    Participant Guidelines

    1. All kms. mentioned are according to maps in Edition 29 of The Bruce Trail Reference.
    2. Please arrive 10 minutes before start of hike.
    3. Participants are expected to wear appropriate attire for the weather and the terrain. In summer, sturdy footwear is necessary. In winter, snowshoes or icers/crampons are needed when conditions dictate. It is a good idea to bring these items if there is snow on the ground and the hike leader will advise you as to the best footwear for the day. Hiking poles are a good idea in any season, especially if the terrain is rocky or slippery. Wearing appropriate clothing and footwear prevents injuries and shows consideration for a safe and positive group hiking experience.
    4. Always carry I.D. and your health card.
    5. For spring and summer hikes bring sunscreen, insect repellent and water.
    6. Please leave dogs at home.

    Hosting Club: Niagara, Iroquoia
    Category: General Hike

    Hike Leader(s): Richard Reble Click here to contact Hike Leader(s)
    Pace: Medium – 3 to 4 km/hr
    Terrain: Dependent on Conditions, Moderate – Some hills and/or some poor footing

    Description

    This loop hike takes us along a wooded piece of the escarpment and through an old limestone quarry (pre-dynamite days) on a piece of the Bruce Trail.

    We’ll meet at the Bruce Trail crossing on Quarry Rd. above Beamsville. To get there, take the QEW east to Ontario St. in Beamsville. Exit onto Ontario St. and take Ontario to King St. in downtown Beamsville. Turn left on King St. and go 2 km to Quarry Rd. on your right. Turn right on Quarry Rd. and drive to the top of the escarpment where you’ll find a wide shoulder bordering a chain link fence on your right. Park in the ample space beside the fence.

    Wear hiking boots and bring water. For something a little stronger than water, we’ll go for a pub stop in Beamsville after the hike.

    Description

    We will hike the stunning trail from the parking lot to The Narrows, an entrance from McCrae Lake to Georgian Bay and back to our cars. It will be a full day, due to the driving distance, but I assure you it is worth the drive! Bring a packed lunch, snacks, at least 2 liters of water, sunscreen, and appropriate clothing. We will likely stop for supper before heading home.

    The McCrae Lake Conservation Reserve is a 2,039 hectare managed area of crown land located in the Muskoka District of Ontario, Canada.  It’s a very popular semi-wilderness area that is used for a variety of outdoor recreational activities, including hiking, camping, canoeing, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and photography.  There are several kilometres of maintained trails for each activity, and the relatively open terrain offers countless opportunities for off-trail exploration.  Extending from McDonald Lake in the east, adjacent to Highway 400, to Georgian Bay on the west and the Gibson River to the north, outdoor activity opportunities are endless.  McCrae Lake is completely contained within the Reserve.
