DURATION APPROX (hrs)
Moderate- Steady climb at the start with some significant “ups and downs” along the way. Wide trails. Footing generally good; however, winter conditions may still be around so icers and poles may be essential for your own safety.
TYPE OF HIKE
This hike is a combination of two trails. Commencing on the rail trail, picking up the Monarch trail and following that trail until it meets up with the main loop in the valley, heading towards the trail centre (washrooms). After a short nature break/snack, the group will head back towards Dundas along the Spring Creek trail to Sanctuary Park where we will join the rail trail for a short walk back to the parking lot.
Great lookouts over Dundas Valley (no leaves on trees)
Yes. A Must.
Leaders appreciate early registration and at least 24 hrs before the event.
