Just over four weeks after my knee surgery and I was dying to get out into nature. To be completely accurate, I was dying to go camping, but for now, a hike in the woods would suffice.    The last two weekends I'd Ridden my bike over 10 km's each day and my knee felt really awesome! I was hiking with a friend and a five year old so I figured I should be able to [...]

Here it was, already Thanksgiving weekend. The summer had gone by and I had camped my way through all of it.  Since May I had been on 13 trips, 9 of them provincial parks, 7 parks I'd never been to. On top of that I had hiked 9 sections of the Trans Canada Trail along with countless other hiking trails and kayaked a large amount of creeks, streams, rivers and lakes!  I was one happy camper, literally!!!!

One day after work I decided to go for a hike at Woodend Conservation Area.  Woodend is one of my favourite 'quick & easy' places to hike. It is right beside a major highway and just on the outskirts of St. Catharines in Niagara On The Lake, Ontario, but it still feels like I am in the forest when I am there (minus the sounds of the traffic). The weather wasn't the best, but so far [...]

When I was a wee thing in my single digits, my family used to rent a cottage on Green Lake, Up North, Ontario.  LOL. My parents would spend alot of time fishing while we were there and my mom didn't like the boat so much. My dad and brother would fish in the boat and drop my mom and I off on the shore nearby.  My mom would fish and I would play in the [...]

A few years ago I was driving through the rolling hills of Pelham/Fonthill area and stumbled upon St. Johns Conservation Area.  From what I remember, it is a small conservation area, very scenic, with a trail that goes around a pond.  When I did research on the park in preparation of my visit, I found out it's much more than that. The park actually has quite a few trails, in addition to the one that [...]

Rockway Conservation Area is a 126 hectare park featuring the Bruce Trail and the Rockway Falls Side Trail.  It is a beautiful place to go for a hike, boasting many water features, great hiking and wildlife. On Saturday, July 11th, 2015, my friend Beth and I decided to go for an early evening hike at Rockway.  I am unsure if there are any other places to park, other than the lot I go to which [...]
