Thank you Flying Squad! Members of the Flying Squad were out again at Eugenia Falls for more work on the new section of main trail. They spent the morning building two sets of stairs on a steep slope to keep hikers safe.

Congratulations to all our Trail Captains and Trail Workers of the Beaver Valley Bruce Trail Club who as a group are the recipients of this year’s Keith Solomon Award. Our trails are recognized throughout the BTC corridor as some of the best maintained and most beautiful of all. The hours of hard work are so appreciated, our Club thanks you.

The Keith Solomon Award was established to celebrate an individual or group who has made a significant contribution to the improvement or preservation of the Bruce Trail in the Beaver Valley and boy has this group achieved that.

Once the boot as been engraved we will let you all know when it will be on display at the Kimberley General Store and the Ravenna Country Market ready for picture taking opportunities.

A huge shoutout to all of you, our trail and maintenance gang! Thank you.

Director of Membership and Volunteers
