FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                     DATE OF ISSUE: August 17, 2012

Volunteer trail group takes over popular Spirit Trail

Super-Natural Hike at South Huron Trail in Exeter

Spooky hike features characters from local history, offers nature message

The Spirit Trail Super-Natural Hike is back by popular demand and returns to the South Huron Trail in Exeter for the third straight year. The volunteer community group Friends of the South Huron Trail is taking over the event’s organization this year.

The trail group will host the popular historical hike with an environmental theme on Monday, October 15, 2012, with guided hike at 6:30 p.m. The free moonlit hike starts at MacNaughton Park, Exeter and loops back, via Stirling Bridge, to MacNaughton Park. Hikers are asked to please meet at MacNaughton Park Pavilion. Children must be supervised.

“This annual hike is fun for those walking the trail and also for those who are volunteering,” said Lorne Rideout, Chair of the Spirit Trail Hike. The hike is a little spooky for the youngest children but, otherwise, it is a great event for families, according to the event chairman. “It is a chance to enjoy local history, hear some spooky stories, and find out about how to protect water, soil, and living things in the area.”

The early-evening walk features a family-friendly hike with amateur actors portraying ancestors from local history and delivering a conservation message. For information on the hike visit abca.on.ca

Interested volunteers can help as actors, or with organization, registration, publicity, set-up, script development, costuming, and parking assistance. People are invited give Lorne a call at 519-235-2995 if they are interested in being one of the actors or one of the behind-the-scenes helpers.

The nature hike with an historic theme has been very popular for residents and tourists since the event was held for the first time in 2010.

“People taking part in the hike walked along the South Huron Trail to meet some of the nineteenth-century pioneers of this area and to hear a positive message, told in an entertaining way, about how to take care of our trail, our water, our land, and our plants and animals,” said Jim O’Toole, Chairman of the Friends of the South Huron Trail.
