This hike offers a choice — walk the first half of the Caledon section of the Humber Valley Heritage Trail, or go end to end for double that distance (15.5 kms). Either choice will provide lots of healthy exercise and a variety of lovely scenery. There are forests & meadows to view, streams with bridges to cross, valleys & hills to climb, and if you are lucky…wildlife to photograph!
The rolling topography of the trail setting is typical of the Oak Ridges Moraine landscape. Some short stretches of road walking will be required, but the roads used are not busy. Be prepared for some mud on lowland trail sections, and raingear is always advisable this time of year.
For those hikers who prefer the shorter outing, a vehicle will be shuttled to Castlederg Road approx. 8 km along the trail to provide a halfway exit point.
Bring water & take a lunch if you are planning to hike from end to end.
Well-behaved dogs are most welcome.
Bob Slack has led many hikes on this trail for Bruce Trail Conservancy and HVHTA.
We will meet at Dick’s Dam Park in downtown Bolton, and carpool to the starting point.
