      This is a challenging, but richly rewarding series of hikes. Buses depart on all days at 7:30 am sharp from predetermined locations to take all participants to the start of the hike.  Check in is at 7:00 am.

      The registration fee is $50 ($60 for non-BTC members) for all four hikes, or $15 per day that you wish to hike. The fee covers the cost of transportation, entry to Mount Nemo Conservation Area for two days, snacks, and the Waterfall badge for those who complete all four hikes. Hikes will go rain or shine.

      The first weekend meeting location is at Mount Nemo Conservation Area (overflow parking area), 5317 Guelph Line, Milton, ON L9T 2X6.
