    Description

    Please join me and guest leader, Claudette Baril, as she takes us on a picturesque circular hike along creeks and ravines in her neighborhood (some street walking is involved). I am hoping to do a series of exploratory hikes in the GTA by guest leaders as they take us on familiar trails in their neighborhoods. The area of our hike has a strong history. German Mills was once an industrious village in its Markham community (sadly now lost) founded by Bavarian-born William Berczy and a group of his countrymen and women. In addition to being a prosperous settlement, the community was instrumental in the early development of the area. Among the parks and trails we will be visiting are German Mills Settler’s Park, Don East Parklands Trail and Duncan Creek Trail. Lunch and washroom break will be at Cummer Community Centre (6.5 km into the hike; masks required for entry).  Because of Covid-19 restrictions we will have to eat outside at picnic tables. Please arrive at our meeting spot 15 minutes ahead of time and remember to mask wherever we gather. Icers are required for participation on all TBTC winter hikes, urban or otherwise. Please carry them in your daypack in case they are needed. Hiking poles are also recommended on Winter hikes.
