In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday the Caledon Hills Bruce Trail Club is offering the Canada 150 Historical Hikes Badge. To receive the Badge participants must complete 5 hikes ranging from 9 to 12 km on their own or with an organized group. To receive the badge you must submit your logged hikes and required photos. This is a great way to experience the Caledon/Mono part of the Bruce Trail and all that it has to offer.
