Itinerary:
From the top of the Mill Creek Ravine we will hike on the lower forested gravel trails. Because the trails can be snow packed and icy, good traction boots are required. Part way through the hike (about half way down the ravine, 35 minutes into the hike) we will go for snacks and refreshments at The Shamrock Curling Club Lounge located directly off our planned route in Mill Creek (stop for about 45 Min). The lounge is upstairs separate from the arena (they accept Interac, cash, or credit card). They have a concession downstairs if you want food, which you can bring back upstairs to join the group.
We will then hike back to our cars at the start of the hike.
**Please be aware with wintery weather, the trail could be slippery in some sections.Ice cleats that go over your boots are recommended. These can be found at Mountain Equipment Coop, or other sporting stores.
You could encounter muddy, icy, snowy conditions, etc dress accordingly.

We are hoping for favourable weather but should temperatures be too cold (-23 Celsius or less, also factoring in severe wind chill), than this event may be cancelled. Please take note of the required items and come prepared for snow and the cold.

**If you choose to drink at the lounge, please drink responsibly**
