Hikes Fall/Winter 2023-2024

Group Hikes

After several years of planning, publishing and leading group hikes and after the pandemic, I am not publishing group hikes often. A sample of a few group hikes I have led or may lead appears below. If you are looking for ideas for hikes, check my listings at Master Index to Hikes.



Date to be announced – Pinnacle Hill Loop, Kitchener. Level 2/3. Pace: 2-3 km/h (slow-moderate). 5 - 6 km
Leaders: Jamie & Jan. Depart at 10:00 a.m. from the Walter Bean Trail parking lot at 43.389878492746114, -80.4216362317471 (Marguerite Ormston Trailway, intersection of Doon South Dr & Homer Watson Blvd). This loop walk follows parts of the Grand Valley Trail and community trails passing through the Pinnacle Hill Natural Area. There will be short segments where we will be bushwhacking (creating the trail) and also some steep, long climbs. We will do the steep climbs slowly. Trekking poles are recommended as well as sturdy hiking boots. Gators are suggested if the conditions are damp. Bring water and a snack. Check here about 7:30 a.m. the day of the hike for any possible last-minute change(s)
