January 27, 2015

Weather:  Cloudy,  cold with light snow to begin, sunny and with minimal wind half way through.

We started at Rattlesnake Conservation Area by hiking the 2.8 km Rattlesnake Point Trail side trail to the main trail. We headed north along the canyon rim through oak and pine woods before turning right to Appleby Line at Steeles Avenue.

We walked along Appleby Line for about 500 metres and then crossed the road and hiked along the edge of a field parallel to the road. to Kelso Conservation Area. After a series of turns, we climbed to a wooded ridge. We continued along a forest track past a picnic area with washroom facilities.  We then headed along the escarpment past spectacular rocky lockouts with views to the east and north until we reached the top of the old quarry overlooking Kelso Lake.

The last hill was quite slippery and our 'Fearless Leader' Chose the easy way down. We picked up the second car and drove to the nearest Tim Hortons.
