Anyone who has hiked to Pinnacle Point knows that it's all uphill...and then downhill - with a lot of turns, stumps, muddy spots and tree roots along with way.
We started out at dusk and by the time we got about 10 minutes into the trail, darkness set in.
Always be prepared.
There are no mosquitoes to be found this time of year!
Turn around if you get on the wrong trail - and speak up if you notice Troop is going in the wrong direction (a compass may have been handy but our trusted cell phone map provided the trail coordinates)
Flashlights should be pointed at the ground.
A long sturdy stick makes a good prop when climbing steep hills.
Youth are in better shape then Scouters.
Trail Safety Info:
Hiking along the Bruce Trail is, for the most part, neither dangerous nor difficult. A few sections of the Trail, particularly towards its northern end, are wild, rocky and remote, and additional preparations are required. But most of the Trail can be enjoyed by any moderately active, healthy person.
