There's an abandoned rail path the goes from Evergreen Brick Works, past Crothers Woods, and... well, ends at a secret location! We'll travel to this mysterious location and back!

We'll start at Castle Frank station, down towards Evergreen Brick Works, where we'll meet up with the abandoned rail path. We'll follow the rail path as far as it is safe to do so. I suspect we will have to backtracked, but that's what's exciting about exploring.

We'll head back to Castle Frank station in as direct a fashion as possible.

If I had to guess how long the route is I'd say it'll be between 10 - 11 km, which should take about two and a half hours but since we're exploring it might be a little longer. Please be aware of this when making plans after the event.

It is strongly recommended that you wear long pants as we will be walking along an overgrown trail
