Blind Beginnings Hikes Coming to Vancouver Island and Kelowna!

Join Blind Beginnings for Family-Friendly Hikes this August in Nanaimo and Kelowna!

We had an amazing time hosting our last few socially distanced hikes at Pacific Spirit Park and Kokanee Creek Park, so we are doing it again — this time in Nanaimo and Kelowna on Saturday August 15th! Hiking is a great way to not only get back to nature, but also beat this August heat!

In Nanaimo, will be going on a hike on the trail at the Colliery Dam Loop while following distancing measures and other public health regulations. Colliery Dam Loop is a 2.3 kilometer moderately trafficked loop trail located near Nanaimo, British Columbia that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking and nature trips and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.

In Kelowna we are going to be hiking around Shannon Lake Regional Park. This is an easy hike and it is approximately a 2 km loop around Shannon Lake. It boasts a short trail system, picnic area, and it hosts a great habitat for water birds and turtles. The park has washrooms and after your hike you can enjoy a picnic at the beach.
