Hiking Rules

  • No pets are allowed.
  • No electronic devices with headphones are allowed. Only relevant electronic equipment (i.e. walkie-talkies, satellite phones, GPS) for safety purposes and/or hike details are allowed. Personal cellphones should be turned off during hikes.
  • No alcohol or smoking is allowed on hikes. Social gatherings after a hike may include alcohol, at the hiker's discretion.
  • It is the responsibility of each member to check with the website prior to a hike for any updates. Where specified in the Hike Schedule, members are required to preregister by phone with the hike coordinator.


  • Guests, invited and accompanied by a member, must sign the PMH Waiver before leaving town for the hike. The completed and signed form should be given to the Hike Coordinator

Additional Rules for Covid-19

Due to Covid-19, the following additional rules are adopted until further notice:
  • Maximum of 8 members per hike. No guests, in order to offer the more limited hiking opportunities to as many members as possible. If full, members may still join the wait list, and the coordinator will encourage another hiker to lead a separate hike.
  • All provincial and federal government rules and guidelines, particularly physical distancing, must be followed. Please see COVID-19 info for Albertans.
  • You will not attend a hike if you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms of Covid-19 as listed on the AB Health website COVID-19 Symptoms and Testing.
  • Hikers must carry a mask to use in situations where physical distancing is impossible (e.g., injury, passing a large group on a narrow trail).
  • No carpooling (unless cohabit).
  • You must accept the additional Covid-19 online waiver when registering for a hike.

For multi-day hikes, the maximum number of hikers or participation of guests may be changed on a case-by-case basis in consultation with the coordinators.
