Lethbridge Sports and Social Club - Lethbridge Expeditions

Welcome Explorers and Adventurers!

Check here for the latest conditions of the Waterton Lakes National Park Trails.

Lethbridge Expeditions is an adventure group within Lethbridge Sports and Social Club to organize day trips in and around Lethbridge.

We will plan and organize some trips of our own BUT if you want to recommend a trail or lead a group of members on a hike, let us know and we will add it to the list of trips.  Email us at info@lethbridgesportsandsocialclub.ca

It is important to RSVP so we know who to expect and how to arrange transportation to the hike. If you are comfortable driving and carpooling, we would appreciate if members would contribute towards gas money. 

It is also important that a discussion occurs within the group of level of experience the hikers are and form groups based on the experience of the hikers. No hiker should be left alone and we encourage our members to hike in groups of 3-4 people. 

All members will be required to sign a waiver before heading on a trip. This waiver only needs to be signed once. 

Not yet a member of Lethbridge Sports and Social Club? Join here!

  It is advisable to check in with the Tourist Centre before you leave for your hike to see if the trail is open, and to get a map and directions.
