Long Sault Conservation Area is located north of Bowmanville. It is part of the Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority.
Pay and Display Parking is in effect at a cost of $5 per vehicle per day. Last spring, this turned out to be a machine that accepted only coins. Bring five bucks change. This is another good reason to carpool.
We meet at 11:15am.
Last time we were here, we did fifteen kilometers. There is lots of opportunity to shorten or lengthen the hike. It is our first fall hike, so we will take it easy. The pace will be moderate.
As of 2015Mar26, the website reports signs of black bear. We should be safe in a noisy group. Don't wander off alone. If you see a bear, don't approach it. Do not run away. You will trigger the bear's instinct to chase. Bring a telephoto lens.
Be safe in bear country.
Is anybody familiar with bars in Bowmanville?
I propose Maddy's Pub & Restaurant at 7 Division Street, Bowmanville.
