Puslinch Tract is well known to the locals in Cambridge. This parcel of land offers hiking and mountain biking trails with a variety of terrain and both hardwood and coniferous forests. It borders the 401, so there is some highway noise, but one tunes it out after a while. A bonus is the fact that the En Route is accessible, with heated bathrooms. Before COVID we would have our lunch indoors but that is unlikely going to be an option for this hike; however, you can still purchase a hot drink +- lunch. Please BRING A LUNCH just in case.
