The Guelph Hiking Trail Club (GHTC) is a non-profit, charitable organization administered by a board of directors, elected each year at the annual general meeting. We are a volunteer organization that began in 1970 and was incorporated in 1974.

  • To stimulate an interest in hiking.
  • To establish and maintain trails for hiking.
  • To encourage awareness of the natural environment.
  • To promote the conservation of the environment.

We organize hikes of varying length throughout the year, have some cross-country skiing outings in winter months and some biking events in the spring and fall. Members keep in touch through a regular newsletter, email updates, and fall/winter slide show presentations. Club business is carried out at monthly Executive Committee meetings and at an Annual General Meeting in November. The Guelph Hiking Trail Club would welcome you as a member.

Thanks to a Community Benefit grant from the City of Guelph GHTC contracted Bloom Media to work with us to create a video about GHTC.
