Palgrave Forest and Wildlife Area provides over 300 hectares of forest, wetland and a varied set of geographical forms within the Humber River watershed on the Oak Ridges Moraine. A majority of this area is covered by a forest that provides a thriving habitat to many plants and animals with over 200 different species. 

Our hike is focused on walking, observing and enjoying nature for approximately 12 KMs. We shall maintain a steady pace of about 3.5 KM per hour. 

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 15, but since we are dependent on drivers, I have mentioned it to be 4. People on the wait list will be moved to the confirmed list as and when drivers sign up.
