Point Farms Provincial Park

Level 2 moderate pace 1½  hours

We will plan to do a circuit, following the Old Farms north trail, then the Ravine Trail, descending steps to beach level. We follow the trail in the trees with lovely views of the lake, but protected. We then ascend to the top of the bluff and return on the south Old Farms trail.

The route may be changed according to trail conditions. There is lovely variety to this hike. Park at the entrance, but please call Anne to register in case there is a change in plan.
