike leader for details or changes before the hike, especially alternate detail. Our weekly emails will also notify you of our activities.

Pre-Registration may still apply for some hikes. Only fully vaccinated hikers are invited. Social distancing and mask-wearing (when not within 2 m separation or for carpooling) are still required.

Recreational Biking and Canoe/Kayak outings will start again in the spring depending on weather conditions.
