Meet at 8 a.m. at the Wilderness Centre for this 10 hr., 25 km outing with 1000m cumulative elevation gain. This is an arduous hike for fit participants only. In case of bad weather the trip may be changed , so pre-registration is required – email

For all activities: dress for the weather, wear proper footwear, bring lunch or snacks, plenty of water, bug spray and sun protection. No pets please on SWI guided nature walks & hikes unless noted otherwise. A minimum donation of $5 –10 is appreciated for the programs to help with the Institute’s ongoing activities.
