While there are always obstacles to overcome in an End-to-End event, weather was not one of them this year. Over two consecutive weekends in September, we had bright skies and warm temps for our biennial event. Forty-five intrepid hikers, hailing from all over southern Ontario and as far away as New York State, completed the Beaver Valley End-to-End.

Hikers enjoyed the trail with many commenting on the beautiful views. And what's a hike without snacks? There were many, many thank-yous for the delicious snacks provided at the checkpoints. Kudos to our checkpoint volunteers, who outdid themselves with home-baked treats! Yum! Despite some challenging terrain and mud, everyone carried on with only some minor grumbles. Our hikers really earned their event badges!

Congratulations to all participating hikers!
