Point of interests
This hike, the sixth of the series, will involve a walk through neighbourhoods featuring the grand old homes of Hamilton’s elite in the era following WW1. These are of a class more esthetically attractive than their multi-million cousins of today. We’ll not forget, however, the beauty of the escarpment trails behind them as part of the hike will be on the Bruce Trail which means there’ll be some rocky and slippery surfaces to walk on.
