    HIKING THE NIAGARA RIVER

    PART 4 OF 4


    Date and Time: Sun., Oct. 4.  Meet at 8:30 for an 8:45 start. Note that this is one hour later than our normal meeting time.

    Covid prep: Arrive with only one person per car (i.e. the driver) and bring a mask. If a car owner has to share his or her vehicle for convoy purposes, the passenger will be in the rear seat farthest from the driver. Both driver and passenger will wear masks.

    Meeting Place: The historical Fort Erie, called Old Fort Erie on the map. Here's how to get there: 1) Take the QEW east almost all the way to Fort Erie; 2) As you approach the outskirts look for the exit for Sunset Rd.; 3) Turn right on Sunset Rd. and follow it south to Gilmore which is the first turn left; 4) Turn left on Gilmore and take it straight through town to the Niagara Pkwy. at the river's edge; 5) Turn right on Niagara Pkwy. and follow the river to the Peace Bridge connecting Canada to the U.S.A.; 6) Pass under the bridge and keep following the river till you come to Old Fort Erie on your right. Look for my bright red Honda in the parking lot. 

    The Route and the Misterioso: We'll convoy north along the pkwy. for 12 km to the point that we reached on the last hike and hike back to Old Fort Erie. As for the misterioso, what does it look like upriver from the falls? Does anyone actually go there?  Doesn't everyone just drive to the falls and then go back to Burlington or Toronto? 

    Hike details: We'll hike for about 4-5 kmph. for 12 km. The surface is dead flat and as smooth as a baby's bum. 

    Bring: Water, a snack, and clothing appropriate for the weather of the day. Hiking boots or running shoes are acceptable. 

    Apres-hike Social: Join us at Betty's restaurant in Chippawa for the best piece of lemon meringue pie you've ever had.

    Note: As usual, the club’s COVID-19 Safety Guidelines will be observed.
