Write Up:

The expected thunderstorm never came and we were blessed with a gorgeous day. The faster folks walked at a 5.5km/hour pace and the slower folks walked at around 4 - 4.5km/hour. The terrain had a few small hills but was mostly flat. There was one major lookout point which provided a full view of Humber Valley and we stopped here for lunch.

A very surprising find on the hike were some wild orchids; they were small but beautiful. I wouldn't have thought orchids would survive in the wild in Caledon considering they had to deal with the -30° winter. Another interesting discovery was Glen Haffy Road, which is a part of the Glen Haffy side trail and was mostly shadowed by trees.

Special thanks to Jane C who did the sweeping for this hike.
