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.

Ontario Becoming Best Trail Destination Worldwide
If you are planning your summer hiking excursion, you may want to add Ontario to your short list. Over the past couple years, Ontario has become one of the leading trail destinations worldwide. If you search trail information on Twitter
, chances are, you’ll run across a number of trail-related Twitterites in Ontario. In general, Ontario provides a robust outdoor recreation scene with trails as one of their main focuses. Although hiking and backpacking trails
make up the lion’s share of their trail system, bike trails
are also beginning to pop up throughout the province. Whereas certain cities such as Amsterdam, Portland, Denver and Minneapolis are well known for biking and other areas such as Colorado, California and British Columbia are noted for hiking, Ontario is quickly and quietly becoming Trail Central by providing great trail
opportunities including biking trails,hiking trails
and backpacking trails. What sets Ontario apart among the various worldwide trail opportunities is their trail infrastructure and trail support system such as that provided by organizations such as Ontario Trails Council
