About Us

Sheep River Ramblers Hiking Club (SRRHC) is an all-year-round hiking club in the beautiful Alberta Foothills. We also walk, snowshoe and cross-country ski in winter.

Sheep River Ramblers Hiking Club has its own theme song! We chose local artist’s Paul Rumbolt’s song “Walk with Us”.

Sheep River Ramblers Hiking Club has its own logo designed by one of the talented former hikers.

Sheep River Ramblers Hiking Club has been actively involved in the community over the years, including a booth at the Lifestyle & Wellness Festival portion of the Grande Cycling Tour of Alberta; manning a water & Gatorade station for Millarville Half-Marathon for a number of years in a row; Black Diamond Parade; Library Book Sales during Discovery Day in Turner Valley; Longview Parade 2018 & 2019.

Sheep River Ramblers Hiking Club has a Facebook group where we share information, photos from our outings and other pertinent things. This is a CLOSED group with its content only visible to the members (here is the link).

Sheep River Ramblers Hiking Club has exceeded every initial expectation. As the word spreads, the Club is becoming more popular and growing in membership daily. There are currently over 500 people on the membership list. All these individuals come on walks, hikes and rambles and they also attend educational and information sessions. There is a regular ‘core’ group of individuals who commit to most outings; there are others who join in when they are available.

Rambler Facilitators

Weather permitting, walks, hikes and/or snowshoe and cross-country skiing outings in winter months are organized on a weekly basis. A group of volunteers have stepped forward to facilitate the outings – most of those individuals have first aid training and a couple of them are certified as Outdoor Hiking Leaders with the Outdoor Council of Canada.

Our outings range in difficulty – from Easy and Beginner walks and hikes to Intermediate and Advanced hikes. The Hike Ratings page on this website explains more about how we categorize hikes.
