    We're looking forward to this weekend's hike, which will be our second-last for Iroquoia Club!

    Current forecast is for showers and 11C, so make sure to pack a light waterproof shell.

    As usual, we'll meet at the end point at 8:45 AM to shuttle back to our start point.  This location is on Twiss Rd, near Crawford Lake

    For those who have the Bruce Trail app, this is Parking ID I_071 located at Lat: 43.4477428795981  Lon: -79.95343589343693

    We will shuttle back to the start at the entrance to Mount Nemo, which is where we finished our April hike, at the 87 km marker shown on Map 10 of the Bruce Trail Guide. This is  the roadside parking on Number 2 Sideroad and Walkers Line.
    (Start Point Map)

    This route is approximately 15.4 km, from Mount Nemo to Crawford Lake.  If we have people doing shorter sections, there are several parking areas between 5k and 11k where we could drop a shuttle car.

    Please post back here to let us know if you are coming (and anyone who is coming with you)!

    See you Saturday!

    Hopefully everyone goes to the finish

    I noticed that the link for our hike start was actually the previous hike start. Here is the correct one. (Walkers Line)

    https://www.google.ca/maps/place/43%C2%B025'07.6%22N+79%C2%B051'39.6%22W/@43.418776,-79.8785096,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d43.4187778!4d-79.861

    This Was the Flower Hike

    Post by kmcrorie on Mon May 16, 2016 9:14 pm

    These are the flower plants that I noted on the trail last Saturday:

    • White Trillium (and it variety with green striations and six petals)
      Red Trillium
      Jack-in-the-Pulpit
      Marsh Marigold
      Trout Lily (Dog-Toothed Violet), although flowers were passed
      May Apple (again, flowers passed)
      Large-Flowered Bellwort
      Early Meadow Rue
      Wild Strawberry
      Violet
      Downy Yellow Violet


    Uncertain:

    • either Long-Spurred Violet or Northern White Violet
      either Round-Lobed or Sharp-Lobed Hepetica
      either Smooth or False Solomon's Seal


    Need help to verify:

    • Wild Geranium (in leaf only)
      Bloodroot (in leaf only)
      Yellow Mandarin (Fairy Bells)


    Did you see anything that we can add to the list?

    This is an impressive list! I took a photo of a beautiful mushroom which l think may be Oyster mushroom. The photo is near the end of the Mt Nemo hike photos, which has been added to our hike photo album. If someone can validate that it would be nice.

    Hi Everyone. I was successful in booking a hotel room in Owen Sound for the July hike. Rooms seem to be in short supply. I suggest you book now if you haven't already. I tried to book a room for August and there were no suitable ones available. We may need to look at B&B's or sleep outside!
