Google Maps sends you up Highways 410 and 10. You drive through Orangeville, and watch for the signs. We know that the signs on Airport Road are prominent. We don't know what the landmarks are from the west side.


The hike will be thirteen to fifteen kilometers with lots of hills. Wear your hiking boots. Bring lots of water. Be ready for a workout.
