    Description

    Join us for an Iroquoia pop-up hike – the first in the “Up the Iroquoia!” series of hikes exploring the mighty Iroquoia Section of the Bruce Trail.  We will take in the magnificent heights of Kelso in a combination loop/”in-and-out”.  The main hike is 10 kms which will take us back to the cars where folks can drop out if they so desire.  The more intrepid among us will grasp the nettle firmly and head to the Hilton Falls parking lot and back (4.5 kms).  Participants must navigate their own way through the Conservation Halton website to make at least two back-to-back two-hour reservations (4 hours total) if they opt for the 10 kms.  Three two-hour back-to-back reservations suggested if the 15 km hike is chosen.  Halton Conservation annual pass membership strongly recommended as we will be hiking other Halton Conservation trails in the weeks ahead.  Please don’t forget the Daylight Savings Time change the day of the hike.  Hiking boots mandatory.  Bring plenty of liquids, a snack and a lunch.  Your own song and singing on the trail optional.  Beatles preferred.  Godspeed.

    Pleasant hike that should get a little sweat going.  A chance to see the Valley in all its fall glory.  Please dress for the weather.  the outdoor site offers some protection from the weather and a good place to gather.  We may add on Deer Run Trail, lets see.

    Please feel free to bring your dog (on leash).  It might be a good idea to bring hiking stick as trail can be slippery.
