Hikes

 

Below is a partial list of hikes I have enjoyed. Hopefully this list will continue to grow as I process accumulated data. Some of the hikes I have led while others are ones where I was a participant (e.g. walking across Scotland).

A few of them are links that will take you to more detailed information such as GPS tracks and map images. You may wish to try some of these hikes with family and friends (not alone). Or join me and other volunteer hike leaders who regularly lead hikes for organizations such as the Grand Valley Trails Association, the Avon Trail, the Guelph Hiking Club, the Bruce Trail Conservancy, the Thames Valley Hiking Association, and the Elgin Hiking Trail Club. See Hike Ontario and the Ontario Trails Council for other suggestions.

If you are looking for relatively short hikes, check the Short Hikes web page of the Avon Trail.
