    The approximate distance for this hike is 18.7km (~6h15min based on our typical pace).

    Several of us are staying at Hope Bay very close to the trail, which is approximately half way along our route--ideal for a drop-out or start location for those who won't be hiking the whole distance.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    A bunch of folks are staying at the Cedarholme B&B and Cottages (108 Beech St, Hope Bay, 519-534-3705), or in the Hope Bay Campground nearby.

    This was a beautiful, but technical hike--particularly the first half of the day. Lots of tricky footing, rocks, ladders and climbs. The afternoon afforded beautiful views across the bay.

      Current date/time is Wed Nov 22, 2017 2:22 am
