This is a level 1 hike, with wide, well maintained trails. It is mostly flat, with some gentle, rolling hills, excellent for our first hike of the season.

The distance will be ten to twelve kilometres. The pace will be moderate at three for four kilometers per hour. We will finish at 3:30-4:00pm.

Après Hike

If we want to stop for something on the way back, we can try the Coach House Pub, 3 Felcher Blvd Whitchurch-Stouffville. This is straight back down Highway 48, just south of Regional Road 15.
