Saturday, February 8th: Morning Snow Shoe, Evening Cross Country Ski

With fresh snow on it’s way, we’ll head outside Saturday to enjoy a couple of outdoor activities!
In the morning, the Pine Ridge Hiking Club will be snow shoeing on the Leckey Property, part of the Northumberland Land Trust and all are welcome to join. The terrain is moderate and there are 4 or 6km options. If you wish to carpool, the hiking club will be leaving the Home Hardware parking lot, Toronto Road in Port Hope at 9:30 a.m., or the commuter parking lot at 45 and 401 at 9:50 a.m.. If you wish to meet at the property, it is at the end of Kelly Road which runs off of Morganston Road, north of Castleton.

Date: Saturday, February 8th
Start Time: 10:15 a.m.
Meeting Location: see above for car pool options but be sure to arrive at least 10 minutes before departure time, or at the end of Kelly Road
Snow Shoe Leader: Maria Siemiaszko
Distance: approx. 4 or 6km

The full snow moon is this weekend and we’ll enjoy it with a full moon ski on the Lang Hastings Trail. It is a flat, wide, and obstacle free trail which makes it suitable for a night ski. Because this is part of the Great Trail, other activities are allowed, including snowmobiling so dig out the Christmas lights and any other lights and reflective clothing/items you have to make ourselves visible. We may explore the trail to the east first so if you can’t make the 6:00 p.m. start time but want to join us, let us know in the comments and we can make sure we come back to pick you up at 7:00 p.m.
Date: Saturday, February 8th
Start Time: 6:00 (or you can join us at 7:00 if we know to come back for you!)
Meeting Location: parking lot just south of Banjos, Hastings
Ski Leader: Maria Siemiaszko

Stay tuned for a probably Sunday afternoon cross country ski at Beagle Club. Post to follow soon!
