REPORT

 

We were 7 members for this hike. We parked the cars at the trail entrance and started to walk at 9:45 a.m.The sun was shining and the sky very blue, the wind a bit chilly.

We walked on the bike path which was in pretty goood condition except for some icy parts where some of us put their crampons on. We walked 11 km in 3 h including the time spent at the restaurant.

The brunch at Quinn's Inn was good and we finish our visit in St.Andrews by some photos taken in the historical cemetary located in front of the resturant.

No incident to report. No facilities except at the restaurant.
