Itinerary:

NOTE: THE CARPOOL LEAVES SHEPPARD WEST STATION @ 9:30 AM

This is a moderate to intermediate hike that is very hilly with a variety of terrain along the trails. The hike will be a mix of main Bruce trail and side trails, with lunch somewhere along the way.

Terrain is a bit challenging with several rolling hills including one of nearly 75 meters towards the end of the hike. I would probably actually call this hike a D3.5 based on the amount of hills and the fact the trails are often muddy / slippery.

Total Distance 14.5 km. If you cannot walk the entire distance, please do not sign up for this hike.

NOTE: There are no washroom facilities at this event

DRIVERS, WHEN YOU SIGN UP, PLEASE WRITE IN THE NOTES SECTION, THE AMOUNT OF PASSENGERS YOU CAN TAKE IN YOUR CAR!, or else you might be moved to the wait list until this is completed.
