This is one of the four day hikes scheduled from Feb 23 to 26. If you are interested in participating in all four hikes and staying in an Airbnb with some of us, please reach out to me.

Meetup location: 30 meters north of the intersection of Bruce Rd 13& Northacres Rd. GPS coordinates: 44.753489, -81.167505. Rural Rocks Side Trail and Obese Side Trail are satellite loop side trails - probably the only two side trails that aren't connected to the main trail. You will see a wonderland of enormous rocks left from a time when this area was the shoreline of an ancient glacial lake. Part of the loop is very rugged and challenging to walk through.

No dogs. No drop out.

It may not be clear ahead of time whether snowshoes are needed or just icers will be sufficient. Come prepared for anything. Icers/microspikes  are a must-have.
