Blueridge Hiking Group – All Welcome  – Renata Martinz (Blueridge resident for 44 years) has founded a women’s hiking group that meets every Tuesday for day hikes. We either use the local trail system or venture up to the local mountain peaks (in winter with snowshoes). The hikes are usually 3 to 4 hours and in summer longer as we also travel to the Squamish corridor and beyond. Men are also welcome, however we have had no luck in acquiring any enthusiasts. Average fitness level is required as are hiking boots, backsacks, suitable clothing etc. Check out Renata’s website, detailing all other information. There is no cost attached to this activity, other than transportation. Hikers meet at a central, convenient meeting place and carpool from there.
