Description

Our hike takes us along a route that showcases much of the new construction that has recently been completed in the Hogg's Falls area. Multiple bridges across the Boyne River allow for hiking loops. We will walk southward from the parking lot along the Main Trail and then we will cross the Boyne River. The Trail rises well above the Boyne River meaning there's some steep inclines. Another bridge is crossed to return to the other side of the Boyne and then we include a loop into uplands. A visit to see the Falls is a special view.

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.
