Victoria Club Tread is an Outdoor Recreation club based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Our activities include: hiking, cycling, backpacking, camping, cross-country skiing, walking and social events.
We meet quarterly to plan our events for the next 3 months. Following the meeting we publish our schedule of events online. Please check back regularly as regularly for additions and changes or subscribe to our RSS feed to have them sent to you automatically.
Events run year round with the majority of extended trips being from late spring through early fall. Many of these trips have been on the island and Gulf Islands (Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, the West Coast Trail, various trails in Strathcona Provincial Park, Flores Island, Meares Island, Nootka Island and Cape Scott). Past events have seen the club visit every National Park in the Canadian Rockies and many provincial parks including Cathedral, Garabaldi, Height of the Rockies, Kokanee Glacier, Manning, Naikoon, Mt Assiniboine and Mt Robson. Trips to the US Pacific Northwest are not uncommon with the primary focus being Olympic National Park. Other Pacific Northwest destinations have included the Mt Baker area, Mount Rainier, Mt St Helens and Mt Hood. There have also been trips to the US desert southwest.
While extended trips have mainly been backpacking, car-camping or hostel based during the summer, we have also gone cross-country skiing in Yellowstone National Park and to the Bowron Lakes.
We do not limit ourselves to North America either. The club has held trips to Italy and the British Isles.
