Bruce Trail Hike – Day 5

Well, day 5 on the trail was fabulous. Beautiful day, awesome people, and great scenery. There were only two pitfalls to yesterday. I ran out of water and the coyote’s were extremely noisy last night. Many thanks to the couple I met on the top of old baldy and to Mike McCormack who I met way past old baldy. They both supplied me with water as water was scarce indeed out here.

I also had the pleasure of meeting up with a Mennonite family who were watering their horses. Very nice people. 🙂

The major highlights for the day were Metcalf rock and old baldy. These are both musts to s see.

Wildlife is sparse up here. I did hear a bear in the distance, nothing to worry about, and those pesky coyote’s were yelping all around my camp last night. Needless to say, I am tired and slow this morning but will be in Eugenia soon for a nice swim. 🙂

My name is Tom Thayer and I love hiking and have built this site to record my many hikes and adventures. I am currently a trail captain for the Bruce Trail Conservatory and I am very glad I can give back some of what the Bruce has given me. I also sit on the board for the Dufferin Bruce Trail Club and was recently awarded the Volunteer of the Year award by the Bruce Trail Conservancy for my work on the developing their new Hike Schedule.

I have many hobbies other than hiking, such as music, drones, skiing, robotics, computers, all kinds of sports, etc….

I really hope you enjoy this site and feel free to drop me a line if you have anything you wish to add or discuss about the site, or just plain say hello.
