Get Hiking!

It's time to get hiking, and the best way to do so if you are unsure of your fitness or gear is to start

with the Club's day hikes.  Check our latest Fixture List to see what is available.

If you are considering joining the Club but would like to try out a few hikes first, you are welcome

to participate as a visitor.  Please always contact the leader several days in advance of the fixture

to check for space, make arrangements for sharing lifts, and to get more details about where to meet.

Centenary Hut repair

This is an undertaking by the MBC and Vertical Endeavour. We extend the invitation to any interested members to have some fun DIY time in the Berg.  The first step is to measure the window replacements required; to clean out broken window panes and putty; and to take the waste materials out of the Berg.  Warwick Shaw will be leading a hike/work party to Centenary Hut on the weekend 28/29 May 2016.  It is a moderate to hard lower Berg hike to get there and a tent would be needed as the hut is fairly grubby at the moment.
