Itinerary:

NOTE: THE CARPOOL LEAVES SHEPPARD WEST STATION @ 8:30 AM

This is a relatively challenging hike, but your reward is two of the finest fall lookouts in the province (in my completely biased opinion)

Length of hike is 21 km

This hike is suitable for intermediate to advanced hikers hikers.

Greatest challenge on this are two massive hills that we have to climb to cross the valley, but there are plenty of other ups and downs just to keep you busy. The majority of the hike, will be on single-track trails, which could be quite rocky as well as muddy.

Individuals willing to drive will get priority on the wait list, if required.

DRIVERS, WHEN YOU SIGN UP, PLEASE ANSWER THE CARPOOL QUESTION IN REGARDS TO THE AMOUNT OF PASSENGERS YOU CAN TAKE IN YOUR CAR, or else you may be moved to the wait list until this is completed!!!

For those of you who are choosing to meet at the event, please try to arrive on time.

Cool beans :)
