Date: Sunday October 14

Hike Leader: Bill Baird

This is on the Bruce Trail, out near Hamilton. We are doing a car shuffle, so a few extra cars will be appreciated.


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. Drive past Waterdown Road.
  5. Take the next exit, north on Highway 6.
  6. About two kilometers later, at the first set of traffic lights, turn right onto Highway 5, Dundas Street.
  7. Drive east thru most of town and turn right, south, on Mill Street.
  8. At bottom of the hill turn right into the parking lot. It is just past the overhead train track bridge.

Directions to Hike Start

We will start the car shuttle about 11:30. Please go Waterdown first. We need the cars for the shuttle.


We will hike north on the side trails to the main Bruce Trail. Then we will turn right and take the trail to Waterdown. It is only about ten kilometers, but is very hilly. The gorge at the end is spectacular. Also, the Highway 6 road detour has been eliminated by a tunnel.
