So, trying out another new outta town hike today. This time, was hoping to take the crew to four waterfalls in the Hamilton/Stoney Creek Area, including Glover, Felkers, Buttermilk & Albion Falls.

On this hike, I'm expecting a couple challenging climbs, but your reward we be some of the finest waterfalls in the region.

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!!!
