Take a Hike …with the kids!

There is no Wi-Fi in the forest, but you will find a better connection

Join us for a free guided family hike at Ellenwood Provincial Park on October 7th, 2017.

Family friendly hiking, games & activities, trail snacks and give-aways!

Ellenwood Park, October 7th, 1-3pm


Meet at the last parking lot near the public beach at 1pm (check in at the registration hut if you need directions). The trail is approximately 2 km and we will be hiking “family-friendly style”! (Lots of stopping with activities along the way).

Dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear. The trail is sometimes wet in spots so bring extra socks and shoes if you wish. Layered clothing is a good choice for our ever-changing weather.

Let us know you’re coming. 🙂
