This is a hike for current Toronto Bruce Trail Club Hike Leaders to meet some of the other Toronto Bruce Trail Club Hike Leaders and those interested in becoming Hike Leaders and would like an opportunity to ask questions before taking the Hike Ontario Certified Hike Leader Training scheduled for June.  However anyone is welcome to join us. Hiking Director Tom Swales and other Hike Leaders who have taken the Hike Ontario Certified Hike Leader (CHL) Course will be available to answer questions about the course, the process of becoming a Certified TBTC Hike Leader, and expectations of a Hike Leader. There will be further opportunities to mingle after the hike at a local pub.

We will hike on the Culham Trail from Streetsville to Credit Meadows Park  and return. Lunch will be at km 6.3 by the Credit River. The is a pleasant and fairly easy hike with only one major hill. We will be walking on packed gravel, dirt and grass trails as well as a short section of paved trail near River Grove Park.
