Exit onto Ontario St. and take Ontario to King St. in downtown Beamsville. Turn left on King St. and go 2 km to Quarry Rd. on your right. Turn right on Quarry Rd. and drive to the top of the escarpment where you’ll find a wide shoulder bordering a chain link fence on your right. Park in the ample space beside the fence.

We will likely stop for supper before heading home.

    The McCrae Lake Conservation Reserve is a 2,039 hectare managed area of crown land located in the Muskoka District of Ontario, Canada.  It’s a very popular semi-wilderness area that is used for a variety of outdoor recreational activities, including hiking, camping, canoeing, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and photography.  There are several kilometres of maintained trails for each activity, and the relatively open terrain offers countless opportunities for off-trail exploration.  Extending from McDonald Lake in the east, adjacent to Highway 400, to Georgian Bay on the west and the Gibson River to the north, outdoor activity opportunities are endless.  McCrae Lake is completely contained within the Reserve.

    Description

    Starting in 2009 Eibert Dykstra led a series of hikes on the Conservation Trail in New York State. It took several years to complete the 295km trail meandering from the Pennsylvania border to Niagara Falls where it meets up with the Bruce Trail.  In honor of my first hike leaders – Eibert and Everett Collins (who was on all these hikes) I will lead 3 hikes on the Conservation Trail this year.  The first sections are more rugged starting in the Allegany State Park and extend through the ski area of Ellicottville.   This is the area where we will hike this year. Sections of these hikes will be strenuous.  If you commit to these hikes, pack a lunch, snacks and plenty of water.  Plan on spending a full day away.  We will be carpooling from Fort Erie.  Passport or equivalent is required. To register or for more information contact Hike Leader.
