Description

This is a special series of 6 hikes to complete the Iroquoia section of the Bruce Trail.  There will be a new accomplishment badge, included in the registration fee - which is currently being designed and will be mailed to hikers who complete the series once it is available.  (It is unfortunately, unlikely to be available by the time of the sixth hike)

For this inaugural E2E in 6, we will be following the main trail southbound eventually finishing in Grimsby. Please note that you are signing up for the entire series of six hikes. The Iroquoia in 6 series is geared to experienced long distance hikers with the expectation of a 3.5  to 5.0 km/ hr. pace maintained over an 18 to 22 km day.  No dropout points have been established and therefore hikers who must drop out, will be responsible for their own transportation.

Hikers will be expected to to be wearing proper hiking boots and layered clothing with the expectation of cool and possible wet weather conditions. Sufficient food and water for a full day of hiking is required and hiking poles, crampons and wet weather gear are recommended. A 20 minute on-trail lunch break will be scheduled.

The fee goes towards supporting the Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club, which in turn supports the mission of the Bruce Trail Conservancy, which is: "Preserving a ribbon of wilderness, for everyone, forever."

For the time being, registration for the Iroquoia E2E-in-Six will be limited to members of the Bruce Trail Conservancy.  Hikers can belong to any section.

maximum of 1 (of the 6) hikes can be self-completed as a result of scheduling challenges, but it is intended that this badge be earned while hiking as part of a group led by a certified hike leader.

Please note there are no refunds!

This particular set of 10 hikes is intended to be BRISK.  Please be honest about your degree of physical fitness prior to registration.

TRANSPORTATION

This series will be through hikes and will require car shuttling, you must be willing to drive or to be a passenger. Some parking locations require paid parking, and hikes that enter Halton Conservation Areas will require reservations.  The fee for the E2E-in-Six does not cover any parking/entry fees for hikers who are not members of the Halton CA and/or Hamilton CA.  If the group has enough hikers who are members of a CA, those will be the cars chosen to park in those areas so as to minimize costs.  At least one hike starts at one CA and ends at another, so parking fees are unavoidable for non-CA members.
