Peachland Trekkers Trail Rating Guidelines
The following two-part rating system was designed by the Canadian Volkssport Federation as an estimation of the difficulty of a walking/hiking trail. Peachland Trekkers use this guide to decide what rating to assign the trail(s). The first part uses a number to refer to the difficulty of the incline while the second part uses a letter to refer to the nature of the terrain.

Incline Difficulty
1 very little hill or stair climbing A almost entirely on pavement, probably suitable for baby stroller
2 some moderate hill or stair climbing B a significant part of the walk takes place on well-groomed trails with very little more difficult terrain
3 some significant hill or stair climbing C a significant part of the walk takes place on somewhat difficult terrain (rocky/rooted paths)
4 a good deal of significant hill or stair climbing D a significant part of the walk takes place on very difficult terrain
5 many steep hills or high altitude trails E the majority of the walk takes place on very difficult terrain

Extreme weather conditions could also raise the difficulty of the routes, thus Trekkers should take caution under certain weather conditions
