Trail Trekkers walks and hikes are free for anyone with a North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Fitness Membership. Non-members can pay a fitness membership day visit fee.

Participants should have good walking or hiking shoes / boots, dress with appropriate wear for weather conditions, and bring hydration and a flashlight.
