(bi-weekly, Monday afternoons, beginning January 15)
MUNPA’s outing club will organize walks and short hikes every second Monday, from October 2nd until snow makes that problematic. Once that happens, those who wish can switch to snowshoes or cross-country skis. The organizers are Steve Wolinetz and Karen Lippold (but for the moment, Karen Lippold). If you are interested in joining us, please send an e-mail with outing club in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next walk details are normailly sent out to the group and posted on our group web page. If you don't see them here, please check with our contact above for the walk details.

Weather permitting — the current forecast is for rain or freezing rain — Monday’s Outing Club walk will be on the paths at Voisey’s Brook Park in Portugal Cove-St. Phillips at 2:00 pm. Meet on the side of the parking lot near the baseball diamond. Those who want can stop at the Grounds Café at Murray’s Nursery on the way home.

Turn right on Indian Meal Line (10.1. Km from the intersection of Portugal Cove Road and Newfoundland Drive)
