Itinerary:

Did you ever notice a hill on your right side while travelling to Niagara Falls around Grimsby? And felt the urge to go up there? If yes, you are just like me!!

Join this hike that starts at Beamer Falls Conservation (start), goes around the Grimsby hill, descends down by 100 mts and climbs back up by another 100 mts all the way. Most of the route will pass over a ridge, overlooking the Lake Ontario. The hike will end at the Mountainview Park Conservation Area (end). We shall maintain a brisk pace of around 4 KM per hour during the hike. A small 10 minute break could be taken for a quick snack depending on the time available.

Car Shuttle: We will have to shuttle cars, since this is a point to point one way hike (and not a loop). Exact logistics would be conveyed to the drivers, 2 days before the hike. 

Assembly at the carpool is at 7:20 AM and the departure at 7:30 AM

Team Size: The actual max team size is about 12, but since we are dependent on drivers, I have mentioned it to be 1. People on the wait list will be moved to the confirmed list as and when drivers sign up.
