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

This is the sixth 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 sixth hike will be an early summer hike to explore some side trails within Boyne Valley Provincial Park, specifically the Boyne Valley Side Trail and Murphy’s Pinnacle Side Trail.  Please dress appropriately for an early summer hike by dressing in lightweight and breathable clothing, wearing a sunhat, and wearing comfortable footwear that has good traction.  It is also advised that you bring sunscreen, bug spray, a light sweater, and suitable rain apparel in case conditions require their use.  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 6.4 km.

Hopefully you’ll be able to join me on Sunday, June 30th!  Until then, happy hiking, everyone!
