Join local history buff Fraser Forrest as he takes us along Spencer Creek Trail in Dundas. Learn about the industrial background and changes along Spencer Creek and how critical it was in making Dundas an industrial boom town. We’ll be starting at old Dundas Town Hall and walking along the mostly flat with some slopes, trail where Fraser will point out locations of some of the large factories that once produced everything from blankets & underwear to axes and screws.
This is a leisurely walk of about 3-4 kilometres depending on the group with multiple stops to talk about history. Dress warm and wear good boots. Bring icers for good grip. Poles recommended. Bring snack and water. Optional stop afterwards at #Grupetto coffee shop on King St.
