Easy hikes are short hikes (<3 KM) that are generally flat with little elevation change and mostly clear of tree roots and rocks. Hikes are adjusted according to weather conditions. Footwear with good tread and ankle support are recommended. Hiking poles are recommended, but not required. Bring a small backpack to carry water and light snacks.
Meet at Dunks Bay Parking Lot at the end of Dunks Bay Road in Tobermory. We will car shuttle to the Northern Cairn in Tobermory to start our hike. Wear masks for the car shuttle please. Our hike today will start at the Bruce Trail Northern Cairn located near the Princess Hotel on Bay St. It's at this very location that Ray Lowes officially opened the Bruce Trail in 1967. The Cairn was designed by Ruth Arnsberger and built by Ivan Lemcke. Learn about the history of the Bruce Trail as we walk along the main trail through the village, past the Visitor's Centre and finally reaching Dunks Bay. Here, we will take a short rest here to enjoy the peace and quiet of the lovely sandy beach, before returning to the Meeting Place. We will finish our hike here. All hike participants are invited to the Meeting Place to enjoy some festive goodies and hot apple cider.
