Calling all families with children who love hiking and earning badges!!!

This is the second in a series of ten hikes that will be offered throughout 2024 on a roughly monthly basis so that children who are 15 years of age and younger can earn the Dufferin Hi-Land Adventurer Youth Badge and their parents/guardians can earn the Dufferin Hi-Land Side Trails Badge at the same time!!!  Details regarding the requirements for each badge can be found here:  Each of the ten hikes will be a loop hike so no car shuttles will be needed, and each hike will cover a distance of approximately 6-9 km hiked at a leisurely pace (2-3 km/h) so children and adults alike can participate.

This second hike will be a winter hike to explore some side trails north of Boyne Valley Provincial Park, specifically the Rock Hill Park Side Trail, David Hahn Side Trail, Enchanted Forest Side Trail, Oliver Creek Side Trail, and Moss Haven Side Trail.  Please dress appropriately for a winter hike by dressing in layers (wear an inner layer that wicks sweat away from your skin, a middle layer that keeps you warm, and an outer layer that protects you from wind and snow), wearing gloves/mittens and a toque, and wearing warm and comfortable footwear that has good traction in snow/ice (icers placed over your boots work great!).  Hiking poles or walking sticks are an asset since they will help keep you balanced if the ground is slippery.  As well, make sure you bring enough water and food for a 2-3 hour hike since we’ll be covering a total distance of approximately 6.1 km.
