Rattlesnake Traverse and MEC Grand Opening

Rattlesnake Traverse and MEC Grand Opening

On April 14th, join the Active Days community on a Traverse from Rattlesnake Point to Crawford Lake and help us celebrate the grand opening of MEC’s new store at 300 Queen West!

The Bruce Trail is the one of the longest and oldest marked trails in Canada and follows the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. Rattlesnake Point is one of the many conservation areas that the Bruce Trail winds its way through. With towering limestone cliffs, Rattlesnake Point offers some of the most inspiring scenic views at one of the 5 breathtaking lookouts. Travel from Rattlesnake to Crawford Lake on a 14km trail that takes you along the edge of limestone cliffs, through the Lowville Valley, and Nassagaweya Canyon.
