This Friday we’ll be meeting at the top of St. Mary’s Road. We’ll then hike to the powerlines. From there, we’ll follow the St. Georges and Baden Powell trails.
To get there, go north on Lonsdale, then turn right on Braemar Road East. Turn left (north) at St. Georges until you make a right turn at Balmoral Rd. Balmoral continues on to become St. Mary’s, which you’ll follow to the top near Woodale. Should be plenty of on street parking…..and easier to find than it sounds!
This hike is intermediate to intermediate plus with substantial elevation gain. It’s straight uphill in somewhat rough terrain to the power lines and continues uphill once into the trails before levelling off.
Make sure that you’re wearing appropriate hiking footwear and bring your poles.
Please join us at 9:15 with your Flex pass, Trail Trekker punch pass, or Rec.Centre annual pass. We’ll take a head count, then hit the trail at 9:30.
See you Friday!
If the weather forecasters are right, there is some extreme weather coming our way. It may not be favourable for hiking in the mountains! For this reason we have decided to change the location of Friday’s hike.
We’ll now be meeting at Delbrook Rec. Centre and hiking the upper Mosquito Creek area.
As usual we’ll meet at 9:15 and be ready to hike at 9:30. This is an easy/moderate hike.
Please spread the word to any other Trekkers who may not subscribe to this blog.
See you Friday!
