Humber Valley Heritage Trail: CASTLEDERG TO PALGRAVE

Timing:

April 26/14 (Saturday) at 9:30 am. (2.5 hrs)

Description:

This hike will take us along the northern half of the HVHT, starting our walk at the Castlederg Road access point (see Directions below for car shuttle info). Because of road closures to the south this year, we will not have the option of hiking the entire trail as we have had in previous years.

Spring has come late in 2014, but it’s finally here and in a couple of weeks we should be able to spot wildflowers that are just coming into bloom… 

The rolling topography of the trail setting is typical of the Oak Ridges Moraine landscape. There are forests & meadows to view, bridges over streams to cross, valleys & hills to climb, and if you are lucky…wildlife to photograph!

Bring water & a snack, and raingear is always advisable this time of year.

Well-behaved dogs are most welcome.

Hike Leader:

Bob Slack has led many hikes on this trail for Bruce Trail Conservancy and HVHTA..

Directions:

We will meet near Palgrave on Humber Station Road, about 3 km north of Old Church Road. This is the intersection with the Caledon Trailway and is the northern terminus of the Humber Valley Heritage Trail, and some cars will be left here.

We will then drive in about half of our vehicles to Castlederg Road, where we will start our hike.  After reaching the northern terminus, those hikers whose vehicles were left at Castlederg will get a ride back there to pick up their cars.
