Parking will be free on Canada Day and there will be plenty of activities for you & your family to enjoy.  See link for map to the estate and Canada Day events:
You must register for the trip with Kathryn Kyle gohikingottawaacc@gmail.com and trip waivers must be signed prior to beginning the hike.

A weekend of hiking in the Adirondacks. The trip will be based at Keene Farm beginning Friday night with people gathering on Saturday & Sunday mornings for hikes. Several individual routes are planned each day with difficulty levels ranging from 3 to 5 depending on the interests of the group and leaders. While some hikes will be to 46ers others will be to lesser known peaks in the region with much shorter approaches.

Please indicate the level of hike you are interested. Also indicate if you would like to camp or stay in the hut at Keene Farm or if you wish to arrange your own lodgings elsewhere and join the group on the day.

For Experienced, New  & Potential Leaders; For Members Who Would Like to Know More About Leading Trips
The Ottawa Section wants to build its base of trip leaders and invites all members who now lead trips, members who are starting to lead trips and members who are considering leading or co-leading trips to attend our Trip Leader Workshop. During the workshop, we will be discussing what it takes to lead trips, how to go about organizing a trip, risk management and the guidelines that the club has developed to help leaders run fun, challenging and safe outings.
Mark Orzel, an outdoor educator and trip guide, will be helping us throughout the workshop.
We are bringing together experienced, new and potential trip leaders to share their thoughts on leading trips.
There is no obligation on those who attend to start leading trips unless they feel ready to do so.

When: Wednesday April 29 – 5:30pm to 9:00pm; Pizza @ 5:30pm & Workshop @ 6:00pm

Where: Library, St. Pius X High School, 1481 Fisher Ave (There will be signs directing you to the Library.)
