WHAT THE HECK IS THE HOLE IN THE WALL? Well it a cool rock formation in Limehouse Conservation area.

However, to check out this formation, we're not gonna just drive there and look at it, we'll going to hike to it and back.

This is a moderate to intermediate hike that involves some rocky areas, uneven terrain and I can promise you there will be some muddy areas, hiking boots or hiking shoes are a good idea.

Total distance is approx. 16 km and you must be willing to walk the entire distance as there will not be any drop offs.

We will take a break on trail for lunch.

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 choosing to just meet at the event (instead of the carpool), please come on time, because we will not wait for you if you are late.

Also, there are no washrooms at the start point of this hike, but there is a Tim Hortons just north of the 401
