    2016 11 12 - Toronto Club Hike #2

    Post by cgundlack on Mon Apr 18, 2016 7:17 am

    Hi All!  After a weekend of great weather and the general craziness leading up to it, Road2Hope Marathon is over and I can turn my attention back to hiking...

    This weekend, we'll be doing the second of our Toronto club sections from Limehouse to 10th Line (Bruce Trail Maps 12 & 13).  Since we adjusted our schedule to accommodate completing Sydenham in October, we'll have one remaining section to complete Toronto.  

    Saturday, November 12 (2016), we'll be meeting at 8:45AM at the roadside parking on 10th Line (T_016) near Terra Cotta Conservation area,(43.70974906165262, -79.96289289916211).  Google Map for T-016 Parking

    From there, we will shuttle to the start, which you may recall was in the church parking lot in Limehouse.
    (Parking marker T_012, 43.63685914656407,-79.97981805586905) Limehouse Church Location Map

    This hike is approximately 17.3km long. Based on our normal pace, I would expect us to be done between 3PM and 4PM, as usual.

    Remember that we are getting into late-Fall conditions, and dressing in layers is very helpful--including carrying a waterproof layer and rain hat.  1C and rain can be very uncomfortable--and potentially hazardous--if you are insufficiently equipped.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Hi Christian, We are thinking of coming to the hike on November 12. I may not be able to do the full distance so wondered if there was a spot midway where we could park a car. What time will this hike start?
    Thanks!

    Hello,
    I am not going to be able to hike on Nov 12. If there is anyone else who is unable to hike that date and who would like to go either on the 13th or the 5th or the 6th or the 20th, let me know. Gerda

    Dinner looks like a great idea, we're in. Do you have a suggested location?

    The Mohawk Inn was pretty good at Campbellville and is on the way home for all of us

    Hi Roberta--just saw this post. We can arrange a drop car part way--I'll look at the route to find an appropriate place.

    The hike details are now posted, and we'll meet at 8:45AM

    Gossette and Denny will be there also. I just spoke to John Reardon, and he and Roberta won't be there this Saturday after all.

    Correction. the 210.6 total from 2016 includes the last 10 Km of Toronto which in fact we have NOT done yet so the total should have been 200.6 Km.
    Merry Christmas to all!
