    Description

    I have always wanted to explore the mountain bike trails that crisscross the Bruce Trail in this part of Waterdown. We’ll wander around and see where they all go to, on foot, not on bicycles (this is the BTC web page after all!). I will bring a GPS to lay a breadcrumb trail and to help us get back to our cars…… eventually! This is a very hilly area, so be warned, you will get a work-out.

    Hike Leader: Louise Langlais; Email: langlaislouise@gmail.com. Cell: 519-222-4040 on day of hike. At other times, email is the best way to contact me. Wear appropriate quick-dry clothing and hiking boots. Bring sunscreen, insect repellent (summer), icers (winter), snacks, lunch, a personal first aid kit, and 1-2 litres of water. During COVID, also bring hand sanitizer and a face mask. Please email me at least 24 hours before the hike to register. Sometimes last minute changes are made to hikes; registering means you won’t be waiting around the meeting place not knowing why no-one else is there! For personalized driving directions, just copy and paste the GPS coordinates into a Google search window and voila! Please arrive at least 15 minutes early.

      Description

      I have always wanted to explore the mountain bike trails that crisscross the Bruce Trail in this part of Waterdown. We’ll wander around and see where they all go to, on foot, not on bicycles (this is the BTC web page after all!). I will bring a GPS to lay a breadcrumb trail and to help us get back to our cars…… eventually! This is a very hilly area, so be warned, you will get a work-out.

      Hike Leader: Louise Langlais; Email: langlaislouise@gmail.com. Cell: 519-222-4040 on day of hike. At other times, email is the best way to contact me. Wear appropriate quick-dry clothing and hiking boots. Bring sunscreen, insect repellent (summer), icers (winter), snacks, lunch, a personal first aid kit, and 1-2 litres of water. During COVID, also bring hand sanitizer and a face mask. Please email me at least 24 hours before the hike to register. Sometimes last minute changes are made to hikes; registering means you won’t be waiting around the meeting place not knowing why no-one else is there! For personalized driving directions, just copy and paste the GPS coordinates into a Google search window and voila! Please arrive at least 15 minutes early.
