REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Yes. A Must.  Leaders appreciate early registration and at least 24 hours before the event.

CANCELLATION

   If your plans change, please self-cancel as soon as possible so that other HOC members may take your spot.

   The club may cancel due to bad weather that may impact the safety of participants or due to low attendance.

REGISTRATION OPENS

WHAT TO BRING

If there is good snow in the fields this will be a snowshoe event: Poles are recommended, but not necessary.

If all the snow is gone by Saturday, 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:

   Wear supportive hiking boots with good tread. Hiking poles are recommended but not required.

   Dress in layers according to weather

   Carry snacks and water

IMPORTANT COVID REMINDERS

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.

GUIDING NOTES:

HIKE PACE - Leisure: 3 km/hr. or less. Moderate: 3-4 km/hr. or Fast: 4-5km/hr. All paces are average and depending on the terrain.

TERRAIN - Easy: mostly flat and usually good footing (i.e. rail trails, Confederation Park, Bay Front Park), Moderate: some hills and/or poor footing (Bruce Trail, Dundas Valley, etc.) and Challenging: steep hills and strenuous footing (Bruce Trail, some trails in Short Hills, Dundas Valley and Red Hill Valley).
