The Alberta Hiking Association represents the more than one million Albertans who walk and/or hike in Alberta for the enjoyment and recreation that outdoor pursuits offer. Many of our membership belong to hiking clubs and meet up groups which organize hiking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing group activities.
Alberta abounds with a wide variety of trails throughout the entire province. There are the well-known day use trails and the lesser known backcountry trails in the national parks of Banff and Jasper. There are trails that are links in both the TransCanada Trail and the National Trail. Just as often, you can find walkers, snowshoers and cross country skiers on the many paths and walkways in Alberta's communities.
The Alberta Hiking Association advocates on behalf of Alberta hikers and acts as a clearinghouse for information, concerns and ideas around issues related to hiking trails, their construction, maintenance and accessibility. Whether you hike, cross country ski or snowshoe, the Alberta Hiking Association works to give you a voice as a stakeholder at meetings with industry and government. Together, we create a strong voice for Alberta's hiking fraternity.
