Hike with us!
There are two ways to join us on the trails. Club Fit Frog offers organized urban hikes (1.5 hr. urban walks), mini-wilderness treks (3 hr. outings), full day wilderness hikes and multi-day trekking and snowshoe tours. Or you can ask us to organize a custom hike you, your friends, colleagues or family! Learn more about the Lori, the hike organizer.
On the FAMILY* FUN Hikes, Snowshoe & Crazy Carpet outings, the group may split up so some can pace slower or play more (okay, mostly the kids and their adult) while others pace further on trail or in the powder. Their will be lots of opportunities to learn about navigation and route finding. No matter what your age, you’ll have the option of sliding or pouncing on snowshoes (or walking on the hikes) your way back down the trail!

Club Fit Frog
Club Fit Frog offers group urban walking and wilderness hiking trips. Each season, a schedule of hikes (snowshoe and ski outings) are offered by Club Fit Frog. We are a very small club that offers personal service pre-trip and on the trail. Group sizes are small and club membership fees are seasonal and are for the organization of hikes, snowshoe & ski outings (registration, carpool planning, and route research), for overhead costs (office, website, certifications). Club Fit Frog hikes are volunteer lead by Lori Beattie, owner of Fit Frog Adventures. Seasonal, monthly or a la carte hike passes allow club members to access urban and wilderness hikes and snowshoe outings in a session of hikes. Members also have access to FAMILY FUN OUTINGS. There are 8 designated family and friends hikes in the WINTER 2013 calendar (December 30-March 19)
Urban hikes travel through Calgary’s funky shopping districts, architecturally-interesting neighbourhoods, parks, along pathways and into tasty cafés. It’s the vast range of treasures in a small, easily navigated space that makes exploring the city on foot so enjoyable. And for those of you who want to explore the nearby natural areas or the Rocky Mountain wilderness, we offer a wide variety of mini and full day wilderness hikes and snowshoe outings and multi-day hikes.
