Itinerary:

NOTE:

  • Carpool Location Changed to Sheppard West Subway Station
  • Carpool departure changed to 8 AM.

    This is an all day hike. Hope to be back well into the evening. Bring headlamp or flashlight as it gets dark around 5 PM. Location is about a 2 hr drive, one way. Please arrive 15 min before carpool departure time so that we can be on the road on time. Don't sign up if you need to be back home by specific time.

    The hike is for intermediate or advanced hikers only. If you never hiked with me before, please provide few examples of your experience within the comments section.

    HIKE DETAILS: This hike will take us from Nottawasaga Lookout and we then head up and down the Devil's Glen Ski slope (this means a steep hill climb), and up the staircases into the Devil's Glen Provincial Park with spectacular views. We will end our hike at Nottawasaga Bluffs. Parking fee will apply and will be shared with carpool costs.

    There will be ascents and descents so make sure you have footwear with good traction. Also it may be time to start thinking about snow and the need for icers, but more on that closer to the date, if necessary.

    The hiking pace will be approximately 4 km per hour, slower pace on the uphills.

    We will hike as a group, and thus, wait as necessary for everyone, If you think you'll have uncontrollable urges to be constantly on the move or to sprint ahead, this is NOT an event for you. Speedsters will be put at the back of the line.

    Please ensure you can hike the distance over the uneven and steep hilly terrain, and at the specified pace BEFORE you sign up.

    This hike involves a car shuttle, hike will be modified or postponed if not enough drivers sign up. Also, additional participants will be added as space permits.

    If you're travelling by TTC to the carpool location, you're responsible for taking into consideration the TTC SUNDAY schedule, any service disruptions, etc in order to arrive on time.

    BE PREPARED: We will be hiking rain, snow, or sunshine.
