    Distance: 11 km

    Description

    Difficulty: Intermediate

    Join me for a snowshoe hike from Crawford Lake to Rattlesnake Point. We’ll take in the boardwalk around the Lake and do a combination of main and side trails before heading down into and out of the Nassagaweya Canyon. We’ll finish the walk on the Rattlesnake Point Side Trail. After the hike we’ll take the short drive into Milton for refreshments. Enjoy the winter outdoors just a few km from the city.

    If conditions are not good for snowshoeing we’ll do a winter hike. Icers are recommended for this option.

    We will be using the parking lots at Crawford Lake and Rattlesnake Point so there will be an entrance fee which I will collect with the bus fares. The fee is based on the group rate offered per person.
