This is my 1st time leading this challenging 20.5 KM hike.

This hike will be pretty challenging with 2 climbs of over 200 meters each.

We'll start the hike, completing the first 9 KM on the Bruce Trail, which takes us to a lookout over the Pretty River valley, where we'll stop for lunch.

On the way back, we'll complete the Russ McConnel Side Trail, the shortcut Pretty River Side Trail and your reward at the end of the final big climb, will be the caves on the Standing Rock Side Trail.

Total Distance 20.5 kM. If you cannot walk the entire distance, please do not sign up for this hike.

Please note that there aren't any washrooms on this route.
