Welcome to Victoria Club Tread!

Effective July 1st 2021, we will be opening up the club to new members. We have also made a change in the number of events required, before becoming a paid member. Under the current policy guests could participate in 3 events before paying their membership. That has been revised to guests can sign up for up to 3 events before they are required to pay their membership. If after 1 event they feel they want to pay their membership fees, they can; this allows them to participate in Paid-up Members only events. There will be some who may not be ready to make that commitment, and to them we will extend the grace period to 3 events. The executive will review these changes at the end of September. 

The maximum number of participants has been changed from 10 to the discretion of the event leader.


Club Tread has been  on the hiking scene on Vancouver Island for over 30 years and is likely the most active club on the Island.  Prospective members may try three hikes with the Club before being required to join and pay the annual dues.


Our day-hiking and walking events on the south Island run year round. In the winter months we also have ski trips to Mt. Washington, and cross-country skiing closer to Victoria as weather permits. From April to October you can expect hiking, and cycling events in the Cowichan Valley, the Gulf Islands and the San Juans along with weekend and multi-day trips further afield. The Olympic Peninsula is a popular destination along with Mt Baker and Mount Rainier, with back-packing, car-camping and lodge rental. Longer trips have seen Club Treaders as far away as the Rocky Mountains, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, the Grand Canyon and many other National Parks in Canada and the US. We don't limit ourselves to North America either; the Club has held hiking trips in Britain, Italy, Spain and France. 

Club Tread uses 2 websites:

1. clubtread.org (this website)

On this site we handle online  new membership processing and renewals.  It will also give access to the necessary documents and information we need as a non-profit society.

2. Victoria Club Tread Meetup (part of the Meetup.com system)

This interactive website is used by our club to schedule our events, post photos, contact members, etc.
