Date:Sunday May 15
Hike Leader:Jennifer Rowbotham
Difficulty:Level 2
Start at Trailhead:11:30

We will be doing a car shuttle on the Bruce Trail near Hamilton. We will meet at Grindstone Falls. We will take some of the cars out to the parking area up Guelph line, and then we will hike back.

Directions to Grindstone Falls

The parking lot at Grindstone is tiny. Let's carpool. From our meeting point at Yonge and York Mills...

  1. Take Highway 401 to Highway 403.
  2. Take Highway 403 to its (temporary) end at the QEW, and go west on the QEW.
  3. Near Hamilton, the QEW splits into two expressways. Stay to the right, Highway 403. Do not take the left lanes. They are the QEW as it goes over the Burlington Skyway toward Niagara.
  4. Exit at Waterdown Road and drive north. At some point, you go up a hill and then come back down again.
  5. The parking lot is on the left side, just as you are about to reach a railroad bridge.
  6. Park in the parking lot!

We start the carpool at 11:30am. Google Maps directions. According to Google, the address is "150 Mill St S, Hamilton, ON L0R"
