Adventure along the Wodehouse Karst
October 6 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Karst Topography forms when water dissolves soluble rock to form underground passage-ways, sometimes caves. Many examples can be found along the length of the escarpment. At Wodehouse, the creek disappears into cracks and sinkholes except during abundant spring runoff, only to reappear, sometimes in torrents, partway down the escarpment. Our hike will be to the sinkholes and then to the emerging streams of Bill’s Creek.
Count on a few steep sections, about 4km. Wear sturdy footwear. Perhaps some mud if pre-ceded by rain.
A walking pole is beneficial.
Meet at 1:30, Markdale, at the parking lot across from Fire and Ice (the old fire hall). Register at email@example.com
