Registration

Please Register - Only REGISTRANTS are permitted to participate in this event.

If you have registered but can't attend, log in, click on "Already registered", then cancel.
REMINDER: A mask and hand sanitizer are required.

At this time, we are accepting "guest" registrations. Please see the TBN website for instructions on how to register as a guest.

Registration will be open 6 days before the event.  We will open the site for registrations the Monday morning before the hike at 9.30 am. I realize this can be a pain but it will help prevent people from registering for all future hikes.  It will be just like the rides that we have been doing this season.

The hike is not difficult but there are several hills. Depending on trail conditions and weather, poles and icers may be recommended. As well as being scenic, the hike features a number of landmarks, including the former Eaton summer home on Lake Seneca and an Augustinian monastery on land once owned by Sir Henry Pellat, who built and lived in Casa Loma. The barn on the former Pellat estate north of King City is still standing and was designed by E.J. Lennox, the man who designed Casa Loma.
