So what if it’s going to be supremely cold, we can still hike, no? Gather your warmest socks and wear lots of layers. We’ll adjust the length of the hike according the chill-factor of those who are hiking. And of course we’ll prepare to head into a local establishment for some hot chocolate or tea.

Time: 6:00pm
Location: Port Hope Town Hall parking lot
Hike leader: Pamela Tate

Please RSVP by leaving a comment so we don’t stand in the parking lot shivering too long, wondering who might be coming. :)
