2018 marks the Island Mountain Ramblers 60th anniversary. That’s a good number of years, definitely over the hill. It hasn’t been an easy journey. It marks countless footsteps, snowshoe tracks created and melted, booted routes wandered, and rocky bluffs scrambled. It’s a significant milestone.

To celebrate we are we are issuing a challenge to the membership. Come participate on club trips and walk the many ridges that Vancouver Island has to offer and earn the distinction of being an Island Mountain Ramblers: Ridge Rambler.


Hike 10 ridges from the list as a club hike, between May 1 st 2016 and December 31, 2018 to earn the distinction of being a Ridge Rambler. We are having crests made up to recognise the achievement.

The Ridges

Easy (day trips)

Medium (long day trips or multi-day trips)

Hard (multi-day trips with lots of elevation gain)

Did we forget one?
