    2015 10 03 & 04 Niagara: Weekend (Oct 3-4) "Aggie's Trail"

    As we wind down our 2015 hiking season, we find ourselves with only a small amount left in the Niagara club, after which we will be eligible to apply for our Niagara badge.  We'd like to make sure everyone has a chance to hit this goal before the snow flies.  

    What remains:
    1. Back in the May, the forecast of a series of violent thunderstorms required us to postpone our scheduled hike until October 3rd.  This hike goes from Wiley Rd to Ball's Falls, and is approximately 19.1 km.

    2. In June, trail rerouting of the original hike meant that it was going to be ~28km--this was shortened to ~19 which left us with a 9.8 km remnant (Mountainview Conservation Area to Grimsby) to complete the Niagara Club.

    We will extend the 9.8km on October 5th beyond Grimsby to the 4.7km mark in Iroquoia club, making the Sunday hike 14.5 km.

    This also has spillover benefit to the upcoming schedule.  We will extend the 9.8km on October 4th beyond Grimsby to the 4.7km mark in Iroquoia club, making the Sunday hike 14.5 km.

    Please respond in this thread for yourself and any others as to which days you will/will not be joining us!

    Just an update. Goss and I will be at the hikes on the 3rd and 4th October.
    We are unable to do the hike on the 24th October due to some events at Goss store, so we are planning to do it the next day, Sunday the 25th. If anyone else is unable to do the Saturday and interested in the Sunday please contact me.
