Join us for a Hilly Hike at Ardagh Bluffs!

Needs a location

Hello Hikers,

Join us for a mid-day hike at Ardagh Bluffs! This will now be a regular weekly event for those who wish to participate.

Note: I can not be there myself as organizer every weekend, but there are usually others who are familiar with the trails who will be. (If you plan on attending regularly please let me know)! Also post a comment below if you plan on attending so that everyone can confirm where to meet. Come on out!

I suggest meeting up at the Holly Community Centre at 171 Mapleton Ave, where there's lots of parking and a convenient place to wait for the group to gather.

The trail from that location is across the street, and starts down a bit of a hill.

There are some great trails in the Bluffs... a little hilly in places but with solid trails and nicely wooded. I'd rate it an intermediate to advanced hike (just based on the occasional hill).

For those who enjoy hiking this is a good workout with a great group in a beautiful environment.

Just RSVP to let others know you are coming, and post a comment below if you like. Enjoy the hike!

Estimated time: 1.5 + hours

Difficulty: Easy.
