"The University of Toronto Outing Club (UTOC) is a not-for-profit, non university-affiliated organization founded in 1957 by U of T students. It is located directly on the Bruce Trail, at the base of Metcalfe Rock, a gem on the escarpment (a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve) boasting the province's best rock-climbing routes, explorable fissures and caves, and unbeatable views over Grey County. The Cabin is used to host a variety of club events, trips, and excursion weekends. Popular activities at the cabin include cross-country skiing on the over 45km of trails leading right away from the cabin's doorstep, mountain biking, hiking, caving, rock climbing, swimming, and canoeing.
The cabin has no electricity, instead being lit by propane lamps, and heated by a propane furnace and a wood-burning oven, for that extra cozy feel. It also has no running water - instead we get our water from a stream we have deeded access to, that [they] have tapped into directly from the depths of Metcalfe Rock." - UTOC Website
