This weekend will provide us with an
opportunity to cover about 75km of the Bruce
Trail, in the end-to-end quest. Start and end
hiking points will depend on how far along the
Trail we get by the July long weekend, but
probably will be in the Sydenham section.
We will drive up to Duntroon on Thursday after
work, and will stay at the Highlands
Nordic Farmhouse on Thursday, Friday, and
Saturday nights. This will allow us to get on the
trail relatively early each day. The Farmhouse is
fully equipped with plenty of bathrooms, a sauna
(nice after a hike), fire pit and bbq.
We'll do three day hikes, each around 25km in
length, hiking around 6 hours each day. Remember,
day 2 and day 3 will be more painful than day 1!
We will be sharing the Farmhouse with TOC
members who will be on a TOC cycling
event. Please indicate when you sign up if
you have a bike rack and could help out
transporting one or two bikes up to the Farmhouse.
We'll purchase communal supplies for breakfasts
and dinners. Each member will need to bring
fixings for three lunches, but there is a
refrigerator in which to store items that need to
be kept cool.
On Saturday afternoon/evening, after the hike,
those who want to will head to nearby Blue
Mountain, to enjoy the facilities at the Scandinave Spa. Each member
will pay his or her own entry fee for the Spa, the
price is not included in the cost for the weekend.
There will be a mandatory pre-trip meeting on
Tuesday, June 21 at Chalker's, starting at 6:30pm.

hikes with me in the past two years is required.
If you have no TOC D4 or D5 hike events, indicate

two years in the notes when you sign up - waiting
list priority will be given to members who provide
