For casual hikers, this Level 0.5 walk is a great way to stretch your legs for 1 - 1½ hours each week. Our Thursday-evening get-togethers provide a friendly way to meet Club members in an informal setting. Our destination may include the Arboretum or Hogs Back Falls or other Ottawa landmark—the destination varies with whimsy and the weather—but we always wind up at a pub or eatery by the end of the evening for a late dinner and some friendly conversation (COVID-19 restriction).

This event runs regularly every Thursday evening from April to October and on occasional Thursdays during the the rest of the year, starting from the designated departure point (see below). Meet us at the departure point a little after 6:00 PM for a 6:15 PM departure.

Our Thursday walks are in various downtownish locations; check the schedule each week for details.

We recommend that you dress for the weather, especially during the spring when evening temperatures can be highly variable. This includes using footwear suitable for muddy and / or partially snow-covered pathways.

There is no non-member's fee for these walks; everyone is invited to join us at no cost.

For all events, please check the event listings for details, as the meeting day, time, and location can vary.
