Waterdown Winter Wonderland


Free walk. Registration appreciated. 12 km at moderate pace, 3-4 km/hr on moderate terrain -some hills and poor footing. Bring your winter boots with icers, a warm drink/water and lots of snacks. Poles recommended. Optional refreshment stop after.

Enjoy a fresh peaceful Sunday morning in the Waterdown Woods on the brow of the Escarpment with great views of Hamilton Harbour and the hopefully ice-encrusted Great Falls. We will descend the Grindstone Creek Valley before climbing the Norman Pearson Side Trail back to the Main Trail. We will also take in the King, Kerncliff Park and Ian Reid Side Trails. There will be plenty of ups and downs and most likely some packed snow and ice.
