Dufferin Hi-Land Unveils New Side Trail Badge
Dufferin Hi-Land Bruce Trail Club is pleased to introduce a new badge which hikers can earn by hiking all of the blue-blazed Side Trails of our section and submitting a log, along with a $5 payment. There are two easy ways to accomplish this. First of all, consider joining our Side to Side series of 7 hikes, beginning April 9 (see hike listings in this newsletter for details). These hikes are relatively short and suitably paced for beginners and families, as well as experienced hikers. Or, if do-it-yourself is more your style, suggested routes to cover all of the side trails are posted on the Badges page of this website.
Take A Hike for Headwaters Health Care Centre
The first annual Take a Hike for Headwaters, Saturday, June 3, 2017, provides participants with the choice of three richly rewarding routes along the beautiful and rolling trails of the Dufferin-Hi-land section of the Bruce Trail – The Challenge (approx. 3 hours), The Intermediate (approx. 2 hours) and The Family (approx. 1 hour) – and incorporates sections of private land opened up for this inaugural fundraising event. The goal of this hiking event is to raise funds to purchase vital medical equipment for Headwaters Health Care Centre, the hospital serving the residents of the Dufferin-Caledon region.
