Hike at Eramosa Karst Conservation Area

Saturday, April 22, 2017
EARTH DAY!
Found 2 geocaches
Approx. 3.5km

Determined to use my Hamilton Conservation Annual pass, I picked the Eramosa Karst Conservation Area to explore. Mild trails, easy to walk or run. Tall, tall trees and hills.

I discovered various caves along the trails… I’m not a cave person, so just glancing into some of them was just fine by me!

Every time I step out of my house I realize just how lucky we are that all these conservation areas are here, and so close by. I absolutely love it and never want to take it for granted.

Hike #23 – Crane Park

Hike #23

Crane Park

Guelph, Ontario

January 29, 2016

Sunny, sunny, sunny dayโ€ฆ 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 โ€œNO PARKING; Snowplow Turnaroundโ€ only; I guess Iโ€™ll have to try again in the spring ๐Ÿ™‚

The trees in the forested part I walked throughโ€ฆ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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