    *** HIKE CANCELLED DUE TO LOW REGISTRATION **

    Join us for a pleasant stroll through the Island Lake Conservation Authority in Orangeville Ontario. We will do a full circuit of the trails, many of which run on boardwalks over the water and through marshy areas. A very scenic and relaxed walk for an August day.

    We’ll eat our lunch near the rental area for canoes and kayaks. It will be a leisurely lunch break (at least an hour) and you can take a paddle or swim before we resume the walk.

    For information on the Conservation Authority see: https://cvc.ca/discover-our-parks/island-lake/

    Approximate Route: https://onthegomap.com/s/pbhu04ip

    After the walk we will head to Orangeville for refreshments. Please indicate in the Additional Information Field when registering if you would like to visit the Mill Creek Pub so I can give them numbers to reserve a table. There is a very fine ice cream shop near the pub and there are a number of places to get good coffee on Broadway Avenue, about a block north of where we will park. I expect to spend about an hour in town before we head back to Toronto.

    Description

    Join us for a hike through the incomparable Niagara Glen Nature Preserve. There is a variety of trails in the Glen and we’ll take them all in through a series of loops. After eating lunch next to the Niagara River we will continue south along the Whirlpool Trail that (part of the way) hugs the narrow space between the base of the cliffs  and the River. The footing can be tricky but we will take our time and it is worth the experience. We will then climb the stairs at the Whirlpool Beach back to the top and follow the Niagara Pathway back to the Nature Preserve parking lot.

    If you don’t wish to do the Whirlpool Trail there will be an opportunity to drop out and relax in the park where we started the walk. You may wish to visit the Butterfly Conservatory and/or the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens which are a ten minute walk from the Niagara Glen Nature Centre. Just be back at the bus for the departure time which will be provided that morning.

    Hiking boots are recommended. All the trails have rocky portions and some, particularly the Whirlpool Trail, can be wet.

    Bring your lunch, at least two litres of water and sun and insect protection.

    After the hike we will make a refreshment stop on Lundy’s Lane on the way back to Toronto. There are public washrooms at the Niagara Glen Nature Centre which will be available when we arrive and before we start the trip back.
