This will be an in and out hike from the Kolapore parking lot. We pass along a field, through cedar and beautiful hardwood forest, encountering signs of old stone borders. On winter hikes we may encounter bare ground, light snow, deep snow, or ice.  Please bring snowshoes and icers. Wear appropriate clothing for the weather plus water and a snack.  Participants should have some experience with snowshoeing.

COVID-19 Precautions Before, During and After your Hike

  1. Each hiker joining a Bruce Trail Club organized hike must perform a self-screening check before hiking.

  2. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, stay home.

Other Guidelines

  1. Arrive 15 minutes before the start of the hike.
  2. Wear sturdy footwear and appropriate attire for the weather and the terrain.
    Hiking poles are a good idea in any season, especially if the terrain is rocky or slippery. In winter, snowshoes or icers/crampons are needed when conditions dictate.
    Wearing appropriate clothing and footwear prevents injuries and shows consideration for a safe and positive group hiking experience.
  3. Always carry I.D. and your health card.
  4. Bring sufficient water and snacks (or lunch if indicated). A minimum of 1L of water is recommended on all hikes, and 3L is recommended for long, challenging hikes in the heat of the summer.
  5. Bring sunscreen and insect repellent (for spring and summer hikes).
  6. Bring your own first aid kit.
  7. Please leave dogs at home.
