Escarpment Escape: Hike #2: Grindstone Valley
Sunday October 4
The “B” Hike:
Start Time: Meet at 9:15 for 9:30 start. Finish 11:30 – 12:00
Meeting Location: The end of Hidden Valley Road in Burlington. Access is through Hidden Valley Park in Aldershot
Distance: 8 kms (4 kms. each way)
Terrain: Some ups and downs including a mostly gradual descent and ascent of the escarpment, rocky sections, possible mud in wet conditions.
Description: This is an “out and back” hike, starting at the end of Hidden Valley Road and hiking up along the Grindstone Creek to the top of the valley at Smokey Hollow Falls in Waterdown and then back down again. Where possible an alternate trail will be used to reduce backtracking on the same path. It is a very scenic, forested trail offering lovely creek side views while sometimes climbing higher out of the river ravine.
Bring: water, snacks, raingear, appropriate “hiking” footwear. Poles will be useful.
Note: The club’s Covid-19 Safety Guidelines will be observed.
