NOTE: THE CARPOOL LEAVES KIPLING STATION @ 10:00 AM

So, I've wanted to lead a hike to Mount Nemo Conservation Area for several years, so here's my chance to give it a go.

Mount Nemo Conservation Area has some amazing views from the top of the escarpment as well as some amazing rock fissures to view. The distance of the hike is approximately 8 KM.

Greatest challenge will be the 100 meter climb right near the start of the hike. Also since it's just the beginning of spring, I'm expecting it to be muddy.

Individuals willing to drive will get priority on the wait list, if required.

DRIVERS, WHEN YOU SIGN UP, PLEASE ANSWER THE CARPOOL QUESTION IN REGARDS TO THE AMOUNT OF PASSENGERS YOU CAN TAKE IN YOUR CAR, or else you may be moved to the wait list until this is completed!!!

For those of you who are choosing to meet at the event, please try to arrive on time.

Cool beans :)
