Hike with Jim Hoare


The Guelph Hiking Trail Club builds and maintains trails from Cambridge to Limehouse, and from Guelph to West Montrose.


We are a volunteer organization begun in 1970 and incorporated in 1974. We organize hikes, publish newsletters, and produce a Handbook of maps of our trails. We welcome visitors on our hikes and on our trails.


We hope to meet you on the trails!
