Itinerary:

The terrain is variable but quite hilly in places. The distance is 56 km.

On this event we'll join up with the Dufferin Hi-Land Bruce Trail Club to participate in their one day End-to-End of the Dufferin Hi-Land section. We'll meet up with the other participants at Mono Cliffs Provincial Park, and leave our cars at the parking lot. The BT club will arrange for a bus leaving at 7AM that will take us to the start of the hike, and we'll hike back at our own pace the 56km to our cars. Those making the full distance will receive a badge. Every 7- 10 kilometers along the way, we'll pass a checkpoint where we can replenish water, enjoy snacks provided by our hosts, and if necessary, drop off.

After the hike we'll have dinner at the Mono Cliffs Inn. If any of you are Australian, you will be pleased to know that there is a sign saying "Most Australians welcome" (the proprietor is Australian, lamb is a speciality.) Those finishing the hike early can pass the time downstairs in the Peter Cellars Pub.

Note that we have to leave from Downsview no later than 5:15AM so we have enough time to visit Tim's, arrive at the meeting place on time, and get ourselves ready ie. hiking shoes, sunscreen etc. This is before the subways open. We may be able to help with arranging sharing of cabs or rides.

This event is suitable for advanced hikers only, and is restricted to regular D5 hikers.
