Bruce Trail: 4 Line to 2 Line EHS (Plus Griffith Ravine Side Trail)

It’s the last day of 2018, which means this is the last hike of the year. I decided to spend it on the Bruce Trail, in Mono, Ontario. I also tried to get up to watch the last sunrise of the year. I did mange to get up, put a jacket on and head out […]

Dundas Valley Conservation Area

Today is the day I get myself out of the house again! I managed to convince myself to get up and go to Dundas Valley Conservation Area. I actually headed out to Christie Lake, but apparently all those gates are closed. “Closed for the season” – it’s practically April out here! I have been hibernating […]

Mount Nemo Conservation Area

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I spent my time with family in Brampton. First for a big bash on Christmas Eve, then dinner and presents on Christmas Day. Boxing Day is my chance to escape now! Out to Burlington I head to cross Mount Nemo off my list. Mount Nemo Conservation Area is […]

Borer’s Falls CA & Rock Chapel Sanctuary

It’s a beautiful sunshine-y day out there which makes it a lot easier to get out of bed to explore. Today I head out to Hamilton to check out Borer’s Falls Conservation Area, and Rock Chapel Sanctuary. I parked Sully on Valley Road. There’s a small road side area, for maybe three vehicles if the […]

Happy Valley Forest (Plus Humber Source Woods)

Happy December! I feel like the second half of this year has just flown by. Could be because I was dealing with medical issues for several weeks (and ongoing) and didn’t get to go hiking NEARLY as much as I would normally like. But I got out today! And went to the happiest place on […]
