A little bit of Ludlum vibe! This Country Cruise offers the options of rail trail riding and some hill climbing all in the lovely countryside northwest of Hamilton. The short route has 9km on the rail trail before lunch in Ancaster. The long route passes through St. George and Ancaster with the rail trail being optional. Both routes do Clara's climb out of Dundas.
