IF YOU FIND THE WEATHER UNACCEPTABLE PLEASE CANCEL.
IF YOU CANCEL WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE ROYAL BOTANICAL HIKE THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY WITH HOPEFULLY BETTER WEATHER
Note: Because of the large number of people wanting to hike this year we have decided to do 2 hikes. They will both be the same in all aspects except that we will divide the people registered into 2 groups starting 15 minutes apart.
We follow the Niagara Escarpment in Dundas Valley Conservation Area and encounter many Ancaster waterfalls along the trail. Some hills and steep declines on this loop hike. We will see lookouts, a replica of a Victorian train station, ruins, beautiful fall foliage and rolling terrain. Fees to park.
