Point of interests
This hike is indeed a treasure. After walking through the hamlet of Lemonville we will begin to ascend the escarpment and then will head north on Hidden Valley Trail to where it descends to meet main Bruce Trail where it crosses Grindstone Creek. We will have a long, steady ascent up to the top of the Escarpment. We leave Bruce Trail to follow a lovely unmarked trail until we join Lemonville Rd. and return to our start.
Yes. A Must. Leaders appreciate early registration and at least 24 hours before the event.
1-2 weeks prior to the hike
