Day’s Agenda - 10:00 am- 12 noon- choose one of hiking, cycling, or paddling
HIKERS: Vicki Barron Lakeside Hike, 8.5 km
Start time 10:00 AM
Meet at P2. Once you pass the visitor gate drive for a few meters and turn left. Parking is off Memorial Forest Trail
Terrain is easy with only one hill and is gravel packed. The entire loop will take approx. 2 hours to complete, depending on stops, pictures and bio break. The trail will take us along forested- areas, board walks and bridges. Are you wondering about the name? It was named to recognize the outstanding contributions made by Vicki Barron, retired General Manager of Credit Valley Conservation and winner of the A.D. Latornell Conservation Pioneer award for her efforts to protect Ontario's watersheds.
PADDLERS: - 10AM launch just before the rental centre at the dock. Park straight ahead from the kiosk at the edge of the water. Just a leisurely paddle around the lake, A-1 level.
A small number of rental kayaks may be available (from members bringing extra boats, not from the CA)
In the afternoon, if there is sufficient interest, we will have a couple of typical sea kayaks and stand up paddleboards available for people to try out. This is geared toward the person who has never tried paddling but would like to give it a try without investing a lot of money or time. No experience required; but appropriate clothing must be worn - water shoes and quick dry (not cotton or jeans).
Participants need to register for this in advance to get some idea of interest (either kayak or SUP) so that we have an idea how many boats/SUPs and helpers are needed.
Management Area Parking on Hwy 10 North of Brampton. Parking lot is off Hwy 10, on
the west side. Cycle on the Caledon Trail to Terra Cotta & back, 22 Km. Flat surface, tight
