Events for Saturday (20th) and Sunday (21st)…

Greetings with hikes for Saturday (20th) and Sunday (21st).

SATURDAY 20th JUNE- Ted Harrison will be leading us on a linear hike from the Hayward Road and Pinnacle to Prosser Ridge. Cars will need to be moved, so masks should be an option while moving cars.
Rated strenuous 10 minus Kms. One long climb starts the hike then undulating terrain after that. Largely in the forest.
Meet time is at Petro-Can at Point Park in Riverview at 9:30.
Call Ted @ 852-0976

SUNDAY 21st JUNE- Sunday looks like a scorcher so I propose to do a hike around Mary’s Point where the temperature will be much more reasonable.
High tide is around 1:00 so we have to get underway early and may have to use the cross country portion of the trail.
Meet at 8:00 at Petro-Can or 9:00 (at the latest) at Mary’s Point.
Rated easy to moderate,6 to 7kms, but with a fair bit of rock hopping.
Call Paul G. @588-3041
