The Wednesday evening hike Jul. 4 will be along the City of Orillia waterfront/trail rather than Slessor Tract due to the heat.
Following the very successful Beginner Hike series, just concluded, Orillia Club is adding a regular Wednesday evening hike to our regimen of hikes. The hikes will go all summer, leaving from Willow Court at 6 pm, hiking from 6 – 8 pm.
We had perfect weather for Carol’s hike to Tiny Marsh although the western loop trail was a little wet in spots and we all got some practice climbing over downed trees.
The trail on the eastern loop was dry, but we were surprised to see that two observation towers had been cut down.
Most hikers brought their binoculars and many interesting spring birds were spotted.
Due to unforeseen circumstances and the poor conditions, Orillia Club’s planned snowshoe to Awenda scheduled for tomorrow, Jan. 21, 2018, is cancelled.
The snowshoe hike listed on the schedule for Orillia as Jan. 1, 2018, will actually be on Jan. 13, 2018.
