Enjoy a fresh peaceful Sunday morning in the Waterdown Woods on the brow of the Escarpment with great views of Hamilton Harbour and the hopefully ice-encrusted Great Falls. We will descend the Grindstone Creek Valley before climbing the Norman Pearson Side Trail back to the Main Trail. We will also take in the King, Kerncliff Park and Ian Reid Side Trails. There will be plenty of ups and downs and most likely some packed snow and ice. Please bring your icers, a warm drink and a snack. Optional refreshment stop after. Please pre-register at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can get an idea of numbers and let you know if the hike has to be cancelled for any reason. Thank you.
