APRIL HIKE:  HVHT PALGRAVE TO BOLTON

TIMING:   April 21, Saturday,  9:30 am  (2.5 hrs or 5 hrs)

DESCRIPTION:   (8 kms or 15.5 kms)

Join us for our first end to end hike of the year on the Caledon section of the Humber Valley Heritage Trail, starting at the north end.  Spring appears poised to arrive sooner  than usual this year,  so it will be interesting to see what effect this will have on our trailside natural environment.  Perhaps there will be more small birds in the woods, lured back early to Canada by warmer  weather.  Be prepared for some mud on lowland trail sections, and raingear is always advisable this time of year.

Built and maintained by HVHTA Bolton Chapter,  our  trail is already well known as one of the best hiking opportunities in the GTA.

For those hikers who prefer a shorter outing, a vehicle will be shuttled to Castlederg Road approx. 8 km along the trail to provide a halfway exit point.

Take a lunch if you are planning to hike from end to end. Well-behaved dogs are most welcome.

DIRECTIONS:
We will meet at Dick’s Dam Park in downtown Bolton, and carpool to the starting point.

To find Dick’s Dam:  from Queen Street /Hwy 50 and King Street (main intersection in older part of Bolton), go north on Queen Street to Hickman Street (after crossing Humber River bridge). Go west on Hickman a short distance to Glasgow Road and make a right turn. Follow Glasgow Road north to Dick’s Dam Park, on your left  just before the narrow bridge.
