Official Iroquoia Club End to End

2017 October 14, 15 October 21, 22

The annual Iroquoia Club End to End consists of four hikes over two

weekends and will take place on October 14, 15 and October 21, 22, 2017. The section is approximately 122.5 km. long and each hike averages 30 km. or more with one being 27.2. This is a challenging, but richly rewarding series of hikes. All hikes will start between 7:45 to 8:00 am. at predetermined locations.

A bus will take all participants to the start of the hike. Space is limited to the number of people on the bus. Volunteers will be at “check points” with water and snacks along the way.

The registration fee is $45 ($60 for non-­‐BTC members) for all four hikes, or $15 per day that you wish to hike. The fee covers the cost of transportation, entry to Mount Nemo Conservation Area for two days, snacks and receiving a Waterfall badge for those who complete all four hikes. Hikes will go rain or shine.
