Guided Bus Hike: GREAT FALLS / GRINDSTONE CREEK ~ Sat, Nov 9

Please, sign up directly at TOTAL Meetup:


*** Scenic Fall Hike: GRINDSTONE CREEK / WATERDOWN ***

Let's enjoy another scenic hike in the gorgeous Niagara Escarpment!

Much of the trail of this hike is along the rushing water of Grindstone Creek as the water tumbles over the Great Falls and rushes down over a rocky creek bed forming numerous rapids in the creek below.

Grindstone Creek is one of five creeks within the Hamilton Harbour / Burlington Bay watershed. Shaped by glaciers, its watershed is approximately 90 square kilometers in size. Its headwaters originate near Harpers Corners in north Flamborough, traverses the Niagara Escarpment near Waterdown, winds through Hidden Valley in Burlington before emptying into Hamilton Harbour / Burlington Bay. It carries about 14% of the natural water that flows into Hamilton Harbour / Burlington Bay.

The Grindstone watershed falls within the northernmost limit of the Carolinian Forest Zone in Southern Ontario. It includes the greatest diversity of wildlife of any Carolinian Forest Zone, including species found nowhere else in Canada. Length: 12 Km.
