This year we’ve added a stop at the Hermitage Gatehouse Museum and every guest will receive a card for 10%off any purchase at MEC Burlington’s Club Night!

Visitors are free to visit the Discovery Centre and see fossil displays, taxidermy, Arts and Photography Series and video displays, or peruse the Niagara Escarpment library.

The hike program will run every Saturday from June 1 through Thanksgiving, weather permitting. Check website of FB page for cancellations. Hike lasts approximately 1.5 hours and is 3.5 km long.
