This long-established Victoria outdoor club has sustained a successful presence on the hiking scene on Vancouver Island for over 25 years. Find out now whether you like our club by trying out your first three hiking events FREE!
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.
Event organizers are encouraged to mentor other members and expand our slate of hikers willing to offer their expertise as leaders. This website has a wealth of information for interested members, with guidelines for leading all kinds of events. Our insurance coverage necessitates the signing of a Club Tread waiver by all participants on every event.
We are a non-profit society with a 7 member executive. The executive meets 4 times a year and the members are offered a social - business meeting 4 times a year also. We have full financial recording and reporting as per the Society Act and our minutes are available to all members.
