some history

The Prairie Pathfinder organization which was established by four women (Leone Banks, Kathleen Leathers, Sheila Spence & Wendy Wilson) in 1998. We have always been advocates for hiking in our province, determined to share the beauty, the history, and the natural wonders of Manitoba that can best be appreciated on foot.
The Prairie Pathfinder walking club was established in September 1998 as a complement to our first publication – ‘Winnipeg Walks’. Over the years it has grown and for the past decade, it has maintained an average paid membership of 500 to 600 hikers.

Winnipeg Walksinteresting fact –  Since it was first published in 1998, Winnipeg Walks has sold over 12,000 copies. That makes it a Canadian best seller – four times over!
