Itinerary:

The terrain is hilly and challenging. Length of hike is 26 km, pace is 4.5 km/h. Bruce Trail Maps 25/26.

This hike is suitable for strong intermediate and advanced hikers. I've rated it as D5 because of distance and some big hills, but D4 hikers that are up for a bit of a challenge should be fine.

We'll start from the Bruce Trail Club Parking Lot on Campbell's Hill Rd, where the trail goes into the bush on the south side. We'll head north, visit Old Baldy, and have lunch at the Kimberley general store. We'll cross the Valley on Sideroad 7A, follow the main trail on the other side of the valley, and return to our cars on the Campbell's/Graham's Hill side trail . Panoramic views from both sides of the valley. Watch for turkey vultures and buteo hawks.

Maximum group size is set to 1 so that everyone starts on the wait list, passengers will be added as drivers become available. Members willing to drive, members with favourable attendance records, and members that have been on events of similar difficulty may get priority on the wait list. No meet at event, sorry.

  • Hiking shoes
  • 2L of water
  • Snacks and lunch (or buy soup and sandwich at the Kimberly general store!)
