Itinerary:

It's Spring (or supposed to be) it's probably time for a hike :) Much too long since I've been out in the woods seriously!

I've picked something moderate-hefty for today at Forks of the Credit. It's a nice area, along the Credit River and we should have some good views.

We'll set a strong pace of at least 4.5kph over approximately 20km. The terrain is hilly in parts (and I will be going up the big hill of the Quarryman's Side Trail!) So please feel comfortable with that distance and pace before signing up.

We'll meet at the carpool at 9:45am. Subway service doesn't begin until 9am, so factor this into your plans, if you live further out it may mean bus service first. Sorry! If it makes you feel better, I'd rather be starting even earlier. Okay, maybe I don't understand what makes people feel better.

Keep that in mind too :)

I'll be hoping for sunshine and cool breezes, but regardless of rain the hike will take place. See you then!
