Wednesday Walkers

An active group of hikers, the Wednesday Walkers meet weekly at 1:30 PM for some healthy, social exercise at an easy pace. Their walking locations in and around Kingston change weekly.

Fast & Far Thursday Hikes

This group walks at a vigorous 4-6 km/hr pace for two hours. During the winter months, snowshoeing and skiing are popular. Members meet at 8:50 AM at Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area during the cooler months and at Lemoine Point Conservation Area during the summer. Your Little Cat entry fee is pre-paid thanks to the RTA Kingston Club and the CRCA.

Weekend Outings

The Kingston Club offers full-day weekend hikes in the Kingston area and further afield. Our leaders schedule hikes of varying length and difficulty along the Rideau Trail between Kingston and Ottawa, on adjacent side trails and in provincial parks and conservation areas. They also occasionally offer seasonal outings including cycling, swimming, skiing, skating and snowshoeing.

Meeting Locations

Meeting locations and times vary for weekend hikes. This information will be provided to members well in advance of each outing.

Outing Preparation

It is important to monitor the RTA response to COVID-19 and to arrive properly prepared for the outing. Please contact the leader beforehand if you have any questions. Descriptions of the levels of difficulty are available on our Discover the Trail page under “Preparation and Trail Behaviour.”
