Don Valley Hike

I led a hike on Saturday. The day started with some light rain which kept the numbers down but 15 people showed up. As we hiked through Crothers' Woods the rain stopped and the sun came out. We ate lunch underneath the hydro wires just south of the Science Centre on a trail the mountain bikers call Party Atmosphere. While we were there a pair of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks stopped in a nearby tree and gave us a singing rendition of their pretty song.

The hike wound up near Yonge and Lawrence around 2:30 PM and a few of us stopped in at Mad Monty's for a beverage. An all around good day for a hike.

I posted some pictures of the hike on Flickr.

Hi John,

Let's agree to correct the misnomer - since there are no mountains in Toronto - could we please use the term "off-road cyclists". Or even "off-roaders".

Glad you enjoyed the trail. Aren't the fiddlehead ferns at the PA Junction just spectacular!?!?

Cheers,
Brian
