Throwback: September 2016 Hikes at Walker Woods, Cawthra Mulock NR, Heber Down CA, and Nashville CR

I had a rather productive first year of hiking. September came with the cooler weather and I managed to maintain my weekly goals. This month in 2016 I visit Walker Woods, Cawthra Mulock Nature Reserve, Heber Down Conservation Area and Nashville Conservation Reserve.

Walker Woods

Merely McCool - Walker Woods Trail Map Walker Woods is a cross roads of quite a few trails and hiking spaces. In here, you’ll find the Great Trail and the Oak Ridges Trail, as it winds through Walker Woods and Glen Major Forest, among other hiking areas. There is a lot to explore here and I suggest you give yourself a good chunk of time. Make a day of it! Pack a picnic.

This area is not as large as others I’ve visted but still very pretty and makes for a nice little while out in nature. Bring your camera because there are a lot of beautiful views along the way.

This conservation area has a nice looping trail through beautiful wooded areas and over babbling brooks. You can even following the connecting trailing in to a neighbouring park in Whitby.

Nashville is a wonderful hiking area close to the city. Unfortunately, this is one of my hikes where my pictures were not so lucky to make the jump from camera to computer. Just means I’ll have to re-visit this lovely trail sometime.
