To begin his sabbatical, Rev Mark has embarked on an End-to-End hike of the Bruce Trail. As described below by the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Fund, this is an almost 900km trek, requiring about 30km of hiking per day in order to complete it in 30 days.
The Bruce Trail is Canada’s longest hiking trail, winding along the Niagara Escarpment all the way from Niagara Falls to Tobermory in the Bruce Peninsula. With some careful planning and organization, the ambitious goal of hiking all 890 km of the Bruce Trail can be achieved. The Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC) recognizes “End-to-Enders” with an official end-to-end badge.
It may seem overwhelming, but there are a few options available for those who want to walk the whole Trail from end to end.
It is possible to complete the Trail in one go, in as little as 30 to 60 days. This requires a good level of physical ability, as it means hiking for around 4 to 8 hours, or an average of between 15 and 30 km, per day. It will also require a lot of advance planning to organize places to stay and meals.
Sending Mark blessings and prayers as he makes his way up the trail, to his final destination - Tobermory!
