The terrain is variable, hilly with rocky sections. Distance is about 17.5 km. If you can't complete the distance, please do not sign up for the hike.

We will meet at the Devil's Glen Provincial Park, start off with a gradual climb up the escarpment past the Devil's Glen Ski area and past McKinney's Hill, take the Keyhole Side Trail passing through small crevices and narrow openings in the rock, before heading back.

The toughest challenge is the 150 meter climb within early in the hike and then another 100 meter climb right at the end. There are a couple nice lookouts of the area.
