HIKE GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Point of interests
Start the New Year off on the right foot. We hike some of the easier trails of the Halton Agreement Forest. This forest is managed by the Halton Region and an organization called HAFTA (Halton Agreement Forest Trail Association). There are wide easy trails as well as many mountain bike trails with rocky sections. The combination of hiking trails and mountain bike trails make this place magical for hikers and bikers alike.
