HIKE GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Point of interests
A nice leisurely walk from Dundas Driving Park through Old Dundas. If trail conditions are favorable, we will hike up Sydenham Rd. and access the Bruce Trail and side trails to the Peak and Tews Falls.
An easier walk along Spencer Creek towards McMaster and back if trails are “icy”.
And then a “few” laps around the skating loop to get the other muscles in the legs moving.
A definite warm up drink afterwards.
Yes. A Must. Leaders appreciate early registration and at least 24 hours before the event.
• If your plans change, please self-cancel as soon as possible so that other HOC members may take your spot.
