Weekend Trip including Friday to Bruce Peninsula (3 full days, 2 nights) with opportunities to hike in Bruce Peninsula National Park, Dyer's Bay/Cape Chin and in Lion's Head Provincial Park primarily on the Bruce Trail with many spectacular lookouts.

Only members with previous experience of hiking outside of GTA can attend. This trip is not suitable for new members. PLEASE NOTE that we will hike as a group, and nobody will jump ahead and run trails. The pace will be moderate but distances might be up to 20-25 km a day. If you like to run trails, this trip is NOT for you.

The weekend including Friday will be a great opportunity to explore Bruce peninsula and the most beautiful sections of the Bruce trail winding through challenging landscape with spectacular lookouts.

I booked a nice house with 2 comfortable specious bedrooms (one for female and one for male participants) which each can accommodate 4 people (bunk beds with all the bedding). There are the following facilities in the house: Fully-equipped guest kitchen with fridge, food storage space & spices, Common living room with harvest table, books, games & fireplace, Two outdoor patios & BBQ, Spacious backyard with fire pit and hammocks. PLEASE NOTE that breakfasts and dinners will be communal to save time and have more options of homemade meals.

You have to take Friday, September 14 off in order to join as we want to avoid bad traffic and go hiking after lunch. A mandatory pre-trip meeting to discuss food, carpool, gear etc. will be held on Wednesday, September 5 at 7:30 pm. You have to pay through TOC $94.28 before registration cut-off deadline which is set for August 19, Sunday. PLEASE NOTE that the amount is non-refundable starting August 20, 2018.
