Saturday November 23
Hike Leader: Howard Gibson
Going longer distances for challenging hikes is fun. When we do it on Saturday, we have more time to wander around the site and linger at the restaurant, afterwards. Saturday also gets us around Grey Cup day, Sunday.
Wine tasting is a cool way break up the stages of a hike.
We are headed for the Niagara Peninsula to hike the Bruce Trail through wine country. If you have a Bruce Trail guide, look at Map 4. The hike starts in the town of Jordan, across the street from Cave Springs Cellars.
Switch Google Maps to Satellite mode to see the parking lot.
We will try to start the hike at 12:00 noon. Let's hope it does not rain this time.
On this hike, we will hike out to Calamus Estate Winery. We will stop for lunch at Balls Falls, and head back.
There are some other winerys in the area worth a visit. I like Stoney Ridge Winery on King Street, east of Jordan. I also checked out Di Profio Wines, south of Jordan, on 19th street.
This hike will be level 2 with some serious hills and stairclimbs. It will be fairly short, since it is late in the season, and we don't want to be caught out on the trail after dark.
There are a couple of reasonably priced pubs in the area where we can eat afterwards.
