Let's try this one again...this time, there is no forecast of a thunder storm.

Description: From the Visitor Centre parking lot, we will be going west, using the unpaved trails as much as possible which will lead us to Glennfield day use area where we will be turning back. This area of the park is mostly flat  If we are lucky, we may see great blue herons near a bridge by the creek.

Distance: approx. 8.6 km return - 2.5 hrs

Pace: moderate

What to bring:

- water

- bug spray (be prepared, lots of bugs this year)

- comfortable shoes, NO flip flops please

- snacks (optional)

This event will take place rain or shine, please dress appropriately.

NOTE: the pathway is shared by other walkers, runners and cyclists. Please be considerate and stay on the right side of the pathway.

YES Dogs can come but please only on leash.

Please note that the Visitor Centre will be closed by the time we will get there so we won't be able to use the facilities.

    Clouds/rain went by my neck of the woods just 30 minutes ago. The sun is out again. Yeah. I agree with Gisele, it should be fine by 6:30.

      I am out on Lake Midnapore in a kayak right now. The storm has passed over and the sun is shining once again.
