Itinerary:

Forks of the Credit Provincial Park is where the cliffs and crevasses of the rugged Niagara Escarpment meet the rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine. The park features the excitement of the Credit River, as it narrows and rushes through a deep gorge, plunging over a falls. Geological features that were deposited or carved out by retreating glaciers including some kettle lakes surround the river. The park also includes some of the upland, rolling pasture land that is typical of much of southern Ontario.

We'll follow the main Bruce and Trans Canada trails. Distance covered will be approximately 8 km. We'll pick a nice spot to snack on the trail by the river and falls.

While this is not a slow-poke hike as such, it is fairly easy and we won't be going at any "great pace", so all participants will have no trouble staying with the group for the duration of the event.
