Join Elsie Buck and the Island Hoppers in 2010 on the snowshoe trails at Ben Eoin beginning in January 2010 and continuing until the snow disappears. Walks are held at 10:00 am every Wednesday beginning January 6th and every second Sunday beginning January 10th.
The Cape Breton Island Hoppers is a registered non-profit organization composed of people from all parts of Cape Breton Island who enjoy the outdoors. They recognize that walking is a simple but effective form of exercise that enables them to discover the beauties of the island while increasing personal health.
The CB Island Hoppers is the only island wide walking club. They walk in all four counties of the Island, in such places as Middle Head Ingonish, Uisge Ban Falls near Baddeck, Port Hawkesbury, Gull Cove near Gabarus and Cape North on the Money Point Trail, the most northerly part of the island.
They have also attended walk events in other Atlantic provinces. One of their first walking events attended as a club was the Confederation Bridge walk in May 1997, from PEI to New Brunswick.
Most of the club’s walk events are usually of about 2 to 2.5 hours’ duration and the distance covered is a minimum of 10 kilometres or about 6.25 miles; optional five kilometre or one hour events are now available for those who don’t feel up to the full 10km walk.
Scheduled Guided Walks and Year Round/Seasonal Events programs take place regularly at approximately two week intervals, usually on Sunday afternoons with some exceptions for holiday and special walking weekends.
