Why the need for ...
Midweek hikes

It all started when the organiser of midweek hikes, Jean Williams, and  her husband retired.  Walking was advised for health reasons and what better way of feeling free and easy during the week, away from the crowds at weekends, than midweek hiking.

The walks are generally more laid back than the Sunday hikes and often a venue is chosen where we indulge in a snack lunch or braai.  Slow and moderate groups are formed as required. These midweek hikes are highly recommended, so come and see for yourself.

Below is the abbreviated March, April, May and June 2006 programme.  For details of the complete programme, kindly click on the respective month below. The coloured words are hyperlinks to further information.
