Go Take a Hike!
Whether we like it or not, fall is here once again. The kids are back in school, the weather is starting to cool down and life speeds up from the slowness of summer.
Now is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the more comfortable weather. Hiking is an activity that can combine social time and exercise with enjoying nature.
Living in Southern Ontario means it is never far to some fantastic trails. The Bruce Trail, Dundas Valley Conservation Area, Ancaster to Brantford Rail Trail, Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail, and RBG lands are all easily accessible with parking. Some trails such as Waterdown’s Wetlands Trail (accessible at Joe Sams Leisure Park on Hwy 5) are also wheelchair accessible.
Even if it is cool out, make sure to take some water, layer your clothes for comfort and most importantly, stay on the trail. Hiking in a group is best, but if you must hike alone, make sure someone knows when and where you are hiking.
And the best part about hiking – it is easy to make it a family activity. Get your kids up from the computer and outside.
