Hiking Palgrave
HIKE IN PALGRAVE CONSERVATION AREA
Palgrave
POSTPONED FROM Sep 13 BY MOTHER NATURE!
Join hike leader Mary B. for a leisurely hike approximately 1 1/2 – 2 hrs. on fairly flat terrain with a few small elevations in Palgrave Forest and Wildlife area. Please wear hiking boots and bring water and lunch - we will stop to enjoy our lunch at about the halfway mark on the trails. We meet at Tim Horton's in downtown Bolton. Please note there are several Tim Horton's on Hwy 5O - but the one we need is in a small plaza with a TD bank and Tim's just north of King St. on the west side. The $5 UKC levy will apply. Please have a $5 bill or prewritten cheque ready payable to UK Connexion.

After meeting at Tim's, we drive for about 20 minutes to the forest just north of Palgrave on the west side. Following the hike, we will head back to Bolton to the Toby Jug pub (directions will be given) hopefully to enjoy some refreshment as the patio has now been extended.

Mt. Pleasant Cemetery
AFTERNOON STROLL IN MT. PLEASANT CEMETERY
Yonge/Davisville
We will meet at the Yonge/Davisville entrance to the cemetery. You can access it a little south of Chaplin/Davisville and then take the steps on the east side of Yonge by the Kay Gardner Belt-line Bridge (well-marked) to get on the belt-line and then a little east to the cemetery entrance where Christine will be waiting. Or turn left on Merton St. (one street S after Balliol on Yonge) and cut through the first side street on the right, to the cemetery entrance – saves walking up the steps. TTC: Davisville, cross to S/E corner of Yonge and follow as above. We will stroll through, looking out for interesting headstones then we'll walk eastward for about an hour. Bring a snack for when we take a break.

IMPORTANT: Register by Sep 27. Please wear comfortable shoes, bring water AND A MASK! For those driving, there are a number of side streets off of Yonge/Chaplin to park. The $5 UKC levy will apply. Please have a $5 banknote or a prewritten cheque payable to UK Connexion. Contact Christine at christineukc23@gmail.com or 416-256-5851. She will furnish her cell number when you call to register.
