Hike Ontario is extremely pleased to partner with the Hike Haliburton Festival for our 2017 Summit & Annual General Meeting.
The Hike Haliburton Festival will have over 2,000 people participate in over 90 guided hikes throughout the beautiful Haliburton Highlands. Hikers of all ages and abilities will come from all over Ontario – and beyond – to take in the wonder of the Haliburton Highlands from September 21st-24th.
The Festival goes beyond just 'traditional hiking'; heavily integrating the arts, culture, heritage and foodie experiences to truly showcase the area. There are lots of great events happening throughout the Festival as well, which anyone can attend!
On Saturday, September 23 at 8:30 AM, Hike Ontario will be holding our Annual General Meeting, followed by several presentations and workshops throughout the day at the Fleming College - Haliburton School of Art + Design, including:
