Humber Valley Heritage Trail
Hike leader: Howard Gibson
Date: Sunday, 2010 November 14
The Humber Valley Heritage Trail,
runs along the Humber valley from the Bruce Trail and the Caledon
Trailway, through Bolton, to past Caledon King Town Line South. There
are plans for it to run all the way down to Lake Ontario. There are
also plans for the Oak Ridges trail to meet all of this, somewhere
in the general area.
Please show up for carpooling at
Yonge and York Mills.
We want to make sure everyone who wants to go hiking goes hiking.
From Yonge and York Mills...
Drive west on Highway 401, to Highway 409.
Drive west on Highway 409, to Highway 427.
Drive north on Highway 427 to the very end at Highway 7,
then turn left.
Drive across to Highway 50, then turn right. The sign does not
clearly say Highway 50, but it does say Bolton.
Drive on Highway 50 until you reach Bolton. You will cross a
bridge over train tracks and shortly after, will go down a hill and
drive through the old part of the town. The traffic light at the
bottom of the hill is King Street.
Drive through the light (on the green of course!) and cross the
Immediately after the bridge, turn left onto Hickman Street.
From Hickman Street, turn right onto Glasgow Road. This intersection
comes up almost immediately.
Glasgow Road winds a bit around a park on the left hand side. You
are looking for the parking lot for Dick's Dam Park. This is also
on the left hand side.
This is a level 2 hike requiring
hiking boots. There are some serious hills, and we are doing fifteen
kilometers. The speed will be moderate to fast.
Bolton is not very far from Toronto, so we will try to get the hike
going at 11:15am.
