The Voice of Alberta Hikers

The Alberta Hiking Association represents Albertans who hike and snowshoe in Alberta for enjoyment and recreation in the great outdoors. Our membership includes both individual members and the members of 20 hiking clubs in the province.

Alberta abounds with a wide variety of trails. There are well-known day use trails and lesser known backcountry trails in crown land, provincial parks and the national parks. Some trails link with the TransCanada Trail. And, of course, many trails and pathways in Alberta’s communities.

The Alberta Hiking Association advocates on behalf of Alberta hikers and acts as a clearinghouse for information, concerns, and ideas around issues related to hiking, trails, and trail construction, maintenance and accessibility. Wherever you hike, the Alberta Hiking Association works to give you a voice as a stakeholder at meetings with tourism, industry and government. Together, we create a strong voice for Alberta hikers.
