GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Point of interests

This hike is in a geologically interesting area with many valleys and hills within the Dundas Valley itself, showing the results of long gone glaciers. Many ravines cut through the valley leading to lovely creeks and some waterfalls. Meet in the last parking lot at 9:15 am. Parking fee in effect or a conservation area pass. We will hike one loop ending at the Trail Centre for a snack and then complete a second loop.
