The Ancestor’s Trail is an annual event, based on Richard Dawkins’ book ‘The Ancestor’s Tale’.
This year’s Ancestor’s Trail will take place on Saturday 29th August in Epping Forest and the Lee Valley Country Park.
The trails are of varying length (from 3 to 12 miles), ranging from longer, more challenging hikes to shorter, easier wheelchair-friendly flat-terrain walks. Walkers will be met at specified times at each starting location and guided by marshals back to the origins of life.
Th Canadian hike starts at Erindale Par with the dawn of multicellular life head up the Culham Trail in Mississauga to the current time of prolific Humanity in the park at the end of mostly hiking along the Credit River.
A unique educational experience that maps different lineages of life onto real hiking trails – to provide for a first-hand and participatory education regarding the evolution of life.
