Saturday October 17
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.
This time, 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 from the town of Jordan.
The parking lot extends from 19th Street to Main Street. On the opposite side of Main Street, you should see the Cave Springs winery. This is a winery hike!
We will try to start the hike at 11:45am. Let's hope it does not rain this time.
We will be hiking up the Twenty Mile river trail to Balls Falls. All of this is less than twenty miles. :) If the group is up for it, we will continue out to Vineland Winery. Then, we will hike back for dinner at one of the restaurants in Jordan. The Jordan House Tavern is a very likely destination.
This hike will be level 2 with some serious hills and stairclimbs. We will try for some decent kilometers, so you need to be in shape. It is Saturday. We can get home late.
