From the RBG dog park we will take the Ray Lowes side trail to the main trail. There is one steep hill and some stairs to climb, and to descend on the return. Turning left along the main trail, we will continue along the escarpment past Borer's Falls, all the way to where the trail reaches Romer Drive. This hike offers views of the Dundas Valley and Cootes Paradise. This is a "there and back" hike.
Hiking boots, snack, water. Hiking poles recommended especially for the ascent and descent.
