    Description

    This is the first of two family hikes in November.  We will meet at the Taylor Road parking lot at Woodend Conservation Area and enjoy a leisurely paced (approximately 3km/hr) 90 minute hike on the main Bruce Trail as well as on the Wetland Ridge Side trail.  There will be some hills, beautiful forest, wetlands & vineyard vistas.

    During this hike youth hikers will be encouraged to think about how they are using their 5 senses during the hike & after the hike they can do a small write up or drawing of how they used their 5 senses during the hike & bring this to the second hike to earn their Young Nature Blazers Badge.  Youth hikers that earn both the Young Nature Blazers Badge and the Young Trail Blazers Badge will receive a copy of Birthday Boots, by Cindy Conlon, a delightful tale of a young family’s first hike on the Bruce Trail.

    All youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and the registration process must be completed for each family member separately, including children, so we have an accurate head count.  Participant numbers are limited.  Use your membership number for any youth you will be bringing.

    If you are new to Bruce Trail hikes please review the Know Before You Go section on brucetrail.org to ensure you are prepared for your hiking adventure & familiar with hiking responsibly & safely in the time of Covid-19.

    If you are a new Bruce Trail member or don’t have a membership number yet please contact the hike leader for information on how to register.

    Due to Covid restrictions & social distancing requirements please ensure you are prepared & self sufficient.  Have masks (not required to wear but you should have on hand), hand sanitizer, first aid supplies, water, snacks.  We cannot share.
