    This is a slower paced hike – we enjoy checking out the flora & fauna along the way but it is about 10 km of tougher trails.

    Join us for a hike through the incomparable Niagara Glen Nature Preserve. There is a variety of trails in the Glen and we’ll take them all in through a series of loops. After eating lunch next to the Niagara River we will continue south along the Whirlpool Trail that (part of the way) hugs the narrow space between the base of the cliffs  and the River. The footing can be tricky but we will take our time and it is worth the experience. We will then climb the stairs at the Whirlpool Beach back to the top and follow the Niagara Pathway back to the Nature Preserve parking lot.

    If you don’t wish to do the Whirlpool Trail there will be an opportunity to drop out and relax in the park where we started the walk. You may wish to visit the Butterfly Conservatory and/or the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens which are a ten minute walk from the Niagara Glen Nature Centre. Just be back at the bus for the departure time which will be provided that morning.

    Hiking boots are recommended. All the trails have rocky portions and some, particularly the Whirlpool Trail, can be wet.

    Bring your lunch, at least two litres of water and sun and insect protection.

    After the hike we will make a refreshment stop on Lundy’s Lane on the way back to Toronto. There are public washrooms at the Niagara Glen Nature Centre which will be available when we arrive and before we start the trip back.

    COVID-19 Precautions Before, During and After your Hike

    1. Each hiker joining a Bruce Trail Club organized hike must perform a self-screening check before hiking.
      Find Ontario’s self-assessment tool here: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/
    2. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, stay home.
    3. Personal Protective Equipment:
      • Hikers may choose to wear masks

    Transportation

    It is the Bruce Trail Conservancy’s current policy that car shuttles are allowed.  It is at the discrepancy of individual hike leaders to make that decision.

    Other Guidelines

    1. Arrive 15 minutes before the start of the hike.
    2. Wear sturdy footwear and appropriate attire for the weather and the terrain.
      Hiking poles are a good idea in any season, especially if the terrain is rocky or slippery. In winter, snowshoes or icers/crampons are needed when conditions dictate.
      Wearing appropriate clothing and footwear prevents injuries and shows consideration for a safe and positive group hiking experience.
    3. Always carry I.D. and your health card.
    4. Bring sufficient water and snacks (or lunch if indicated). A minimum of 1L of water is recommended on all hikes, and 3L is recommended for long, challenging hikes in the heat of the summer.
    5. Bring sunscreen and insect repellent (for spring and summer hikes).
    6. Bring your own first aid kit.
    7. Please leave dogs at home.
