DISTANCE: about 10 km

PACE: about 4.5 km/h but with LOTS of stops to watch the salmon (if they are present)

DIFFICULTY: D3

This is the time of year that the salmon head up the Humber River to spawn. We may see them jumping and swimming upstream.

This is not a photo hike, but if the salmon are jumping, we will be stopping a "few times" to watch for "a while".

If you don`t want to stop and watch the salmon jumping, this is not an event for you.


Please note that I have set the Maximum Group Size to 1 so all registrants automatically go to the waiting list.
Members on the waiting list who have confirmed in the NOTES section that they meet all the Conditions and will comply
with all the new Rules specified in the above Directive may then be added to the event, up to a maximum of 10 participants.
