    Pace: Leisurely – 3km/hr or less
    Terrain: Moderate – Some hills and/or some poor footing
    Distance: ~ 4 km

    Description

    Look for this walk this spring.  This hike was cancelled as our guest hike leader can’t lead the hike at this time.  Please visit the park where there is a beautiful side trail and an interesting board walk.

    Guest interpretive leader is Dianne Watkins member of Friends of Kerncliff Park, Burlington’s Field and Stream Rescue Team and  Master’s candidate at U of Waterloo studying ecological restoration. Please arrive at 8:45AM to sign in and the hike will start at 9AM. This education walk will start at the parking lot at City View Park where there is lots of parking. Kerns Road is one way going north after Kerncliff park.  To enter from Dundas (#5) turn south on Kerns Road and take 2nd entrance on the left hand side. If coming from south take the first driveway on the right.  From the City View parking lot, we’ll work our way down into Kerncliff Park after stopping at the beautiful lookout point, and walk through the forest to the old Nelson Quarry where there is now a beautiful wetland and boardwalk.  Dianne will talk about restoration work that FKP and community collaborators have done in this City of Burlington-managed park.  The Bruce Trail runs along the top and has the Ian Reid side trail running through. We’ll talk about the invasive species such as buckthorn and dog strangling vine as well as the native species planting that has encouraged wildlife to come back like red wing blackbirds, northern map turtles and northern water snakes.  The trail has some slopes and if it’s dry we’ll take the steep rocky path up the escarpment after visiting the old quarry. Wear good boots and be prepared for ticks that are active above 4C.  Poles help with keeping yourself stable over roots and rocks.   More information about ticks https://conservationhamilton.ca/ticks-and-lyme-disease/ For a map of Kerncliff https://atasteoftrace.com/2016/10/27/burlington-hikes-kerncliff-park/ orhttps://www.alltrails.com/trail/canada/ontario/ian-reid-side-trail-and-bruce-trail-loop   We will be taking it slow especially on the steep trail back up to City View.  Bring water and snacks.   

    Registration helps me figure out how many people to look for and let you know if the hike is cancelled due to high winds or thunderstorms.  Contact Bron brontreg@cogeco.ca 905-637-7136

Poles recommended to help with balance and when rocks are slippery.  This is a good hike for those wanting to try more difficult sections at a gentle pace.  Bring snacks and water.  There are washrooms available, indoor ones open at 10 am. There is a place to have lunch if you want to stay and enjoy the interpretive section of  the park.  Map 11 in your Bruce Trail Guide.
