Humber Valley X-Country Ski / Hike
Timing: February 11, Saturday, 9:30 am (1.5-2 hrs)
The group will split in two – hikers and skiers. With access to 200 hectares of conservation land, this is a great opportunity to get out on your skis. Scenic trails through open fields and forests with gentle slopes provide a great opportunity for fresh air and enjoyment of nature. We’ll ski/hike for 1.5 hours but you are welcome to stay longer. This is perfect terrain for cross country skiing!
Whether waxed or waxless, old or young, come out and enjoy the winter wonderland on your skis. Assistance will be available for both equipment and technique.
While it certainly doesn’t look good for skiing, we have an interesting all new route in the area planned for a hike. Lots of open spaces, vistas and ponds.
Based on recent tracks on snow days there are plenty of deer, fox and coyotes in the area as well as beaver munching on their winter stash of twigs; not to mention at least one pair of ravens along with wild turkey, grouse and hawks.
Please contact hike leader early with your preference for hiking or skiing.

We will explore conservation land just northwest of Kleinburg, at end of Kirby Road. Turn west from Highway 27 onto Kirby, and park at the dead end.
