Walking Tours of Kirkendall
More tours, for those who like the Bruce Trail, or who missed the first History Tour this year, or who love food! (The History tour was packed the first time ’round, so you’ll definitely want to register.)
Thursday, October 30- 7pm
Join Richard Reble, retired teacher and Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club hike leader for an invigorating night hike on an easy section of the Bruce Trail. Thrill to the scream of a hunting screech owl, the dry rustle of autumn leaves, the mystery of dark shadows in the woods, the abject terror inspired by thoughts of all manner of things that go bump in the night!
Meet at the south end of Dundurn Street at the foot of the escarpment staircase. Hike is 1.5 -2hrs long. Pub stop to follow.
Please dress for the weather and be sure to bring water.
10:00 AM to 11:30 AM Join local historian Bill Manson for a guided walk around the heritage community of Locke Street South. We will explore the history of the area, including its residential, commercial, and industrial development. As well, we will explore the development of historical transportation infrastructures that both promoted and hindered the sustainability of this unique neighbourhood. The 1.5 hour walk will commence at the southeast corner of Main and Locke streets at 10 am sharp, rain or shine. Please dress appropriately for the weather and the walk.
Registration is required.
