Itinerary:

NOTE: THE CARPOOL LEAVES SHEPPARD WEST STATION @ 10:00 AM

This is an intermediate hike that involves some hills, uneven terrain and probably some muddy areas, but overall, the hike isn't too challenging, it's just rather long.

Please bring a lunch and at least 1-2 Litres of water. We will stop for breaks to enjoy the countryside, but there will not be any drop offs. My master plan for lunch is to stop at Scotsdale Farm.

Total Distance 23 km

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

DRIVERS, WHEN YOU SIGN UP, PLEASE ANSWER THE CARPOOL QUESTION REGARDING THE AMOUNT OF PASSENGERS YOU CAN TAKE IN YOUR CAR!!!

For those of you choosing to meet at the event location, instead of the carpool, please ensure that you come on time
