Weekend Hikes: Saturday, March 14th and Sunday, March 15th

Both hikes start at 1:30 but have different meeting locations. The trails may be a mix of muck, ice, and snow so gaiters, poles, and icers may be useful to bring if you have them.

These activities are outside and we’ll practice our social distancing, but if you are not feeling well or fall into any of the groups who have been advised to take self isolation measures, please do not join us.

Tuesday Morning Hike: March 3rd: A Walk on the Wild(er) Side

Let us meet at the Legion Fields parking lot and head east and south. Destination – Cobourg Bluffs. Scenic views. Fresh Lake Ontario breezes. This route is flat. As in NO hills flat. But given the weather forecast, we might run into snow, ice, water, crushed limestone, and pavement as your walking surfaces, so icers for your boots would be a good idea.
To get to the Legion Fields meeting point, from the south-most roundabout on D’Arcy Street take the east exit and drive straight ahead to the last parking area.
Coffee and social at the Dutch Oven to follow.
Date: Tuesday, March 3rd

Sunday, February 16th: Silent Lake Cross Country Ski

You are invited to join a group planning on skiing around Silent Lake in the provincial park by the same name this Sunday. The distance is 16.5km and the trail is moderate in difficulty with hills and turns. The trail is usually groomed and track set but due to equipment failure this has not been done since February 11th. However, park staff advise that it should still be in good shape and that quite a few skiers have been out on it this week.
There is a warm up hut with a wood stove at the 10km point where we can stop for lunch. Dress in layers, bring lots of fluids, lunch and snacks. There is a heated comfort station at the day use parking lot so you may want to also bring a change of clothes for the ride home.
The fee for a parking pass is $17 per vehicle. If you wish to carpool, please indicate this in your comments.
For those you want to come out but want to a shorter ski or to snowshoe, that’s certainly an option but you will need to organize your group.
Date: Sunday, February 16th
Start Time: 10:00
Meeting Location: parking lot of day use area, Silent Lake Provincial Park
Ski Organizer: Maria Siemiaszko
Distance: 16.5km

Guests are welcome but need to bring a signed waiver found near the upper right corner of our home page. This also applies to anyone who hasn’t purchased their 2020 membership yet.
