This hike invites the participants to enjoy the pathways of the farm animals on cow paths and the wild deer trails across the rolling hills of Waverley Brook Farm. The logging trails are the main Rd. way with smaller trails that crisscross this more than a century old farm. Various activities and impacts will be observed while traversing this operating four season dynamic landscape. This is a four seasons bio‐dynamic working farm that practises sustainable logging, maple syrup, livestock and home garden productions. This hike is co-sponsored by Environment Haliburton as we share the care of the land as well as learn from the healing of the land. Suitable for adults, teens, and children. No dogs please
