We will meet at 1:00PM at the parking lot at Dawson Park and will leave at 1:10PM for the hike.

From Dawson Park, we will head west through Riverdale to Grierson Hill through Louise McKinney Park to the Low Level Bridge (we may check out the funicular along the way). From the south side of the river, we’ll head east through Cloverdale (we can have a peek at the Accidental Beach), hike up the long hill to Forest Heights then down along Rowland Road to Dawson Bridge back to the parking lot.

Just to let you know that there are a few hills on this walk and will be on paved paths.

To recognize me at the meeting place, I will be driving a silver Toyota Rav4 and wearing a royal blue EOC baseball cap, or check out my profile on the volunteers page.
