Family Day Hike









We had a long weekend this week with a Monday holiday, so I took the opportunity to go for a short hike with some friends at Crothers Woods. It was actually pretty warm but it did start to snow somewhat heavily while we were walking. Other than making the trails a bit slippery, it was nice and made for some pretty pictures. I’m excited to go back in the spring and try out some of the other trails… it’s hard to believe that in a few months the landscape will be green and completely transformed!

The woods are pretty easy to get to from downtown – there’s a bus that runs from St Clair station, and it’s about a 15 minute ride, followed by a 10 minute walk. The walk to the park isn’t particularly nice (it’s a pretty industrial part of town), but it’s an easy walk nonetheless and worth it. The entrance is tucked away in the back of a Loblaws parking lot, which led to some wandering around confused before figuring out how to access the trail.

I hope you’re all keeping warm in the snowy weather!

Happy Friday, friends!

  3. Looks like a beautiful route for a hike! Unfortunately over here we’ve just been having rain and winds, no snow and thus no nice hiking.

      Thanks Tahnee! That’s too bad- crossing my fingers the weather cooperates a bit better for you this week!
