This hike is approximately 15 km that weaves
up and down the Niagara Escarpment with varying
degrees of difficulty. There is a mix of urban
and natural terrain as we cut through Hamilton's
oldest and newest neighbourhoods to get to the
Bruce Trail, and climb steel staircases that
connect lower and upper Hamilton.
We will meet at the Hamilton GO Station
located on Hunter Street between James and John
Street. Please meet me at platform 9.
We will stop for a snack/lunch break along
the trail. Please bring something with you as
there is nowhere to stop for food along the way.
We are also hiking through either woods or
residential areas and there are no facilities
outside of our starting point and ending point.
You may also want to bring something to sit on
such as a piece of insulated foam/pad or a
portable chair that is small, light and easy to
carry for when we stop for a break.
We'll end our hike at the Cat and Fiddle Pub,
which is right around the corner from the GO
