Celebrate the arrival of Spring with a lovely walk in one of the jewels of the Conservation Halton parks system.  We will start at Crawford Lake then cross the ancient glacial spillway of the Nassagaweya Canyon over to Rattlesnake Point and then head back.  Lots of lookouts and classic Bruce Trail cliff-top scenery.  There are certainly some steep icy sections so icers and a sound heart are a must.  Online reservations are required at Halton Parks .  There are no staff at the gate so prepayment online essential.  Your money is going towards the conservation efforts we all believe in.  Please bring icers as mentioned, a warm drink, water, a snack, a lunch, an appreciation of nature and a smile.  Poles recommended.  Please arrive at 9:15 for a 9:30 start.
