Join Us for a Walk

By Ann Evans
Please join us this year as we again wind our way around the paths and trails of York region. We welcome new members to come out to meet new people and enjoy the company and fun conversations. In the fall and winter months walks will revert to a 10:00 a.m. start

Monday, 24th September
Boardwalk, St. John’s Side Road,  
If we are lucky we may see some interesting wild life in the surrounding marshy reeds as we travel the board walk.
Parking is just East of Yonge Street on the North side of St John’s side road.

Tuesday, 30th, October
Bender and Graves
This is a lovely, circular, wooded walk with some inclines and sandy paths. It is part of the York Regional Forest. Go East on Davis Drive from highway 404 to Kennedy Road. Turn North onto Kennedy (no exit sign) to parking area – about one km.

Wednesday, 21st November
Roger’s Reservoir
We need to check to see if they have finished the construction on this trail.  It was looking interesting last year. The paths are wider, flatter and run beside the Holland River. Park in the Green Lane parking lot, East of Main Street North. Entrance is opposite the East Gwillimbury Go Terminal.

Pine Orchard Farm

Several times now we have enjoyed a walk through the snowy trails near Pine Orchard Farms. The farm is located on the 16th Side road off Keele Street, North of Bloomington. The farm is clearly marked whether coming from the North or South on Keele.  We will begin the walk along a designated Oak Ridges Moraine Trail. Maybe bring your good singing voice as we have been known to break into song with a few carols!! The path is a little hilly in places so be sure to wear good walking shoes.

Wednesday, 23rd January 2019
Set aside this date for our January walk.
In the winter months we will return to walk the North and Southward bound paths of Fairy Lake as they are well maintained by the town and therefore safer.
