So, this is the first in a series of frozen waterfall hikes, I'd like to do in 2019.

Today's hike will take us past the majestic lookout of Dundas Peak as well as two waterfalls in Tews Falls & Websters Falls for a 9 KM loop.

The greatest challenge will be the 100 meter climb right near the start of the hike. In the past, this narrow trail has been quite icy, so I highly recommend icers and hiking boots.

Pack a lunch, we'll stop in the picnic area around Webster's Falls for a break.

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 :)
