THE CARPOOL LEAVES SHEPPARD WEST SUBWAY STATION AT 8 AM

So, this is my first time leading this in & out hike along the Bruce Trail to Noisy River Provincial Park.
However, I've been in the park 2 other times.
Heck, I learned how to use the camera on my first ever smart phone in this park.

Please bring a lunch and at least 1-2 Litres of water.
We'll get to the halfway turn around point and then stop and find a spot to stop for lunch on the way back.

If you cannot walk the entire distance please do not sign up for this hike.
