Happy Valley forest Walk

Timing: 9:30 am, Saturday, December 10/12 (2 hrs)

Description:

Join us for the second of two autumn walks in the Happy Valley Forest. In September we explored the southern forest edge, and this time we will venture into the middle portion which straddles the watershed peak of the Oak Ridges Moraine.

Apart from walking in glorious woods, you never know what we may find. There are lots of winter birds and we might see other wildlife. Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the black bear whose footprints were found in this area a number of years ago!

Hike Leaders:

David Love (Executive Director of the Conservation Foundation of Greater Toronto) & Ann Love (local artist and writer) with HVHTA hike leader Mark van Stempvoort.

Directions:

Meet Ann & David Love at the dead end of the 7th Concession Road, just north of the 16th Sideroad in King Township.

One approach is to follow King Road east out of Nobleton, turn north (left) at the second rural road (last one before Weston Rd), and go roughly 3 kms north to where it dead ends in a parking area.
