Sun. Feb. 28 – Bronte Creek Provincial Park Snowshoe – Day use side

Start Time:  10:00 a.m.     Finish 12 p.m.

Leaders: Sue & Frank Elias     s-elias@cogeco.ca 

Meeting Location: Bronte Provincial Park Parking Lot A.  This is the Day use side off of Burloak, not the camping side. 

Distance:  approx. 4-5 km. 

Terrain: Basically level terrain. Snow covered paths and open snow covered fields

Pace:  Slow: 3 km per hour as we hope to be walking in the snow covered fields as much as possible

Description: Park at Parking lot A, then we will meet at the picnic tables near the washroom building (closed for the season).  We will be walking through the fields to get to the Lookout Ravine Trail headed to the Spruce Lane Farmhouse. Head back to Parking Lot A via the forest by the Barrier Free Trail.

Bring your traction devices for your boots (icers, yak-trax etc).  If there is good snow in the fields this will be a snowshoe event.  If all the snow is gone by Sunday, we will make this a hike on the trails but the trails will still be hard packed snow/ice so you will need something for traction.

Notes:

1. There is a fee of $18 to enter Bronte Provincial Park.

2.  Poles are recommended, but not necessary. We will be walking through a couple of ditches and other uneven ground to get to some of the fields.  Bring water and snacks if needed.  Please use washrooms before arriving.  

3. The Children’s Farm and the Spruce Lane Farmhouse heated washrooms were open on the previous weekend so we assume they will be open for our trip. 

The club’s Covid-19 Safety Guidelines will be observed.  Masks at the start and social distancing.  The park requires people to wear masks if using the washrooms.
