HVHTA North of Nashville Walk

START TIME: 9:30 AM

DISTANCE: 4 km

DURATION: 1.5 – 2 hrs

DESCRIPTION: Last time we led a hike on our lovely trail loop north of Nashville was past December under winter conditions, and we are looking forward to revisiting in verdant summer season. After crossing the Humber River, our circular route enters an older growth mixed forest, which features a number of giant Sugar Maples and Beech trees dating from pioneer days and earlier. The trail then rises to an upland meadow section, offering sweeping overviews of surrounding tableland and the Humber Valley below, before descending and recrossing the river.

LOCATION: Park at roadside near trailhead at junction of Huntingdon & Kirby Roads, a couple of kilometres north of Nashville Road (same distance east of Bolton).

The walking pace will be easy, the distance traversed about 4 kilometres, and the hike will last about 1.5-2 hrs.

Bring your hiking boots, a water bottle, and perhaps bug repellent.

HIKE LEADER: Mark van Stempvoort
