On Friday July 7th 2017, 10 of the ladies from “Take a HIKE” Caledon Ladies Hiking and Meet up Group hiked about 10 km on the Bruce Trail from 7th Line to Hockley Road which is the fifth hike required to receive the CHBTC Canada 150, Historical Hike Series Badge.
This is not a loop hike and requires having cars at both ends. The trails are moderate with lots of climbs and descends going though forested areas, meadows and beautiful flora.
A large part of the Bruce Trail in this area goes through private properties including Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi and Hockleycrest owned by Sally Cohen and Dave Moule, who does an immaculate job maintaining the trail. Dave is a long time Bruce Trail Volunteer and has held many positions over the years. He is also the recipient of the Ontario Heritage Award for Lifetime Achievement.
