40th Annual Hike Ontario Summit

To all Friends of the Trail,

On behalf of Hike Ontario, the Guelph Hiking Trail Club invites you to take part in the 40th Annual Hike Ontario Summit. Join us on the banks of the Speed River for our kick-off Friday pub night, a dynamic Saturday program, and a Sunday of great hikes on our beautiful trails. Take this opportunity to learn about new hiking initiatives, check out the latest equipment, participate in stimulating workshops, share experiences with hikers from different Ontario clubs, and celebrate HO’s 40th birthday!

Mark your calendars! See you in Guelph on Oct 31 – Nov 2!
