GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Point of interests

This fourth hike on the Chippewa Electric Rail Trail  will take us into the last rural fields and sod farms awaiting future development by the Hamilton building industry.  At a point invisible to us, we’ll pass over the height of land between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. That high point can’t be very high because the terrain looks almost flat.
