Itinerary:
Due to shortage for carpool drivers for a linear hike requiring car shuttle, the hike is changed to 'there and back' hike within Dundas Valley Conservation, starting at Filman Road. The revised distance is about 15 km. The plan is to stop, by the waterfalls (Shaver, Tiffany, Sherman and Canterbury) for nature enjoyment and photos. Difficulty rating is also changed to D3. However the hiking pace to be about 4.5 km/hr over hilly, rocky and muddy terrain.

Please ensure you're able to hike the distance over hilly/rocky/rough/rugged terrain before you sign up.

Please arrive 15 min before carpool departure time so that we can be on the road on time. Don't sign up if you need to be back home by specific time.

HIKE DETAILS: See note about the hike. Hopefully we get to enjoy the beautiful spring day, budding trees, flowing water and spring flowers. Do be prepared to hike through mud, mud, mud and more mud.

The hiking pace will be approximately 4.5 km per hour, with slower pace on the uphills. I am a SLOW hiker, making frequent stops to take photos particularly when there are waterfalls, and generally enjoy the scenery/surroundings:) Please be prepared to respect my style of hiking. Thanks.

We will hike as a group, and thus, wait as necessary for everyone, If you think you'll have uncontrollable urges to be constantly on the move or to sprint ahead, this is NOT an event for you. Speedsters will be put at the back of the line.

Please ensure you can hike the distance over the uneven, rocky and steep hilly terrain, and at the specified pace BEFORE you sign up.

This is a linear hike involving a car shuttle, hike will be modified or postponed if not enough drivers sign up. Also, additional participants will be added as space permits. Carpool drivers could be added preferentially to the attendee list.

If you're travelling by TTC to the carpool location, you're responsible for taking into consideration the TTC schedule, any service disruptions, etc in order to arrive on time. Also note, we will meet at the Passenger Pick Up location that's off Subway Crescent (not any other place at Kipling station.. ask TTC staff if you're not sure and need direction.

BE PREPARED: We will hike as a group. Again, if you think you may be sprinting ahead... don't sign up! We will be hiking rain, snow snow, or sunshine.
