The date and registration information for this event will be published in the Dufferin Hi-Land Views newsletter, on the Challenge Hikes page (link) of the Dufferin Hi-Land website and in the Blazes section of the Bruce Trail Magazine when available and by member e-blast.

Pink Rose Badge

The Pink Rose Badge is awarded to those hikers who complete the Dufferin Hi-Land section (56.3 km) either through a series of hikes organized by Dufferin Hi-Land or other Bruce Trail Clubs or through their own series of self-scheduled hikes.

Winter End-to-End Badge

The Winter End-to-End Badge is awarded to those hikers who complete a series of 4 organized snowshoe (or, some years, icers) hikes – two daytime and two moonlight. The Hike Leaders will provide the Winter Badge to those who complete the four hikes. The cost is $10 per badge for Members and $15 for Non-members. The dates and full information for these events will be published in the Dufferin Hi-Land Views newsletter, by member e-blast, on the General Hikes page (link) of the Dufferin Hi-Land website and in the Blazes section of the Bruce Trail Magazine when available. Pre-registration is required.

NOTE: These 4 hikes are not technically a full End-to-End of the Dufferin Hi-Land section and do not qualify as completion of the section for purposes of qualifying for other Dufferin Hi-Land or Bruce Trail Conservancy badges.

Side Trail Badge

The Side Trail Badge is awarded to those hikers who complete all of the blue-blazed Side Trails of the Dufferin Hi-Land section, either by participating in an organized series of Side Trail hikes (see General Hike listings for currently available series, beginning in April 2017) or by arranging one’s own hikes and submitting a log to document completion of all Side Trails. The cost of the badge is $10 per badge for Members and $15 for Non-members, payable in cash to the hike leader, if participating in an organized hike. 

Full details, including suggested hikes to meet the badge requirements are found on the Side Trails Badge page under the Hike menu.
