    This hike, #1 of 8 will incorporate all the side trails and the main trail in the Toronto section, twice, over a period of time. The other dates have not been finalized but because there will be no car shuttle, you can make up any hikes you miss when it is convenient. All hikes will start and finish at the same location so participants are encouraged to carpool to the meeting place.

    Participation in all the hikes, which is not mandatory unless you are hiking for badges, will qualify you for two of each badge: Toronto ETE badge as well as the Toronto Sideways badge.

    The first hike is from Hilton Falls parking and will incorporate the Philip Gosling Side Trail, part of the main trail and the Hilton Falls Side Trail up to the parking lot nearest to 15 Sideroad on Sixth Line. The return hike will take us back to the parking lot at Hilton Falls Conservation Area.

    We will make stops to feed birds (bring bird seed) and also to see the falls.
