 Rattlesnake Point Guided Group Hike

EVENT DETAILS

Let's spend a day in the fabulous Ontario wilderness, and enjoy a guided autumn hike in the company of other outdoor enthusiasts from all over the GA!

Rattlesnake Point has some excellent hiking trails and the walk along the edge of the escarpment is peaceful and not too challenging. The views are really amazing and add to the enjoyment of the outing. At the beginning of the trail, at the southern most point of Rattlesnake Point, there is a staircase that allows one to climb down to the base of the escarpment.

Further highlights of this scenic adventure are the Bruce Trail, Crawford Lake and the 15th-century Native-American village near the lake.

Our CHARTER BUS will shuttle us from Toronto’s Dufferin TTC Station to this hiking site, located about 70 Km from the city. Length: 15 Km
