    2015 11 14 (Sat) Iroquoia Hike #3 - DUNDAS VALLEY HIKE: Chedoke to Woodley Lane

    Dundas Valley Hike

    Our final hike of 2015 takes us from the foot of the Chedoke Golf Club stairs, out of Hamilton and through the Dundas Valley Conservation Area, finishing at Woodley Rd., at an estimated distance of 16.7 km.

    Map 8  (Ed. 28.0)
    Chedoke Golf Club Stairs @ 38.5
    Woodley Lane @55.2


    The Plan:
    We will meet at Woodley Lane parking at 8:45 AM  (Marker I_044, roadside parking can handle 10 vehicles, free, Lat: 43.271857459331756 Lon:-79.9760257465189
    http://bit.ly/1Rv25x3)

    We will then shuttle back to the start-point at the Chedoke Golf Club parking area. (43.24620528353219,-79.90693453848023)  http://bit.ly/1QUgsKA

    Recommendations:
    1. For those interested, the Tiffany Falls side trail (45.0 km mark on the map) would add about an extra 1 km, but takes you in to a lovely set of falls.  Very easy section.
    2. Sherman Falls is at the 46.4 km mark, which is very close to half-way, and would be a good spot for a lunch break
    3. No wineries along this route, but we will have an opportunity to stop at the Dundas Valley Trail Centre for hot chocolate and a treat with around 5k to go.

    Pot Luck:
    All are welcome to come back to our place (Our location)afterward for another pot-luck dinner. We'll set up a crock pot of pulled pork, have some dogs and burgers (incl. veggie burgers) for the bbq and make a basic salad.  Post up if you're joining us and what you're bringing to help us with numbers and food decisions.  Also, as requested, bring any musical instruments you like and we'll have a bit of a kitchen party Smile

    Hi Barb and I will be there. I'm bringing pumpkin spice muffins, not sure about what Barb is bringing yet so I guess it'll be a surprise.

    That was a fun day! Many thanks to all of you for the outstanding contributions to the pot luck dinner, and for all of the help cleaning up--you're all welcome back anytime -- even Aggie Wink

    Big shout-out to Doris for the great performance, lyric sheets and special Hike The Bruce song!

    Also, it was great to welcome some new hikers and we'll hope to see them back in the New Year Smile

    You got to the forum first!

    I think we all owe you a huge thank you Christian and Karen, for organizing and hosting a great year of hiking! And for your musical entertainment Saturday night.

    Yes Doris deserves Kudo's for her songbook as well. Geoff and the Viola was a great addition to the musical treat. I am already looking forward to next year.
