Hiking to Hilton Falls

Gord and I went for a hike this afternoon on one of the trails in the Hilton Falls Conservation Area, about an hour NW of us.

It was a Singles Horizons event. There were about 20 of us and some of us brought our dogs (we brought KC). KC had a great time ... there was lots for her to sniff!

We did the Hilton Falls Trail, which is 4km.


There is a lovely waterfall along the way where we stopped for a half hour. You have to walk over some rocks to get to the staircase to get down to it but it's worth it!

Gord went behind the Falls ... can you see him?

What's left of the sawmill from the 1800s

The water that flows by the old sawmill, next to the Falls

We climbed back up above the Falls ... here's looking down.

Walking back ...


At the end of the trail, looking across at the Niagara Escarpment.


LeeAnn, the owner of Single Horizons, had lunch waiting for us ... sandwiches, salads, fruit and cookies!

Back in the city!
