Join Beth Gilhespy on this hike to explore the beautiful stretch of the Bruce Trail between Silent Valley and Woodford, to see fossils, crevices, a lime kiln, drumlins and many other features!  The pace will be slow but steady and exploratory, as participants will be helping scout a route that will be included in Beth's Sydenham Walking Through Time Geology Hike book, due to be completed in 2024. While about 6.5 km, hikers can expect to be out for about 4 hours. Bring lunch, snacks, water and your curiosity!
