Hike Description: For this week’s 5@5 hike enjoy a leisurely walk across some lovely farmland and peaceful forest to visit the St. Andrew’s Stone Church and its cemetery. The estimated time to complete this hike is very generous to allow for exploration of the gravestones of some of the Scottish, Irish, and English immigrants who lived in the area in the mid-1800s. This 5.2 km route, from Nicola Ross’ book Caledon Hikes Loops and Lattes, follows a portion of the main Bruce Trail as well as the Mountainview Road Side Trail, and includes some on-road hiking. No dogs please, as they are not permitted on this section of the Bruce Trail.
