Description

This hike is primarily a there-and-back hike. We will be starting near the iconic Old Baldy. The Trail takes us along the edge of the Escarpment with a number of views across the Valley. We will walk on the main Trail as far as McCluskey's Rock. After experiencing being "between a rock and a hard place", we will return on the main Trail and then take the Ken Young side Trail back.

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.
