Rich Moccia, who spoke to us about the Bruce Trail at our General Meeting back in April, will lead us on a morning hike on the new SPLITROCK NARROWS TRAIL. The Trail Head is about an hour’s drive from Guelph, just north of Orangeville. The hike itself is a walk of about 2.5 kilometres. It is a very interesting mix of geological formations and history, open meadows, a nice forested area, and a circle hike back to your car
Splitrock is a property acquired a few years ago by the Bruce Trail Conservancy, and will be a hiking trail in perpetuity. It is located in the Hockley Valley, and the fall colours will be spectacular!!! We will drive ourselves to the Trail Head, and detailed directions will be provided.
WHAT YOU NEED TO NOTE.
-We will be walking on the Bruce Trail – not a paved trail through the park. The trail is rated “easy” however, there may be tree roots, rocks, steep inclines, etc.
-Everyone needs to wear proper footwear – sturdy running shoes, boots
-If you have a walking stick, please bring it. They are great for assisting with balance.
When Rich spoke to us in April, I recall his enthusiasm for hiking the Bruce Trail. He is happy to lead us on this Hike, and there is no charge involved. I might even put a little lunch in my backpack and enjoy a picnic at the end!
