The trail will feature at least 8 food stations staffed by NSCC Culinary Arts students. They will prepare gourmet local meat, fish, vegetable, cheese and fruits, accompanied by local artisan beverages. This event is for ages 19 and older.
Participants will meet at Mill Falls Shelter, where they will be greeted and provided with a map of the 3km culinary walk, starting on the Mill Falls Trail and continuing on the Beech Grove Trail. The terrain is relatively flat with a few hills, and each tour is expected to take approximately 90 minutes.
To avoid congestion along the trail, groups of ten people will start their walk every ten minutes, commencing at 11 am.
