Description

This loop hike takes us along a wooded piece of the escarpment and through an old limestone quarry (pre-dynamite days) on a piece of the Bruce Trail.

We'll meet at the Bruce Trail crossing on Quarry Rd. above Beamsville. To get there, take the QEW east to Ontario St. in Beamsville. Exit onto Ontario St. and take Ontario to King St. in downtown Beamsville. Turn left on King St. and go 2 km to Quarry Rd. on your right. Turn right on Quarry Rd. and drive to the top of the escarpment where you'll find a wide shoulder bordering a chain link fence on your right. Park in the ample space beside the fence.

Wear hiking boots and bring water. For something a little stronger than water, we'll go for a pub stop in Beamsville after the hike.
