Description

Enjoy a quiet Sunday morning exploring the west side of the Twelve Mile Creek in Bronte Provincial Park with fellow Forest Bathers as we trundle through woodland and then descend the valley to the creek that William Lyon Mackenzie had to cross in a hurry in the aftermath of the failed 1837 Upper Canada Rebellion.  We will check out Spruce Lane Farm and hopefully some farm animals too.  The trail could very well be icy so please bring your icers as well as a snack and a warm drink.  Please pre-register at stuarthikes@gmail.com so that I can get an idea of numbers and let you know if the hike has to be cancelled for any reason.  Thank you.
