Event for Saturday…

Greetings all, i see that there is not a hike scheduled for this Saturday the 30th November. I am planning a hike near Mary’s Point, not Mary’s Point, but next to Mary’s Point. It will be out on the dykes for part of the hike past islands, a whirlpool, and finally out to the coast for lunch then back through the forest for a bit out to a path then back on the dykes and back to the vehicles. The terrain is flat for the most part and the hike would be rated as moderate and should take about 2.5 to 3 hours. This hike is weather dependent to a degree, the weather looks like cool and breezy with sun in the PM.

If the wind is really strong I may change the hike to one that is more in the woods, stay tuned.

Meet time is 10:00 at Petro-Can in Riverview by Point Park or the Old bank Museum in Riverside/Albert at 10:45-10:55.

Update for Saturday…

Greetings all, I see that there is not a hike on Saturday the 23rd of November. After checking out Shepody Mtn. last weekend I am prepared to lead a hike up to the top of Shepody Mountain this Saturday. It would be rated as moderate to strenuous and would last about 3 hours 15 minutes to 3 hours 45 minutes.

Meet time would be 10:00 at Petro-Can in Point Park in Riverview. Seconday meet spot would be at the lower site parking lot at the Hopewell Rocks at 10:35. The second meet spot is because I will not be at the Petro-Can and I will need to lead us to the parking spot where we start up the mountain.

Weather looks like sun/cloud, plus 1 degree, but with a reasonably substantial wind.

Call Paul @381-0397

Hike for Sunday November 17th…

I propose to lead a hike this Sunday November 17th at the venerable old Hopewell Rocks with maybe a short walk next door at Ponderosa Pines and out on to the dykes. The meet time would be at 10:00 A.M. at the lower site at the Hopewell Rocks. The hike should be classified as easy to moderate. The weather looks scrumptious, a degree or two below zero, sunny and very little wind. Call Paul 381-0397.

Thanks,

 

Paul
