Hike Leader Training

 Are you one of those members who have ever given thought of giving something back to the Bruce Trail?

Why not become a Hike Leader?

It is not that difficult and we are prepared to help you along by offering a classroom setting and a same day short hike to give you hands on training.  We are pleased to offer Hike Ontario Hike Leader Certification for our members. Hike Ontario has developed standards and training programs for Hike Leaders that are used by community colleges, universities, hiking clubs and outdoor training organizations for course delivery. These Hike Leader course are recommended by Hike Ontario for any individuals and/or groups interested in leading organized hikes and walks in Ontario . They are excellent forums for learning some of the necessary and important tools in leading hikes or walks.

At this time we are not planning to run a Hike Leader Training Class. You may want to check with other Bruce Trail Clubs or Hike Ontario to find out where these classes are available.

Hiker Initiation Programme

The Iroquoia Bruce trail Club offers a Hiker Initiation class for those people who would like to know more about hiking the beautiful trails of Southern Ontario. You do not need to be a member.  It starts with a classroom session where experienced hike leaders will teach the essentials so that you will have a safe and enjoyable hiking experience and also includes a shopping experience at a local outfitter on the same night. The second part will be held on another day, where you will be taken out on a Bruce Trail hike by an one of our Hike Leaders.

Stay tuned for dates.
