Date: November 4, 2015

Section from the Devil's Glen Provincial Park parking lot on Hwy 124, to the Pretty River Access Trail at km 47.1. A feature of this section is the Standing Rock and Caves.

We left Oakville at 7 am and drove into fog on Hwy 10. There was an accident south of Orangevlle that resulted in us losing about half an hour of hiking time. To save time Steve and Ann dropped the the hikers off at the Devil's Glen Prov. Park to start their hike. They then proceeded to park the second car at the north end of the hike, returned to Devils Glen and struck out in 'Hot Persuit' to catch the rest of us. Lovely fall weather +/- 20C and sunny.
