Hike Schedule for September

New hikers are welcome to join the Club’s organized hikes. If you need help in how to get to the start of hike or for any other information regarding the hike, feel free to contact the hike leader.

Beyond the Beaver Valley Hikes

We’re heading away on the Bruce Trail! Check for the triple stars *** on our fall hiking schedule for hikes that will take us out and about to some of the other Bruce Trail clubs. For those of you who want a bit of a challenge, some of these hikes are for you!

Join us on the Caledon Hills section of the Bruce Trail to hike the whole section (End-to-End) in a series of five beautiful fall outings. Those of us who live in the vicinity of Meaford will carpool to Caledon while others are welcome to join us at the Caledon meeting places. Just let us know so we can time our meeting! Join us on any or all of our hikes; you’re sure to see great fall colours in October and lovely vistas in November.

Consider taking on the Beaver Bites Side Trail Hikes this fall!

See October Hikes for more great fall hikes.
