Mid-Summer Hike in Hal Jackman Forest


June 5, 2014 (Saturday) 19:30 am (2-3 hrs)


Join us for a Saturday morning hike north of Kleinburg on the Hal Jackman property, which sports a truly amazing trail system.

This 600 acre property offers stunning vistas including an elevated lookout over a 20 acre marsh and several large open fields. Most of the hike will travel under the shady canopy of an older mixed hardwood & evergreen forest, often following treed ridges overlooking the winding East Humber River from heights up to 30 metres.

We will cross several of the beautiful wood plank suspension bridges for which the property is famous, and will have a good chance of seeing signs of wildlife—such as deer, coyote, and a wide range of bird sights & sounds.

Hike should last at least 2 hours, and will be fairly strenuous with a lot of elevation changes…good footwear is a must, and dress for the weather.

A great walk for the entire family, and well-behaved dogs are welcomed too.
