This loop hike takes us along a wooded piece of the escarpment and through an old limestone quarry (pre-dynamite days) on a piece of the Bruce Trail.
We’ll meet at the Bruce Trail crossing on Quarry Rd. above Beamsville. To get there, take the QEW east to Ontario St. in Beamsville. Exit onto Ontario St. and take Ontario to King St. in downtown Beamsville. Turn left on King St. and go 2 km to Quarry Rd. on your right. Turn right on Quarry Rd. and drive to the top of the escarpment where you’ll find a wide shoulder bordering a chain link fence on your right. Park in the ample space beside the fence.
Wear hiking boots and bring water. For something a little stronger than water, we’ll go for a pub stop in Beamsville after the hike.

Starting in 2009 Eibert Dykstra led a series of hikes on the Conservation Trail in New York State. It took several years to complete the 295km trail meandering from the Pennsylvania border to Niagara Falls where it meets up with the Bruce Trail. In honor of my first hike leaders – Eibert and Everett Collins (who was on all these hikes) I will lead 3 hikes on the Conservation Trail this year. The first sections are more rugged starting in the Allegany State Park and extend through the ski area of Ellicottville. This is the area where we will hike this year. Sections of these hikes will be strenuous. If you commit to these hikes, pack a lunch, snacks and plenty of water. Plan on spending a full day away. We will be carpooling from Fort Erie. Passport or equivalent is required. To register or for more information contact Hike Leader.
