Frequently Asked Questions
What should I wear?
Expect cold temperatures and possibly snow. Watch the weather online before the walk. Layers of clothing are good since you will certainly warm up during a long walk. Gloves, a warm, ear-covering hat, sunglasses for wind protection and a water/snow repellent jacket (preferably with a hood) are all good choices.
Footwear is really important. If there is snow or rain, you need to have water-proof boots or shoes. Gloves and a scarf are a good idea also. After all, it is a February WALK in Canada. Happy Walking!

2km should take 30-45 minutes
