  • Five Winds Trails - Register by Sun. August 20, 9 p.m.


  • Guest allowed if member is coming and taking responsibility for that person.


We will be camping near our Gravenhurst side trails and will spend a couple of days trailclearing/canoeing with the remainder canoeing/hiking/exploring).  We have a number of portages about 800/800/400 m each way (Brotherson), so packing efficiently and light is essential as we also have to bring in trail clearing equipment and markers, and want to minimize our back and forths on the portages. Food will be independent.  Trail equipment supplied, just bring garden/work gloves.

If you do not have a canoe, but want to come, sign up as there are usually people with canoes looking for partners,  a canoe available if someone can car top it, or else the possibility that  you can rent with another person.

Note:  You must be at the put-in by Friday morning.  If you are coming on your own on Saturday, you will need to be totally self-sufficient,  as well as know how to find where we are located, which is not that easy if you don't have the map skills and unfamiliar with the area as this is not a well-known route.

Meet Location:  At "put-in"  or carpool locations.   More info will be provided to those signed up.

Cost:  Car pooling costs.

Max:  10 people

Organizer:  Wendy O.

Photos from a previous trip:  here.

Registration closes on Sunday, August 25th  at 9 p.m. so people have time to arrange their car pools.  Max 10.
