In this “Introduction to Hiking” series of workshops we will share the many joys of hiking.  You will learn how to prepare for a hike; safety issues that might be involved, what to bring on the trail, reading the blazes and maps; and the different types of hikes offered by Niagara Bruce Trail Club. Each workshop will include a 20-minute presentation and question-and-answer period, followed by a 1.5hr hike.  Wear sturdy walking shoes (if you have them) and clothing appropriate for the weather. Bring water.

Location of workshops:

Sep 10 - Queenston Heights Park, Niagara Parkway.  Enter the park at the roundabout, make first left and an immediate left to see the cairn.  Park next to the Bruce Trail Cairn. Paid parking.

Sep 17 - Woodend Conservation Area, Taylor Rd, Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Park at the entrance to the park, near Taylor Rd.

Sep 24 - Kinsmen Park, 3820 Frost Rd, Beamsville.

We recommend participation in all three workshops but all/any are optional.

This course is open to members and non-members.  Cost is $30 for members, $40 for non-members. Upon completion of ALL three workshops participants will receive an NBTC neck scarf free ($15 value).  No refunds.

Sessions are conducted rain or shine.
