Outings in the Kingston club are generally organized for Saturdays and/or Sundays. On some weekends, multiple activities take place. These events are announced here, in the RTA’s quarterly print newsletter and monthly member e-mail. Outings are held at a defined location on the trail or at some of the many scenic places around the Kingston area.
