The Meanderthals are a hiking group within the Canmore Seniors Association.
The group was formed in 1993 after several seniors wishing to hike, but not alone, got together to hike in our amazing mountains. The initial members numbered 15, but over the last several years, the number has grown to over 300 seniors.
Members of the Association can automatically become a member of the Meanderthals.
Participants should be able to hike, have good boots and poles and will have to pack a lunch and the necessities for a day's outing in the mountains.
Our Spring Organising Meeting was held on Wed April 10 at 11:00 am in Creekside Hall.
The minutes will be available here soon for those who couldn't attend.

There are four levels of hiking difficulty within the Meanderthals click for Details, which accommodate all levels of hiking ability.
There can be multiple groups in each level depending on the interest in the planned hike. Each group is led by an experienced hiker. The number of hikers per group is usually restricted to 12 or 15 with a minimum of 4 per hike as recommended by Parks Canada for safety reasons.
The hiking areas include Kananaskis, Banff, Kootenay, Yoho, and some along the highway to Jasper.
