Hike #23 – Crane Park

Hike #23

Crane Park

Guelph, Ontario

January 29, 2016

Sunny, sunny, sunny day… was incredibly deceiving! It was -10C but -17C with the windchill. Just have to dress warm and get out there, which I did.

I was actually looking for another trail when I found Crane Park. Parking for one of the entrances to the Niska Trail was signed β€œNO PARKING; Snowplow Turnaround” only; I guess I’ll have to try again in the spring πŸ™‚

The trees in the forested part I walked through… just cracked so loudly I was sure with just one gust they were going to collapse down onto me. In this video you can also hear the baby squirrels squawking πŸ™‚

Crane Park is a leash-free area, and it made me (again) wish I had a hiking dog. One day:)

Hike #4 Breslau Side Trail

Today was a quick hike (4/52). A friend discovered a new side trail to the Hopewell Trail I did yesterday, so I thought it would be perfect for today. A 300 metre side trail through the trees, still very new and not much to it but a few branches and flashes to mark the path.
Squirrels, chipmunks, and red squirrels were not happy and made sure to chirp at me the whole time πŸ™‚
