Join Peter Rasberry for a leisurely Spring hike on the Cottrill Lake Side Trail. This lovely sidetrail winds 1.4km through both mixed and hardwood forest, and along the shore of this small inland lake. This should be peak time for both spring wildflowers, and bird migration, so it will be a leisurely walk focusing on the identification and appreciation of both! If time permits, we will have the option of adding on the Anne and Clayton Roberts Side Trail.
