Snowshoers enjoy hike through 'enchanted' Simcoe County Forest

Weekly Ganaraska Hiking Club event continues to grow in popularity, officials say

Despite the wacky, unpredictable weather in recent days, Tuesday was a good day for a hike through the woods.

Paul McCreath led a snowshoe hike to the Hutchison Tract of Simcoe County Forest, near Bass Lake Side Road and Line 7 North of Oro-Medonte Township.  

Conditions were surprisingly good in the bush. The snow was not too deep, and was not clumping despite barely sub-zero temperatures.  

A fine layer of ice coated the trees, making the forest especially enchanting.  

Tuesday’s group continues to grow with 16 hikers joining for the lively two-hour hike which featured lots of hills.  

The Ganaraska Hiking Club welcomes everyone. For more information, visit their website, and check out their calendar of hikes on the home page.
