Full description
On this adventure, you will hike “The Crack”- a famous 4-hour, 7km roundtrip trek ascending huge pink, grey and white granite/quartz rock formations. This hike takes its name from the dramatic, deep crevasse that forms walls on the sides of the trail towards the end of the hike. After getting through the crack, you arrive at an unforgettable panoramic lookout where several clear blue lakes can be seen framed by Georgian Bay jack pines. On the way, we will also visit the French River Conservation Area, which features an interesting and accessible suspension bridge over the river. PLEASE NOTE: This is not a beginner's hike. In order to summit in a timely manner, we suggest this trip for folks who are experienced in hiking/hiking uphill and comfortable going through a few tight spaces. Due to the rocky terrain, sturdy shoes (ideally hiking boots) are necessary- especially if the weather calls for rain. Itinerary 6:45am – Departure from Christie Station. Note: if your tour is on a Sunday, the subway does not start running until 8 am, shuttle busses run down Yonge Street and Bloor Street, increasing your travel time slightly. 11:00am – Arrival and registration at the park 11:15am – Begin the hike! Followed by time to relax with a beautiful view of the Georgian Bay. This is a good place to have your lunch. 4:30pm – Visit the French River 6:00pm – Dinner together at a local restaurant (not included) 8:45pm – Expected arrival time to Toronto, Christie Subway Station
