Margaret Paull was one of those early Bruce Trail volunteers who made such a dream possible.

    We then head back up via a steep zig zag among huge boulders until we meet a formerly impassable cliff,
    now conquered by a spectacular wooden staircase built in 2020 by volunteers from the Peninsula BTC.
    We will take a moment to appreciate the hard work
    and beautiful views before continuing on an easy peasy walk to our end point.
    The trail features cliffs, spectacular lookouts, and dense forests.
    A long drive home but what a spectacular new section of our fabulous footpath to have experienced.

    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. Follow the guidelines for safe & responsible hiking
    4. Personal Protective Equipment:
      • Hikers may choose to wear masks
      • Hikers may carry and use hand sanitizer, but should not be sharing it with the group
    5. Hikers who experience COVID-19 symptoms following a Bruce Trail Club organized hike must inform their local public health unit.
      Find your local health unit at http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/common/system/services/phu/locations.aspx

    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.

    6. Bring your own first aid kit.
