Chebucto Hiking Club’s (CHC) introduces people to hiking trails and natural footpaths in and around the Halifax Regional Municipality. We are happy to once again welcome everyone on our hikes. Please respect any members who want to continue to practice social distancing or wear masks. Scheduled hikes are guaranteed to be full of exciting outdoor experiences.
If you can’t make our weekend hikes, our Tuesday morning 10 km walk, may appeal to retirees and shift workers. The start time is 10 am, and there are four start locations in the greater Bedford area, and these are done on a rotational basis. A weekly email will be sent out stating the start location for the following Tuesday.
You can also join CHC at 10 am every Thursday morning in the parking lot of Graham’s Grove Park on Prince Albert Road (across from the Braemar Superstore) for a 10 km walk around Dartmouth or in the trails in Shubie Park.
All of our events are 10 km in length or longer. Guided walks have a designated walk leader and ender (or sweep) who are familiar with the trail, terrain, and the physical demands. The pace, which is dependent on the terrain, is generally 4-5 km/hour, with a typical 10 km walk taking 2 hours. When conditions are good, the winter walks are often with our snow shoes! You can read more about our walk ratings here.
Hikes are rarely cancelled, however, if you have any doubt please contact the hike leader listed on the schedule to confirm. All walks depart on time, so please arrive 15 minutes early. Pets are welcome but should remain leashed at all times. Please feel free to call the walk leader with any questions.
Have fun & stay healthy!
