Leisurely / Moderate / Fast

2 hrs Approx.
Easy / Moderate / Challenging
Typical Bruce Trail, rocks, roots, and some smooth patches seasoned with a lot of ups and downs.
TYPE OF HIKE:
There-and-back with a short loop around Fisher’s Pond in the middle.
We’ll be surrounded by an undulating forest featuring both tree species from the North Carolinian Forest Zone and the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Basin. I know what shag hickory looks like and maybe someone in the group will point out butternut to us.
Yes. A Must. Leaders appreciate early registration and at least 24 hours before the event.
• 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.
2 weeks before the hike. Up to 16 participants are welcome to join the event
WHAT TO BRING
• Wear supportive hiking boots with good tread.
• Bring hiking poles.
• Bring water.
• Bring a small flashlight just in case. (If you cover over the lens with a piece with red cellophane held in place with an elastic band, your night vision will be held in place.) DON’T PANIC. THIS IS JUST A SAFETY PROVISION. I CAN ALWAYS ADJUST THE HIKE TO MAKE IT A LITTLE SHORTER, IF NECESSARY.
The Royal Coachmen patio on Dundas in Waterdown.
