Description

This will be a car shuttle hike, meeting at Hogg's Falls to shuttle to Johnston's Sideroad, then hiking back to Hogg's Falls.  We will be hiking the Sendero Pacifico Friendship Trail.  Members of our club have visited Costa Rica a number of times to connect with the people of the area and assist with building and maintaining their trail.    The hike today may be muddy so be prepared to get dirty:)  Bring water and a snack and dress appropriately for the weather.

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.
    Find Ontario's self-assessment tool here: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/
  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.
