Binder Twine Park to Boyd – Fall Colours Hike

Timing: 9:00 am, Sunday, Oct. 20 (approx 3.5 – 4 hrs) – (8 kms in distance)

Come out and enjoy the autumn colours on this annual walk from Bindertwine Park in Kleinburg to Boyd Park in Woodbridge. Adults and children alike will enjoy this amble through forests, meadows and riversides, with several footbridge crossings of the East Humber River.

This will be a wonderful opportunity to explore & enjoy one of the most ecologically diverse green spaces in our region, rich in native plant communities and wildlife. Bring your family & neighbours along for a few hours of fresh air and healthy exercise. It will be a great chance to take photos of the Humber Valley at the peak of fall colours season.

The walking pace will be easy, and although there are some hills along the trail none are too high or too steep for the average hiker. Wear a good pair of walking shoes or boots; and don’t forget to bring water, a snack, and your camera. (Please note that there are no washroom facilities along the 8 km distance of the hike.)

Our friendly, enthusiastic & knowledgeable hike leader will be Deb Schulte (see more info at bottom).


Hike Leader: Deb Schulte is a Regional Councillor at the City of Vaughan who has been involved in protecting and enhancing the East Humber River Valley for over 15 years, serving on the original Boyd North Management Plan Subcommittee, and the Humber Alliance and East Humber Subcommittee for over 10 years. She has served as a Member on the Oak Ridges Moraine Foundation Board, and on the Greenbelt Task Force helping to define the principles of the Greenbelt.

Meet at 9 am at Bindertwine Park in Kleinburg. The park is located a short distance east of Islington Ave along Stegman’s Mill Road, down the hill at valley bottom (just before crossing the river).

For those interested in a car shuttle, be at Boyd Park in Woodbridge (Islington Ave south of Rutherford Rd) at 8:30 am where most cars can be left at hike endpoint. Several cars will bring hikers to startpoint of hike before 9 am.
