Hammer Town Hike, January 12th
Thanks to Jerome for planning/leading this walk.
Date: Saturday January 12th.
Meet: 10:15am at Hamilton GO station. [map]
GO Transit travel options are listed at: https://www.google.com/maps?ie=UTF8&f=d&saddr=Union+Station+near+Ontario,+Canada&daddr=Hamilton+GO+Station&date=01/12/2013&ttype=dep&time=08:30AM&dirflg=r
You can start from Union Station and choose between the train and a short bus ride, or take an express bus direct to Hamilton. The train departs Union at 8:43 and arrives in Aldershot at 9:48, where you transfer to a bus that leaves at 9:57 and arrives in Hamilton at 10:12. The express bus leaves Union at 8:53 and arrives at 9:52; another one leaves at 9:23 and arrives at 10:22.
For those of you driving, there are several parking lots within a short walking distance of the Hamilton GO station; Google Maps is your friend! Alternatively, you can park at the Aldershot GO station for free, and get a day pass into Hamilton and back for $9.00; this saves you the agony of negotiating downtown Hamilton’s many one-way streets!
The morning route stays close to the GO station for you latecomers! 😉
Lunch: Cat ‘n’ Fiddle (confirmed)
174 John Street,
Post-walk: The Pheasant Plucker (confirmed)
20 Augusta Street,
The pub is about a two minute walk from the GO station; buses leave every hour on the :35s, so that gives people about an hour and a half to relax before catching the 7:35… I think I’ll hang around for the 8:35!
