Participants meet at South End Canadian Tire for 730am to meet the Keepers of the Wild vehicle and guide(s). The staff will collect everyone’s ( pre filled out and signed “Release of Liability Agreements & Assumption of Risk Waivers” which are mandatory to participate in all our activities). If anyone hasn't paid payments will also be collected, however participants must try to book through the website if they can.
By 800 am all participants should be ready (coffee etc.. in hand ready to go ). We depart and everyone follows in caravan (in their own personal vehicles) to Killarney following the "Keepers of the Wild" vehicle. We travel to Bell Lake landing ( be advised road off hwy 535 into bell lake is a little rough with a few pot holes something to consider if you drive a car )... Ride takes us about 50-60 minutes to arrive.
Once at the parking area participants will be responsible for purchasing a vehicle pass for each respective vehicle at a cost of $15.50 ea. (If people car pool only one pass needs to be purchased) Available at a parks building beside the parking area. Once participants are ready everyone will assist with kayaks and equipment to help bring them to the nearby boat launch area. Kayaks and gear must be walked down approx: 100m to the water.
We depart following the guide from the landing to the trailhead about 3km of kayaking to get there.
We secure our gear at the landing at the start of the trailhead and we prepare to hike. Once ready everyone begins the leisurely fun hike (4.5 km one way on a nice trail to the top of the peaks). Trail is nicely maintain and walking is pretty nice but a bit rugged when we start to climb the elevations.
We will take breaks along the trail and keep the group together as much as possible. Once we arrive at the peak we will relax and have lunch. Participants will be free to roam nearby, take pictures, socialize and take in the breathe taking views.
Once we are done we will make our way back (4.5km) back to the kayaks and then 3km back to the Bell Lake landing. Once at the landing participants will assist in loading the kayaks and equipment and all equipment will be quickly checked and turned back inn. Once finished participants will be free to leave on their own time to return back to Sudbury or they can follow the "Keepers of the Wild" vehicle back to Sudbury.
Great way to get outdoors and get some exercise, social networking, fun, and adventure! Grab some friends and come on out to see the highest peak and view point in Killarney Provincial park. Guide and equipment provided...Any questions please contact us !
