Ballyduff Trails Nature Walk
September 15 @ 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Ballyduff Trails Nature Walk, Sunday September 15th, 1-4:30 p.m.
Don McLeod will lead a nature walk along the Ballyduff Trails near Bethany. We will be looking for birds plus wildlife tracks and sign. These trails and the scenery are beautiful! This year we will take the trails one way rather than doubling back and will arrive at South Pond Farms to organize the shuttle. No big uphill climb like last time!
The Ballyduff Trails are on private property owned by Ralph McKim and Jean Garsonnin. They have generously offered their trails to the public through an agreement with the Kawartha Land Trust: https://kawarthalandtrust.org/?post_type=property&p=103. Thanks also to South Pond Farms for allowing us to park our shuttle vehicles and access to the trail around their pond.
Meet at the public parking lot on Crawford Drive, at the end of Harper Road and just off the Parkway and Sir Sandford Fleming Drive. From the parking lot, it is about a half hour drive to the outing location. We plan to arrive around 1:30pm at the Ballyduff Trails location: https://goo.gl/maps/7cmhgeMD6Ty– keep in mind that when we arrive there will be some time required for shuttle vehicles being driven to South Pond Farms.
The expected time back at the Crawford Drive parking lot is between 4:00 and 4:30 pm.
Optional items to bring include binoculars and camera.
Accessibility: Moderate. There is some uphill walking. Walking distance is about 5 km.
