You talked! We listened! As a Canadian campaign we want you to feel secure about donating in Canadian dollar currency instead of US currency. Visit our new campaign donation page at https://www.tilt.com/tilts/guelph-to-goderich-rail-trail. We have moved our campaign over to a great crowdfunding website called Tilt. Through this we are able to not only have no fees on donations we earn but when you send a donation using a Visa Debit or Mastercard Debit there are no fees at all as opposed to other platforms which can take up to 10% in site fees and credit card fees! Meaning every cent goes to this great initiative. Thank you for understanding and sharing your concerns, and thank you for donating. You can look below for our donation perks.
Each trail segment and community can benefit directly from this $60,000 fundraising campaign. We’ve had a tremendous amount of support in the past from communities that are touched by the G2G Rail Trail experience. The 127 km route is made up of the amazing Kissing Bridge Trailway, Perth Harvest Pathway and the Lake Huron Route.
G2G Crowdfunding Campaign Info:
The Guelph to Goderich Rail Trail surrounds cyclists and hikers with the richness of Ontario’s pastoral landscape and rural heritage. Through hushed forest groves and rolling Mennonite farmland, across river valleys and wetlands, past 13 villages and towns, to the sunset horizon of one of the world’s Great Lakes, visitors of all fitness and skill levels can enjoy any part of the G2G’s 127-km length through four counties. Completion of the G2G Rail Trail opens Ontario’s pastoral heartland to the global fitness and recreation phenomena of backpacking and cycle tourism. The G2G helps rural Ontarians share their countryside and hospitality with the world.

Hi Hikers – http://www.epicadventures.ca/
Putting together another Hike Club outing. Looking at going this Saturday, February 7 at 12 noon.
Destination will again be in the Baldspot Trail System, however we will be doing a different loop. Will be starting at the MNR and proceeding up to do the Widowmaker.
This trek will be fairly short 3-4 km, but I imagine we will have to break trail on the Widowmaker, so this will slow down the pace. We may skip into one of the already packed side trails, this depends on how much effort we use to break the Widowmaker.
Remember to pack snacks, fluids and snowshoes. Also dress accordingly for weather.
Please advise if you will be attending or not.

On Sunday October 21st, 2012 members of the Nor’Wester Trail Club and friends hiked through Pigeon River Provincial Park at the Canada / US border to High Falls. This was an easy / moderate hike, however, if you aren’t good with heights, parts of the trail can get intimidating! Along the way, hikers stopped to view the only 2 remaining structures from an old “resort” that lie on the shore of the Pigeon River. This video was shot, compiled and edited by Club Member Steve Johnston of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Thanks Steve!
