    These hikes are subject to pandemic protocols and masks are strongly recommended.

    Crampons or a suitable traction device will be needed for your boots – please ensure you bring these.

    This is a small group series of hikes as there is limited capacity for parking in some locations. We will meet at 8:30 each day, brisk pace, 15 min lunch. Please register only if you intend to complete the entire series.

    Location (Google Maps): 152 Sheffield Street, Cambridge (paved parking lot across from industrial buildings)
    If you are driving north of Guelph Avenue (=Highway 24 once you are out of town), you will cross railway tracks, then turn left onto Sheffield. Drive until you see a gravel parking lot but park in the paved area on your left side instead. Either parking location is fine. If you have gone around a curve, you have gone too far.
