Join us for a Winter visit to the scenic trails of Cootes Paradise by McMaster University to Princess Point where a fire pit, skaters, and hot chocolate await. Icers are a must for the trails and hills. From Princess Point we'll proceed to West Hamilton for GO Bus connections to Aldershot or the express bus to Union Station. You may also return to McMaster. Cootes Paradise is a beautiful nature getaway and the largest, most diverse sanctuary in the Royal Botanical Gardens spanning over 600 hectares. On the trails and their lookouts you may spot wildlife, even in Winter. Princess Point has local bus service if you don't wish to walk further. Dress warmly for the weather and bring icers and hot drinks.
