At this time, we are accepting "guest" registrations. Please see the TBN website for instructions on how to register as a guest.

Registration will be open 6 days before the event.  We will open the site for registrations the Monday morning before the hike at 9.30 am. I realize this can be a pain but it will help prevent people from registering for all future hikes.  It will be just like the rides that we have been doing this season.

The hike starts in the Speyside Woods heading north over rocky undulating terrain to the Limehouse Conservation area.  The trail cuts through the Escarpment cliffs in an area know as "Hole in the Wall"  There are ladders to climb down the Escarpment rock through fissures and crevices providing a glimpse into the area's geological past.  There are also several stiles to climb over.  The trail also passes the remains of limestone kilns which produced the lime used as a binder in mortar and was used in the building of Toronto.
