Do you offer guided hikes for individuals/groups?

The short answer is no, I don’t.  I do however offer guided group hikes for select organizations in support of mental health.

Where is the best place to hike with my dog?

Great question! The reality is that we have an abundance of on-leash trails and off-leash parks for dog  owners. Check out The Ultimate Guide to Hiking with Dogs in Ottawa + Region for a full list of trails and insights on how to hike with dogs while promoting responsible recreation.

Where should I hike today?

Any trail? All the trails? Ok, maybe not Rock Dunder, Eagles Nest, and Gatineau Park. Which are all lovely, but often crowded and there is so much more out there.  It simply depends on what type of hiker you are, what trail features you like, and how far you want to travel. If you don’t already have the Guide to Hiking Trails in Ottawa + Region, check out the Wilderness page. New trails are being added all the time! Each trail report features exactly what you need to know to make an informed decision on which trail would suit you best.

If you ever need a hiking buddy…

Oh man, always say hello on the trails, it’s so good to meet new friends! Teaming up for a hike together however is not my thing chicken wing. #itsnotyouitsme My hiking is always a last minute decision and I consider it precious alone time that’s much needed to balance out life. A great alternative is to use the resources from here, gather some friends, and have fun exploring yourselves!

Is this your full-time job?

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a blogger, nor an influencer. I am an IT consultant that works full time. Weekends are sacred and mostly offline. GirlGoneGood and Little Hikers Club is done in my spare time, when creativity hits, and is my little way of paying it forward in life.
