Various walks and events will be held throughout the year to have some fun and encourage everyone to keep walking.
We will be meeting for hikes on many of the Denman Trails to help familiarize people with the large number of trails we have on the Island. This will help you feel comfortable using them on your own.
What events are planned for us to join in?
Here’s the latest from Dr. Ron about January 24th’s trek through the wilds of Denman:
“Under sunny skies once again our monthly walk headed for the Northlands. Lead by Graeme Johnston we headed up the Wren road trail for a pleasant walk on a well marked trail that took us on a loop around only a small portion of the Northlands. Indeed there will be much area to explore over the next several months. We were a small but enthusiastic group who could have covered more ground, but we settled for a 45 min. walk covering about 3 Km. For those with smart phones a useful App for keeping track of their walks is something called Mapmywalk. It tracks where you are going so that if you get lost you can retrace your steps. I think you probably need a Data plan for this. The App will show you where you are, how far you have gone and how fast you are moving. Its fun if you like that kind of thing but definitely not necessary. An exciting development from the Parks committee is a booklet of trail maps being put together by Peter Karsten. We hope this will be ready for sometime in March. It will detail several trails on Denman.
