Cool map. And the elevation profile is cool, too.

The elevation profile shows a rise or a "bump" about 60 km from KW.
I think that this seems like it would be on the NW side of Dundas.
And this would be same as that seen at Clappison's Corners where Hwy 6 
drops down from Hwy 5 to the 403.
This is, roughly, where Hwy 5 crosses the Niagara Escarpment and 
continues north through Milton.
The escarpment can be seen in the shading on the same map.

PS: At 99 km from KW, the elevation profile shows the ravine where the 
Welland Canal is located. Cool!

BTW: On a bicycle tour in the same area, my brother's buddy crashed his 
bike and wound up in the trees.
The page does indicate "advanced riding skills necessary".
