Itinerary:

It's an early start to take advantage of the cool morning air. 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.

BRING EXTRA WATER for hiking during daytime heat. Route may be shortened if a very hot day is forecasted.

HIKE DETAILS: . We will hike the main Bruce Trail from Crawford Forestry Tract, though Crawford Lake Conservation, Nassagaweya Canyon and through Kelso Conservation Area to end the Iroquoia Section of the Bruce Trail. Distance is around 21 km. Please note due to restricted roadside parking in the area, the hike will end at Hilton Falls Conservation area, where there will be an entrance fee of $7 per person.

The hiking pace will be approximately 4.0 km per hour. Slower on uphills. Before you sigh up, be sure you have experience and are able to hike at this pace over rocky, hilly and challenging terrain. If you have only the urban hike experience with TOC, this is NOT an event for you. If you have experience outside TOC, please provide example(s) within comment section, as you register otherwise, you will be removed off attendance and waiting list. Period.

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, rocky and steep hilly terrain, and at the specified pace BEFORE you sign up.

This is a linear hike involving a car shuttle. Hike will be modified or postponed if not enough drivers sign up. Also, additional participants will be added as space in carpool and car shuttle permits. Carpool drivers may be added preferentially to the attendee list. Max number 12 to 15 people

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