Hike in the Madawaska Highlands: Griffith Uplands Trail October 29th
Get ready for an exhilarating adventure! Join us for an adrenaline-pumping hike on Sunday, October 29 at 11:00am, at the breathtaking Griffith Uplands Trail. Picture this: an adrenaline-fueled trek near the charming town of Griffith that will leave you in awe!
Embark on a journey that promises 8.4 kilometers of pure excitement, offering both a challenge and a thrill. With an average completion time of 2.5 hours, this trail will keep your heart racing as you conquer its moderately difficult terrain and conquer elevations that will take your breath away. There is significant elevation and challenging sections of the trail and therefore it may not be suitable for beginner hikers. We ask all participants to dress for the weather. Rocks may be slippery so come prepared. Pack some snacks and of course make sure to bring at least one bottle of water, we suggest bringing two just to be on the safe side.
The meeting point is at 11:00 am at the Griffith Uplands Trailhead which can be found at the following google maps link: https://maps.app.goo.gl/fDY81XAeyfYRi5u3A. There is room for parking at the trailhead and parking on the side of the road is also an option as it is not a very busy road. We ask participants to plan to arrive 10-15 early so that we can begin the hike right at 11:00 am. If you are coming from Ottawa, it is about an 1.5-2 hour drive and it may be possible to arrange carpooling from the city. Please let us know in your registration email if you require transportation. We cannot guarantee transportation, but we will do our best to accommodate everyone. Please note there is no bathroom facilities at the trailhead itself but there are some at the “Griffith Picnic Spot” (https://maps.app.goo.gl/XMP3QBUDAySAKd647 ) which you will pass by on your way to the trail and is only about 5 minutes away.
We expect our expedition to take around 3-3.5 hours, granting us ample time to embrace the wilderness and immerse ourselves in the scenic wonder that the Griffith Uplands Trail generously provides. Let’s seize the day and soak in the awe-inspiring vistas this trail has in store for us. Unleash your inner adventurer and let’s make this hike an unforgettable escapade! Rally to the call of the wild, and let’s conquer those trails together!
