Description: This waterfront trail parallels the shoreline at the base of Hamilton Harbour, starting at Bayfront park, travelling under the 403 (and high-level bridge) and on to the parking area near Princess Point. We will return on the same route (covering a total of 6.5 km) and then take an additional 1.5 km loop around the east side of Bayfront Park, returning to the parking lot. Depending on numbers, this route may be done in reverse by one of the groups.
Notes: Walking shoes are appropriate but dress warmly as we are right by the water and susceptible to winds.
Bring water and snacks if needed but we are unlikely to stop for many breaks. Please use bathrooms before arriving.
The club’s Covid-19 Safety Guidelines will be observed.
