About the Event
"Since time immemorial the Anishinaabek people have understood our connection to and dependence on our Mother Earth. Nature provides food, medicine, and essentials for everyday life. Take a walk through the mixed forests, diverse wetlands, and rocky bluffs of our traditional territory. Discover the ancient knowledge the land has to offer. Your Anishinaabe guide will provide history and insights into a variety of plants, wildlife, and cultural traditions." Trail difficulty is easy to moderate depending on fitness level and weather conditions (i.e. rain can make some sections slippery). Some incline areas along the trail. No technical areas. Hiking poles are recommended for balance. The final portion of the hike will be fairly steep going down towards the parking lot. Poles will come in handy for this section in particular. Depending on weather, the field crossing section of this hike can cause wet footwear. Meet in Cape Croker Park - at the Bruce Trail Parking area. Bring a lunch to enjoy in the park afterwards.
