THE CARPOOL LEAVES VAUGHAN METROPOLITAN CENTRE STATION AT 8:45 AM

So, this is my first time leading this hike with the TOC.
However, I've walked through the conservation area once before.
We'll walk on a combination of Oak Ridges, Bruce & Conservation Area Trails.

Please bring a lunch and at least 1-2 Litres of water. We'll find a place to stop for lunch along the trail.

If you cannot walk the entire distance please do not sign up for this hike.

    EVENT STATS
  • Level: Moderate

  • Terrain: Primarily single track dirt trails, with a few rocky sections
  • Trail vs Road: 11 km vs 0 km

DRIVERS, WHEN YOU SIGN UP, PLEASE ANSWER THE CARPOOL QUESTION REGARDING THE AMOUNT OF PASSENGERS YOU CAN TAKE IN YOUR CAR!!!

For those of you choosing to meet at the event location, instead of the carpool, please ensure that you come on time

I’ve set the maximum event count at 1 as I don’t want to add anyone to the event until I have enough carpool drivers to accommodate passengers.
I will try accommodate up to 25 people.
