About the Take a Hike Program:
The hiking program is designed to introduce participants to the activity of hiking, or expand their interest and passion in the activity by exposing them to new trails and a community of other passionate individuals.
The hiking program starts out with some easier local hikes to get everyone acquainted with group dynamics and some of the local flora and fauna. As the program progresses the hikes will become longer and more engaging as we travel a little further away from town to access some of the amazing hikes available in the local region. While hiking there will be discussion based around connection to nature and as identifying local flora and fauna and some of their historical uses.
Participants will also learn some basic navigation and map reading skills so they can route find and understand how to safely navigate the trails in a variety of circumstances. Being able to safely travel through the local terrain with a “leave no trace” principle and understanding the impacts of our presence in the environment is an important component of the program as well.
In an effort to make the sport even more accessible Elevation Outdoors provides transportation from 3 common meeting points in Kelowna and West Kelowna to make it easier for participants to join us.
