Join us on the first of a series of hikes to complete a Beaver Valley Section E2E. This hike is very long at 24.5 kms but the rest of the hikes will be about 15 kms each to accommodate the more difficult terrain in the valley itself. While our first hike is long we will be hiking it at a Humane Hiking pace (or as a very accomplished Toronto section hike leader once said - an "all day" pace) and we will stopping regularly to rest and hydrate. Please make sure you are ready to shuttle at 8:00 am sharp. A local overnight stay is recommended given the early start. Please bring 3L of water, a lunch, snacks, bug spray, sun block, an appreciation of nature and a smile. Hiking boots mandatory. Gaiters and poles recommended. Please bring a change of footwear and a garbage bag for the shuttle given the anticipated mud in spots along the way. No dropouts. Please be honest with your ability to hike the 24.5 km distance.
