Hiking Group 

This group is for members who want a rigorous hike, with varying degrees of difficulty, lasting 2-3 hours.  In addition to a regular hike we may also schedule an alternate, longer more rigorous hike.  Members should be reasonably fit, wear hiking shoes or boots, bring water and a snack.  Many bring hiking poles on the more hilly hikes. After the hike, coffee is our reward!  The hiking group meets Fridays at 8:50 am. at the Fowler Road parking lot.

The group relies upon members to suggest and lead hikes. When proposing a Hike, please refer to the schedule and provide the date & destination.  When submitting your specific hike details for group circulation, kindly aim to have these e-mailed to me latest by the Wednesday afternoon before hike day.

When considering to lead a hike, you may find that our list of hikes will be of use. The data has been compiled by Mick Phillips and, while not exhaustive, provides a comprehensive list of locations tackled over the years by the CB55+ Group.  We’re indebted to Mick for pulling this together for us.  A number of these will be quite familiar to most of the Group however, for those members less so, a quick “google” will provide you with more detail.  That said, if anyone has other fresh ideas on where we could hike, please do feel free to bring them forward. As with new leaders, new destinations will always be welcomed.

December 29




Our traditional CB55+ Christmas Hill Hike will be on December 22nd.  We will follow it with a chilli lunch back at the school.  To keep it simple I am asking ahead for members to bring chilli (preferably in a crock pot) bread or baking ( finger food for dessert ).

Please email duanabob@gmail.com your choice. Thanks to those who already signed up after last Fridays hike.  I will confirm amounts as we get them.

Details to follow about hot chilli drop off before the hike.
