Hey, I'm thinking of doing some hiking along the Bruce trail from the Dundas area north. I'm actually going to start from Brantford, taking the rail trail to get to the Bruce Trail and then hike along the BT heading north as far as I can, I have about 5 days I'm planning on spending.
I used to live in Hamilton and have done extensive biking along the BT in the Hamilton/Ancaster/Dundas areas but am unfamiliar with anything north of there.
I imagine it would be a lot more scenic in the summer but I'm planning on my trip being first few days of April. Although I'm not stuck on the area, this will be my first solo hike and hang and after trying to decide on a good place to go, I figured why not right here at home? Sort of a test run if you will. This way if anything happens, my wife is only a short drive away and can come bail me out.
Since I don't believe they allow camping just anywhere along the BT, I'll be doing some stealth hanging. I'm really hoping someone here has done both (hike & hang in this area) and can offer any tips or suggestions; water spots, anything to watch out for (coyotes are probably the main issue right now). I've been checking out the bruce trail website and will most likely download their maps.
