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 Friday, 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, so you will need to bring your traction devices for your boots (icers, yak-trax etc.)


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

  Bring water and snacks. 

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.
