    Distance: 10 km with an optional additional 4.5 km.

    Description

    Join us for an Iroquoia pop-up hike – the first in the “Up the Iroquoia!” series of hikes exploring the mighty Iroquoia Section of the Bruce Trail.  We will take in the magnificent heights of Kelso in a combination loop/”in-and-out”.  The main hike is 10 kms which will take us back to the cars where folks can drop out if they so desire.  The more intrepid among us will grasp the nettle firmly and head to the Hilton Falls parking lot and back (4.5 kms).  Participants must navigate their own way through the Conservation Halton website to make at least two back-to-back two-hour reservations (4 hours total) if they opt for the 10 kms.  Three two-hour back-to-back reservations suggested if the 15 km hike is chosen.  Halton Conservation annual pass membership strongly recommended as we will be hiking other Halton Conservation trails in the weeks ahead.  Please don’t forget the Daylight Savings Time change the day of the hike.  Hiking boots mandatory.  Bring plenty of liquids, a snack and a lunch.  Your own song and singing on the trail optional.  Beatles preferred.  Godspeed.

    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.
    5. Bring sunscreen and insect repellent (for spring and summer hikes).
    6. Bring your own first aid kit.
    7. Please leave dogs at home.

      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.

    Description

    he Fletcher Creek Ecological Preserve is a unique natural area. The area is 414 acres in size and is located at the headwaters of the Spencer Creek Watershed. The area is an important groundwater recharge area and is considered a provincially significant wetland.

    An abandoned quarry at the site was rehabilitated, resulting in the creation of a rare type of wetland. Environmental improvements to the area resulting from the restoration are significant and include the expansion of a fen plant community — the rarest form of wetland in Ontario — creation of additional habitat for rare plants and animals already in the area, a new breeding area for leopard frogs, snakes, and a variety of small mammals, such as groundhogs, foxes and bats. A mix of coniferous and deciduous trees will create a canopy that, over time, will provide valuable shelter for wintering birds and mammals. The area contains a trail system and interpretive panels.

    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.
    5. Bring sunscreen and insect repellent (for spring and summer hikes).
    6. Bring your own first aid kit.
    7. Please leave dogs at home.

    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.
    5. Bring sunscreen and insect repellent (for spring and summer hikes).
    6. Bring your own first aid kit.
    7. Please leave dogs at home.
