Joint Hike with High Park Ski club.jpg

Toronto Bruce Trail Club (TBTC) and High Park Ski Club (HPSC)
Joint Hike at Devil's Glen Provincial Park.

This is a location common to both clubs. The hike was organized by Stan Gasner of the TBTC and George Lorenz of the HPSC and was attended by 32 hikers who braved the wet conditions.
The hike was a great success and would have been better attended had the weather cooperated as we had 51 registered, several as walk-ons. The general consensus was to repeat the event next year. Cheers Stan
