Description

SOUP'S ON!  Join us for a lovely snowshoe on the adjoining properties of Norine & Garth and Betty & Mike, where mature forest offers protection from the wind and views of Old Baldy may be seen if it's a clear day.  Afterward we'll enjoy a warming lunch in Norine & Garth's home.  They will provide the soup, plus coffee & tea and you'll bring a sandwich, or your choice of accompaniment to go with it.  If you'd like to bring goodies to share for dessert, feel free!  Folks are welcome to show up just for the lunch, or conversely, just for the hike.  If you are there just for lunch, please arrive about 12:00p.m. We may still be on the trail.  Depending on the conditions, we may use snowshoes, icers or just boots, so please come prepared.If you have any questions please contact beavervalleytrailactivities@gmail.com. The hike leader will inform the group in the morning on Fen. 24  if weather conditions preclude the hike.  Hope to see you there!  Please car pool if possible.

COVID-19 Precautions for your Hike 

  1. Each hiker joining a Bruce Trail Club organized hike must perform a self-screening check before hiking.
    Find Ontario's self-assessment tool here: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/
  2. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, stay home.

 

Transportation

All hikers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the hike.

Currently, there are no car shuttles on hikes – all hikes must be out-and-back or loop hikes.

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.
