Meet at the small parking lot at the NW end of Groat Bridge - see the directions below. I will be wearing a royal blue EOC cap and standing by a silver Toyota RAV4.

We will walk west along the MacKinnon Ravine trail, as far west as it goes (just short of 149th Street). At that point, we will turn around and head back to the parking lot. Depending on the time, we may head east for a bit before returning to the cars.

Dogs are very welcome on this hike, please remember to include them on the registration!
