2006 Hike Pictures
Here are some pictures of hikes I have been on with the Oak Ridges Trail Association. Some people are having challenges manipulating the thumbnail pages, so I created this HELP file. (Click on HELP)
Only 40 people took part in this hike, but more joined us later for the party. The hike turned out to be 17.5 km. We were led through many new and interesting trails in Aurora.
42 people took part in this special hike. Harold was unable to join us today, so Joan kindly led the hike for him. Some of us left after the toast's to Brian & Wilma. I'm not sure how many went to Fast Eddies.
I believe 34 hikers enjoyed the hike today. My GPS said we walked 7.7 km but who's going to quibble. Many hikers took advantage of Brian & Wilma's kind offer of the after hike social.
23 hikers were out today. The rain held off and it was a pleasant 14.6 km hike. (according to my GPS) A few of us went to Sheena's Kitchen in Schomberg Afterwards.
32 hikers and 4 dogs joined Brian and Wilma for the hike through these scenic forests. Although I believe the hike was actually 11 km, but no one complained.
8 hikers enjoyed today. Charlie decided on a there and back because of the weather.It was raining at first, but but stopped later on, so it was good hiking weather. A little muddy as can be seen in the pictures. I dropped out after 10 km so that's where the pictures end.
11 people & one dog, joined Stan on this 6.5 KM hike. The weather was perfect and we had a great hike. Unfortunately only 4 of us went to lunch after.
17 people and 3 dogs enjoyed the hike today. We had great weather as we hiked almost 9 km. There was some confusion as to where the trail went, but we enjoyed wondering in the warm sunshine. After the hike 16 enjoyed lunch at Sheena's Restaurant.
6 hikers joined Eric Worsely for this 10 km hike. The rain held off pretty well until lunch and the hike was enjoyed by all. Eric did have some problems finding one bridge, which he claimed somebody had moved. But it all just added to the interest of the hike. Thanks to Wyn for the great soup with our lunch.
27 hikers enjoyed this 10 km hike. It was a beautiful sunny day. Many thanks to Eric for leading us through this maze of trails and bridges.
12 hikers joined Bob & Diane today on this 8.5 km hike. It was shorter than advertised, but the winery & lunch stretched the time out. The weather was good to us and the bugs left us alone for the most part.
17 people enjoyed today's leisurely 5 km hike. The weather was pleasant and there were no bugs. 14 of us went to Fast Eddies for lunch. I must thank Bob Comfort for leading most of the hike.
21 hikers joined Robert on this nice sunny day. The hike was actually only 8.5 km, but nobody complained as it meant more time at Bob & Maureen's. A couple of the pictures may only have meaning to those that were on the hike.
Twenty-one of us hiked approximately 6.75 km on this beautiful sunny day.
10 hikers enjoyed today's 10 km hike. it was definitely a shorts day. The Millar side trail was still muddy so we strolled over to Mary lake. Diane couldn't make it today, so Bob had to manage alone.
24 hikers and 3 dogs joined Brian & Wilma on this beautiful sunny day for a pleasant 6.7 km hike.
Stan was tied up in a meeting so Bob & Diane led this hike which totaled 10 people. It was a beautiful day for an approximate 6.8 km hike. It was a little muddy in parts and the low part of the Millar side trail was under water so it was avoided.
62 memberships were represented at the AGM by 78 people. In addition we got 5 new members. The 2 hike leaders were Charlie Atkinson & Diana Piche. We strolled a leisurely 3.5 km with Diana.
9 people joined us on our first hike. We thank them for supporting us. The weather was "changeable" but I think a good time was had by all. We walked a total 10.8 km averaging 3.4 km/hr Total time was just under 4 hours. Don't forget our next hike on April 19 at 10:00
11 people & 2 dogs joined us on this slightly damp day. We even ran into a stretch of ice!
Sorry I'm late with these. I believe 19 people joined us on this beautiful sunny day.
10 Hikers joined Chris for this pleasant walk under a hazy moon when visible. Icers were almost a necessity. Unfortunatly hikers claimed my flash blinded them, so I did not take many pictures.
8 hikers & 1 dog joined us today. The rain held of, so it was an enjoyable 7 km hike. Of course we had no need of snowshoes, but icers' cam in handy. After we all enjoyed a good lunch at Fast Eddie's.
22 hikers joined us for this festive occasion. Unfortunatly Harold could not make it but was there in spirit. Joan Taylor took over the leadership role. Many thanks go to Charlie Atkinson for his now famous "Address To A Haggis" And we can not overlook Janet Atkinson for her great "Haggis" and ORTA for the Wee Dram of Scotch. I was one of the 6 wimps that quit after lunch.
!4 hikers joined Charlie, then I arrived at lunch making 15. Nice day, but very icy. Fortunately everyone had icers. If you have Google Earth installed click here.

24 hikers started on this hike led by our substitute leader Brian Millage. 30 Hikers finished. I was in the last group that joined on this chilly drab day. But Harold joined after me, so I don't feel so bad. The map is from Peter Schaefer and it indicates the hike was 15 km long and they average 4.5 km/hr
13 people and a dog joined us on this 6 KM hike (according to my GPS). It was a cold, sunny day that made for some gorgeous scenery.

18 hikers joined Harold for this 14.6 km hike on this beautiful day. Even the normally windy corner we started at was pleasant.
16 hikers joined Eric for this special hike. Eric was 80 years young on this day. He has been a member of ORTA since 1992, led many hikes and is an active trail captain.
