    The Ottawa Rambling Club provides outdoor recreational activities throughout the year, including hiking, snow shoeing and cross-country skiing. The Club has a regular weekend outings program in Gatineau Park and organizes several out of town trips each year. Our activities are described in general terms below but our Events Calendar provides more specific descriptions of individual outings.

    Our hiking trips can vary from less than 10km to over 20km and may range in difficulty from marked trails over easy terrain to routes with significant elevation gain and rugged bushwhacks using map and compass navigation techniques. In the summer season our hikes may include swim stops.

    Our snow shoe outings are typically between 10km and 15km in length and may be on well established trails or exploring new areas off trail.

    Our cross-country ski outings are classic touring ski trips varying in length between 10km and 20km usually. The routes we ski vary between trackset green (beginner) trails to ungroomed black (expert) trails. Ski outings will almost always be designed for a lunch stop at one of the cabins in the park.

    The Club’s out of town trips are usually 2-3 nights duration but may be longer. Recent destinations include Frontenac Park (staying in Westport), Spectacle Lake Lodge (near Barrys Bay), Adirondacks Park NY and the White Mountains NH.

    The Club also hosts several social events during the year in order to provide opportunities for members to get to know each other better in a more relaxed environment.
