    Pace: Leisurely – 3 km/hour or less
    Terrain: Moderate – some hills and/or some poor footing
    Distance: 8.8 km

    Description

    Please note the 10 am start time to accommodate potential winter driving conditions. This 8.8 km Forest Bathing hike will take us south on the main Bruce Trail, from Dunby Rd. through a pleasant re-forested area with scenic views, to the forests of the Hockley Valley Nature Reserve and the junction with the Isabel East Side Trail. We then head back north and take the Cam Snell Side Trail, observing the state of the stream in winter, before turning east through woodlands to re-join the main Bruce Trail and return to our start point. Key words for this walk could be forest, stream, some long steepish sections and learn why this is called the Cam Snell Side Trail! We will hope for good weather for driving and hiking. Bring beverage and lunch. Be prepared to bring icers and/or snowshoes, as required for trail conditions. This hike qualifies for earning the much coveted, artistic CHBTC 60th combo anniversary badges. Potential coffee/snack/lunch cafe stop to warm up after the hike.
