As many of you know, our Bruce Trail Hiking Group took a bit of a hiatus this past year while one of our members dealt with some health challenges. She is our spiritual guide, and we just couldn’t finish the trail without her. I am happy to report that we recently got back on the trail and finished the Beaver Valley section. We are nearing the end of the road with just a portion of the Sydenham and Peninsula sections to complete; a goal we hope to achieve this summer.
The ideal group size for hiking the Bruce is between 4-5 members, and our group is currently full. We met with some members thinking of starting a new group; we offered tips, shared stories and even led the new group on a hike to show them the ropes. We can accommodate the occasional hiker when one of our regulars is not able to join us. With all the research showing the value of being out in nature, you should really consider hiking at least part of this magnificent trail. We are so fortunate to live right next door to this unique landscape.
