The terrain is variable with some hills. Length of hike is 25 km, pace is 6 km/h.

This is a challenging "in and out" hike intended to give advanced hikers a good workout. Hikers coming on this event are expected to have D5 level experience and be able to hike 6 km/h continuously over variable terrain. There will be no dropouts. Only those who meet the criteria will be allowed on the event.

The trail follows West Duffins Creek that winds through a riparian habitat, all within Pickering. You can find a map here: Seaton Trail.

Please bring a whistle

While intended as a fast hike, if trail conditions are unfavourable, we'll turn down the pace. If trail conditions are icy, icers may be required.

Note: If you come on a winter hike, you should always have a pair of icers in your pack. You won't have to use them very often, but when it is icy on the trail, you'll need them. The icer is held to your boot with a set of Velcro straps, and keeps you from slipping and sliding. You can purchase good quality icers at MEC or Lee Valley Tools (very good selection.)

Required Items to Bring:
  • Water-2 litre
  • Snacks, energy bars
  • Suitable hiking footware
  • Change of footware for after the hike
  • Whistle
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
  • Light (just in case)
  • Cell phone
  • Icers (if trail conditions are icy)
