Thursday Empowerment HikeSign up for this hike by private message on the Daringly Mindful FaceBook page by Wednesday evening at 9 pm.  hike is about stepping a wee bit out of your comfort zone in order to create some challenge during your hike; quicken your pace a bit and see out it feels. This is for those who want a workout and will accommodate any hiker’s level depending on your pace. The average time to complete this hike is 45 to 60 minutes, however, it can take shorter or longer depending on your fitness level or how you feel that day and what your intention is for the hike. Starting times may change as the temperature rises.

Sunday Connection HikeSign up for this hike by private message on the Daringly Mindful FaceBook page by Saturday evening at 9 pm. Except for the last Sunday of every month, Sundays are dedicated to various trails throughout the Okanagan. These hikes will range from 2 to 4 hours, and will be rated moderate to difficult. Again, your pace will determine how much time you spend on the trail. One of our intentions is to advocate physical fitness, but first and foremost, we are inspiring personal and social connection within nature so, don’t worry about your level or being left behind as no one will ever hike alone. Our hike will begin at 10 am, however, starting times may change as the temperature rises.

Sunday Serenity HikeSign up for this hike by private message on the Daringly Mindful FaceBook page by Saturday evening at 9 pm. The last Sunday of every month is dedicated to a Flat Trail. This hike was created for those who enjoy a leisurely hike in order to slow down, take in the scenery and “smell the roses.” If you like, bring your camera and grab some great shots as we explore less strenuous trails in the Kelowna area. Our walk will begin at 10 am, however, starting times may change as the temperature rises.
