Itinerary:

It's been a couple of years since I last hiked this part of the trail, but it's a fun one. Here's my (and your) chance to go. (Websters is my favourite set of falls since you can walk behind the curtain of it. It may be slightly past the point in autumn where it's still fun to get splashed, but if at all reasonable I will still do so ; )

Now, I know that it is hallowe'en, so I will be keeping a sensitive eye to the time so that people who have plans will be able to make them. But if we meet at Downsview at 7:30am, you should expect to be back at Downsview before 4pm. (Give or take.)

We will be shuttling cars for this hike, I intend to do just under 18km total and to set a brisk pace of around 4.5km/h. (Just enough to keep me awake out there on the trails) If you're going to sign up, please keep the pace and length in mind and be ready to move quick.

That said, we'll of course take time to admire the falls and anything else fun we see along the way.

After the hike, depending on the tyranny of the majority, our drivers, and hallowe'en plans (which I promise great compassion for) we may stop somewhere for a drink or some food before heading back home.

P.S.> Given the day, I will bring candy to share. "Is this just an excuse for you to eat candy, Andrew?" Yes.

P.P.S.> The waterfall count is 5. I plan to hike by: Tiffany, Washboard, Sherman, Websters, and Tews (I expect to stop 2.5km short of Borer's, but I'm open to suggestion if the group is keen.)
