What you'll do

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” - Eleanor Roosevelt ​We'll meet at the entrance of the trail and start with brief introductions, a review of the route, safety briefing - and pause to set an intention for the hike. Our trek begins on a wide relatively flat trail, then up along short climb to the crossroads. The trail delves deeper into the forest as it winds its way along the ridge until we reach the deck overlooking the Georgian Peaks Ski Club, showcasing panoramic views of Georgian Bay. On the deck facing our big blue bay, I'll lead a beginner-friendly yoga session* to connect our mind, body and spirit with the land and the lake (AKA Spirit Lake by Ojibway Indians). Afterwards, we'll have time to relax and enjoy the scenery at the summit, spending approximately 1 hour at the lookout. Then we'll continue our hike and loop back through the forest to our car. Throughout the hike, we'll take water breaks and pause for mindful moments... forest bathing. You'll leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated - powered by the beauty of nature.

Where you'll be

The Loree Forest was officially renamed as the Len Gertler Memorial Loree Forest by the Niagara Escarpment Commission. The late Len Gertler was commissioned to study the Niagara Escarpment and created a legendary report which led to the creation of the Niagara Escarpment Planning and Development Act and the Niagara Escarpment Plan - the first environmental land use plan in Canada! Len Gertler is considered Canada’s guru of the environment!
