We started out in the fog along 15 Sideroad across Hwy 25 at Speyside and turned left into the Speyside Forest.

The Trail crosses the Fourth Line, we climb a stile and continue along the edge of
farmer's fields.

Lunch break.

The Trail turns left and follows the 5th Line for 100 m, turns right and climbs a rock face into the Limehouse Conservation Area.

The main Trail heads past a series of rock fissures before dropping through the "Hole-in-the-Wall" on two ladders.

The Trail follows the bed of the old Toronto Suburban Radial Railway and then crosses the Black Creek near the remains of an old mill.

We pass a lime kiln and a restored powder magazine before reaching our cars parked at the Limehouse Memorial Hall.
