Enjoy a two hour, moderately-paced hike on the trails at Lemoine Point Conservation Area. Members meet at 8:50 AM at Rotary Park on Coverdale Drive. Winter trail conditions in this area often necessitate the use of poles and crampons. Some mornings may be suitable for snowshoeing.
Ron's Rock and Roll Wednesdays
Gould Lake Conservation Area is the setting for these energetic Wednesday morning outings. Though a few of the trails are gentle, many are rocky and steep so sturdy boots, icers and poles are strongly recommended. If snow conditions permit, snowshoeing and skiing options may be added. Your GLCA entry fee is pre-paid thanks to the RTA Kingston Club and CRCA. Members are asked to check the TeamUp calendar Tuesday evenings to confirm the starting place and time, and to check for additional instructions.
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.

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