Please ignore if you see "waiting list", I will allow up to 20 participants with previous D4 experience and reasonable attendance records depending on driver capacity. If you don't have a history with the TOC, please include some comments in the notes about your hiking experience.

This hike is suitable for intermediate hikers who like to step up the pace a bit. It is not suitable for beginners.

The terrain is variable, hilly with rocky sections. Distance is about 20 km, pace is 4.5 km/h.

We will meet at the Devil's Glen Provincial Park, start off with a gradual climb up the escarpment past the Devil's Glen Ski area and into the Nottawasaga Bluffs Conservation Area, take the Keyhole Side Trail passing through small crevices and narrow openings in the rock, visit the bluffs, and take the Mad River Side Trail along the Mad River back to our starting point.

Those willing to drive, regular D4 hikers, and those with good attendance records will be given preference on the waiting list
