Please scroll down to view walk info (updated July/ 30 /2015)

 

The Lively Dragon participants are lead by "Shirley" or one of the other group leaders. Every weekend it is a different location in the Hamilton / Burlington area. There are many beautiful places to see that are ours to discover.

The walks are usually 10 km on excellent trails, parts of the Bruce Trail and others in the area.

 

A walking pole could be helpful..  Water is important even in colder weather.  Please stay hydrated.   Hiking is amazing and refreshing.  .   

If you have questions about winter hiking email walks@lively-dragon.com me your question and I will try to answer it.


Sat Aug. 1st 2015 - 0730hrs - Chedoke Rail Trail
==========================================
You'll be meeting/parking on Hillcrest Ave, at the base of the Chedoke Rail 
Trail. From Aberdeen Ave (not far from  Dundurn), take either Beulah or 
Mountain Ave up  to Hillcrest (see the attached map). From there you get on 
the trail and walk straight up to the pedestrian bridge that goes over the 
403 - about 5 km. Turn around and start heading back down. On your way up, 
you will have passed the entrance to the Iroquois Trail. On your way back 
down, deviate to your left and take that trail for a change of scenery - 
keep following the trail, close to the escarpment, it eventually connects 
back in with the original rail trail that you came up on. Breakfast? 
Remember 'Your Place'? You know, the one with the leaky window...it's now a 
Wimpy's...you could always give that a try. Or maybe head over to our 'ole 
time favourite, The Maple Leaf....take a group vote before you set out on 
the walk. This walk will probably take you less than the usual 2 1/2 hours - 
and it's 'do-able' for those who are visually impaired.

  We're heading into another hot weekend - hopefully the humidity won't be 
too high. Fill your plastic water bottle 2/3 full and freeze it the night 
before - hopefully you'll have nice cold water for at least part of the 
walk. And make sure you order a round of cold water for the group when you 
sit down for breakfast - get that water in before the coffee. Have fun...and 
see you on the 8th.      kathy



Sat July 11th 2015 - **0730 hrs** - University Plaza/Monarch Trail

========================================================

Monarch Trail. You’ll be meeting at the very back of University Plaza (Osler Rd, see the attached map), behind the Shoppers Drug Mart. From there the group will decide whether they want to walk the H-B rail trail first or get on the Monarch trail. You need to allow 2 1/2 hours for this walk as well as time for breakfast at The Maple Leaf Pancake House. This walk is perfectly do-able for those with impaired vision.

 

  Temperatures this past week have been up and down like a toilet seat! By Saturday we should be back into hot temperatures…sunshine included. Bring extra water and don’t forget the bug/tick spray. Have fun and see you when I get back.
