12 Aug 2017 All Day
Leader: Jakob Mueller
Meet: 7 am at Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre (northeast corner of parking lot, Richmond Road at Assaly Road, near Pizza Pizza)
Shaw Woods is one of eastern Canada’s premier examples of an old growth maple/beech/hemlock forest, carefully protected for generations. Hikes will cover some moderately rugged ground, with numerous observation stops; it should not be overly strenuous for most active people. People may also choose a shorter trail, or just sit at the lookout and watch the eagles. Admission and parking on site are free. Visitor Guides that describe various trails can be purchased on site for $2 each or printed for free from www.shawwoods.ca or from Shaw Woods Facebook. Shaw Woods is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, charitable organization. Visitors are invited to make a small donation toward Shaw Woods Outdoor Education Centre for guided educational outings. Pack a lunch and everything you need for a full day; we will probably be back in Ottawa around 5:30 pm.
