Description

This hike route quickly enters a wooded area on Valley slope. There will be plenty of up-and-down walking until we reach Eugenia Falls Conservation Area. This is a scenic section of Trail, walking along the side of the Beaver River, crossing the river and walking along more riverside. There are old structures still in place that show some of the early history of development in the area. Hikers will see a good view of the high Eugenia Falls. This hike is a there-and-back route.

COVID-19 Precautions Before, During and After your Hike

  1. Each hiker joining a Bruce Trail Club organized hike must perform a self-screening check before hiking.

  2. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, stay home.

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.
