A big thanks to a couple of fellow hikers for taking me on this particular loop walk in the Galt part of Cambridge. I had never been on parts of this loop. I really enjoyed the Dan Spring Way that is a short path along the Grand River below Galt Collegiate Institute. The Dan Spring Way is a portion of the Cambridge Living Levee Trail (PDF map). I also enjoyed the path upward from St. Andrews Street, across from Glebe Street (Google Street View), into St. Andrew's Park where one can see the Pioneer Pergola. This loop also includes the Cambridge Sculpture Garden and lots of other interesting Galt homes and laneways.
