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!
