Bruce Trail Essay

699 words - 3 pages

Bruce Trail Hike

One of Canada’s hidden gems and one of it’s most beautiful areas to explore; The Bruce Trail. This is a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment and is Canada's oldest and longest marked footpath. The trail runs throughout southern and central Ontario. It starts in the Niagara Escarpment of Queenston and ends in the northern part of Ontario, in Tobermory. It preserves over 8,000 acres of irreplaceable Niagara Escarpment landscape, 885 kilometres in length, and 400 kilometres of side trails. The trail is marked with white and blue rectangular blazes (painted lines). The white blazes indicate information and direction on the main trail, where the blue blazes indicate the same thought for the side trails. These can be found on trees, fence posts, and rocks.
The land was always there for people to go upon, although the trail was official open in 1967 and is Canada’s original long-distance hiking trail.

The bright and warm colours brings the comfort and stress free mood to the mind. The wonderful backsplash of the hills and the mountains adds to the scenery as a hollywood movie. As well as the idea of fall with cozy sweaters, hot drinks, and the diversity of colours, is a great time to relax. Plus doing this by considering it as an exercise, is very much a bonus.
The highlights throughout the day was definitely meeting Greg, as he is very much an inspiration, the relaxing scenery, and not falling although tripping a couple times, which was fun to laugh at afterwards. Now something I discovered about myself was that, I was very concerning for my fellow classmates not to fall/trip. The reason for saying this, is that if one person fell or held on to my bag, I would also fall and probably bring down a couple with me; basically a domino effect. Throughout the day, what I discovered about everyone is being that, everyone tried to help each other, especially going down hill by holding their arms/hands. Which showed trust within our class that I appreciate. One hardship that I endured was going up hill after we ate lunch. As a class, we had a pot luck lunch. Everyone had brought food and there was so many options, that you wanted to try everything. After being full from lunch we then had to go up multiple hills that gave me cramps and made me out of breath for some part. Now some surprises that occurred on that day was, seeing people that live on the trail and talking to them, seeing people that were tagging fish for research purposes, and climbing up a “cliff” like hill instead of walking on the actually trail, feeling as if I was in the army or such by crawling up.

Therefore, an overall conclusion that I learned from this trip was appreciating the the time, the people, and possessions you have in your life. It gave myself time to think of how you are only young for so long and to have fun but appropriately. I as well learned that being grateful for the wonderful people in my life, such as my family and friends and the possessions I have and that are given to me. Thus, I would defiantly take more hikes because of this experience and channel more of my inner relaxation self.
