Okay, you've already caught me (don't gloat). "Hard Labour" is a bit of a misnomer - this will be pretty moderate.

We'll revisit my second outing with the club: Terra Cotta Conservation Area. On our schedule is 18.9km of total hiking at a reasonably brisk 4kph pace. You must be able to maintain this pace over uneven terrain for 4.5-5 hours of hiking; besides a lunch break we won't be making many stops.

We hiked Canada Day and the Civic Holiday. It's time to complete the trifecta and hike Labour Day :)

Note that there is a possibility it will rain on Monday. If you sign-up, you must be willing to come rain or shine. Bring the inflatable vest located conveniently beneath your seat as necessary.

After we finish, and depending on the tyranny of the majority, we can stop for a bite to eat or drink. There is kind of a nifty cidery nearby that we visited after one of Victor's hikes last fall. Things of various sorts to eat and drink there...
