We love puppies and seeing them at our hikes, however many of our hikes enter national parks where dogs are strictly prohibited. Check each individual event description for details to see if dogs are allowed. Two great dog friendly trails to keep an eye out for are Bells Rapids in Swan Valley, and Jorgenson Park in Kalamunda.
Some of our hikes are specifically designed for the kiddies and entire family to enjoy. You will find this information on the booking page, and our facebook event page.
Other hikes are designed for more pace and include much more difficult trails, such as our endurance hikes.

Hikes with The Hike Collective typically have two Trail guides. Some of our more advanced tours may have three guides and some of the smaller group tours may have only one.
Group sizes on our tours vary, but generally you can expect somewhere between 5 and 15 guests.
The Hike Collective has as a core principle, protection for the environment. This is reflected in our leave no trace policy where we strive to ensure minimal impact on the trails we hike. But our impact is not limited to physical impacts on the trails. We are aware that our guides and guests must travel to our trail experience and this results in greenhouse gas emissions. We encourage our guests to minimise this impact by car pooling but travel to our experiences is unavoidable.
The Hike Collective has undertaken an assessment of the Scope one and Scope Two greenhouse gas emissions associated with our business, This includes the emissions from guides traveling to each trail experience and the emissions related to operating our office. In addition we have estimated the emissions from our guests attending our experiences.
To offset the impact of our operations, the Hike Collective donates one dollar from every trail experience ticket to GreenFleet Australia. GreenFleet use these donations to undertake reforestation of native forests throughout Australia. These projects have multiple benefits from improving biodiversity, management of soil erosion and a reduction of dry land salinity. GreenFleet certify the level of greenhouse gases they estimate will be offset over the life of these reforestation projects. Based on this this information we believe these donations will more than offset the greenhouse gas emissions associated with our business.
