            Leader: Maureen Hills  hillsmaur@gmail.com

            Distance: 9 Km

            Pace: Moderate (3-4 Km/hr)

            Terrain: Moderate

            Hike description: We start at the impressive Gage Park. At the end of the hike you can check out their new greenhouses or explore the park further. Less than half of this urban hike is through pleasant east end neighbourhoods. There are also great views along the escarpment on a gently uphill paved rail trail. No climbing stairs, however we do go down the Kenilworth/Kimberly Drive stairs. We are going to get an early start to avoid the midday heat of July. Bring snacks and water.  Optional Lattes or brunch at local cafe in east end Hamilton.

            Meeting location: Park at the Gage Park parking lot off Lawrence Road (just east of Gage Park Ave South). As you enter the parking lot drive beyond Roselawn Lawn Bowling club and the ball diamond and park in the section to the left of the lot.

                  Sunday July 21.  Los Caminos Misteriosos, Hike #7 (In the Valley of the Shadow of Dundas)  

                  Meeting Time: 9:00 a.m. End: 12:00 noon

                  Location: Dundas Valley

                  Meeting Place: The parking lot behind Morgan Firestone Ice Arena on Jerseyville Rd. in Ancaster. Take Jerseyville Rd. to Martin Rd. just west of the arena. Turn north on Martin Rd. and drive to the very last parking area. Don't go any further than that or you'll drop steeply in the valley. If you need more specific directions,e-mail me at the address given below.

                  Pace: Medium, 3-4 km per hr. with occasional pauses for rest, refreshment, and relief.

                  Terrain: Hard pack clay with lots of hills

                  Hike Description: This is a loop hike through the shaded labyrinthine trails of the upper half of Dundas Valley. With luck, we'll see deer in the woods,  though more likely grazing nonchalantly in the gardens of residents living beside the valley than in the valley itself.

                  Requirements: The group will be limited to the first 20 hikers who register online. Wear boots and clothing suitable for the weather. Bring water and a snack. 

                  Post-Hike Social: An optional pub lunch and/or liquid  refreshment will follow.

                    A note from Gayle: Hello Trailriders, Our annual Fort Erie weekend is scheduled for August 10 and 11. On August 10 we are cycling from Fort Erie to Niagara Falls -- definitely one of my favourites. On Sunday August 11 we are cycling the Friendship Trail from Fort Erie to Port Colbourne. Many of us like to stay over in Fort Erie and make a nice weekend away. We organize a group dinner at a local restaurant. You can come for either day or stay overnight for both days and avoid the QEW. Paul and I have booked accommodations at the Haven Motel - a economical family run motel -- a bit dated décor but clean and comfortable. You can also book at the many other hotels. I suggest you book soon. Email Paul or me if you have any questions.
