Point of interests
This is the fifth hike of the Variety-Pak Hike Series on Hamilton’s Escarpment Rail Trail (aka Chippewa Electric Rail Trail). The criterion of variety demands that it will also be the last since there’s only so much flatness that a body can take. To rephrase an old rhyme, "I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than more of a rail trail’s monotony."
