Point of interests
This hike is the 10th in 52-hike series. The loop has an elongated shape which traces the edge of the escarpment in Conservation Halton’s Waterdown Woods. The loop is made up of a short section of the Bruce Trail and some associated side trails. We’ll take moments here and there to ooh and ahh at views of Burlington and Lake Ontario below.
Yes. A Must. Up to 15 hikers can be accommodated.
• If your plans change, please self-cancel as soon as possible so that other HOC members may take part.
