2016 Peninsula Blue Side Trail Series
We have about 150 km of side trails. Hike them all through 2016 and 2017 and receive our
newest badge. Below there are two
differently formatted schedules available for download.
The first PDF copy has some volunteer hike leaders assigned to specific, upcoming dates that you may wish to
attend. As more hike leaders volunteer to lead this series, updated versions of the first PDF copy will be posted here.
The second PDF copy contains the side trails shown as a convenient series of loops and with it you can chose your own schedule.
Periodically check here for loop hikes with a leader and a view of the new badge. Submit your schedule to PBTC, PO Box 1087, Wiarton, N0H 2T0 when
complete along with $7 (Canada)/$8 (USA) in a stamped, self addressed envelope to receive the badge.
