BRVTA Winter Hike on the Varna Trails

The two Varna Trails, which can be accessed off the parking lot at the Varna Complex, will be the setting for the hiking that will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The trail location is 1 km west of the village of Varna on Mill Road. 5 km east of Bayfield on Mill Road. Hike is at the Municipality of Bluewater Varna Complex.

The group hike will start at 11 a.m. sharp, so participants are asked to arrive by 10:45 a.m. Depending on the weather, either hiking boots or snowshoes are acceptable footwear. If there is snow, and anyone wishes to try snowshoes, they can rent them from Outside Projects at 6 Main Street North in the village.

There will be a choice of trail, either the Mavis Trail to the Bayfield River, at four kilometers and moderate difficulty, or the Taylor Trail, at just over a kilometer. The Taylor Trail is currently being developed as a mobility trail.

Following the hiking, hot dogs and cider will be served in the Varna Complex. Donations for the food will be welcomed.

There will be displays and information on the newly released Main Bayfield Watershed Plan, the BRVTA, and the newly formed Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy.
