The annual Iroquoia Club End to End consists of four hikes over two weekends and will take place on October 19, 20 and October 26, 27, 2019. The section is approximately 122.5 km. long and each hike averages 30 km.  This is a challenging but richly rewarding series of hikes.

FAQs

1) How much does it cost?

BTC members: $50 for all 4 hikes

Non-members: $60 for all 4 hikes

Per hike: $15

The fee covers the cost of transportation, entry to Mount Nemo Conservation Area for two days, water, snacks, and a Waterfall badge for those who complete all four hikes.

2) How does the event work?

Hikers will arrive in the morning and park at the designated meeting location (Mount Nemo on the first weekend, Mohawk Ice Centre on the second).  We ask that you arrive at least 30 minutes early to check in with the event volunteers.  Event buses will leave promptly at 7:30 am to take hikers to the starting point.  Hikers then follow the trail back to their vehicles.  

These are self-guided hikes. You simply follow the white blazes and other hikers in the event. There will be a "Sweep" who will be identifiable.  Do not fall behind the Sweep.  If leaving the trail for a "comfort" stop, please let another hiker and/or the Sweep know.  Should you be unable to complete the day's hike you must stop ONLY at a checkpoint where a volunteer will take you back to your vehicle.  No dropouts between checkpoints. 

3) What can I bring into the event?

There are checkpoints along the way where you can refill a water bottle and get a snack but we suggest you carry the following items in your pack: 

  • Food and water

  • Whistle

  • Small personal first aid kit

  • Extra socks

  • Rain gear

  • Maps for the day’s hike

  • Flashlight, Cell phone and emergency numbers (of the organizers and sweeps)

  • A card containing your medical information (i.e. Doctor and phone number, medications you may be taking, an emergency contact number.)

  • Foil emergency blanket

4) How long will the hikes take?

Hikes may take 5-7 hours each day, depending on your hiking experience. Wear comfortable footwear as the hike covers some very rough and hilly terrain. Hiking poles are a good idea.  The hike takes place 'rain or shine' - be prepared with appropriate clothing.

5) Can I bring my dog?

No dogs, please.

6) What's the refund policy?

There are no refunds. The event takes place 'rain or shine'.

7) How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Organizer

Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club

Beginning in the south, the Iroquoia Section of the Bruce Trail hugs the ancient shoreline of Lake Iroquoia, following the winding path of the Niagara Escarpment, and forming a horseshoe around the western end of Lake Ontario. While the Trail passes through a densely populated area (the City of Hamilton), for the most part the hiker will be walking on a woodland path with only occasional glimpses of the surrounding urban sprawl. Our Trail and its surrounding natural areas are home to many species of bird, plants and animals.

The Iroquoia Section has an abundance of waterfalls, splashing their way over the Escarpment: Tiffany, Sherman, Webster’s, Tew, and Borer’s. Most of these waterfalls can be seen in a full day of hiking across the Dundas Valley. Largely the Iroquoia Trails cross parkland and conservation areas, with some parts of our Trail crossing private lands with special landowner permission. Without the goodwill and cooperation of the Landowners, the Bruce Trail could not exist. Please respect the lands you walk on!
