Celebrate Canada Day with a hike

Last year, twenty-six people and four dogs took-up the challenge to hike to the star on Observation Mountain as a celebration of Canada Day.

It was a mixed group of youth, experienced hikers and first-timers but everyone enjoyed it and were proud of their achievement.

This year the third annual climb is planned:  an easy route from Copper Ridge. Next year, there will be two starting points, one at Barbara Ann Park and the other at Copper Ridge where the climb is less arduous.  Why not give it a try?

All agreed this was a special way to celebrate our nation’s birthday and would recommend it to friends as a good way to kick-off the Canada Day festivities.

As a final note, there is a hiking group that meets each Wednesday and Saturday at the north-east corner of the Recreation Centre parking lot.
