So, this is a brand new urban hike, I'm trying.

This hike is about 50/50 between urban areas and parkland. I believe there is only one challenging hill on this hike, but could be wrong, because its brand new.

Overall, the hike is about 11.5 KM and will go be a loop, both starting and finishing at North York Centre Station.

We'll be passing a starbucks about 1.5 hours into the hike, so we can stop there for a washroom break if anyone needs it.

Required Items to Bring:

Good footwear - hiking boots or hiking shoes recommended

Snacks & Water

Headlight or flashlight

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

We'll meet outside the Starbucks at North York Centre Subway Station. The Starbucks is located on the west of Yonge St and on the north side of Mel Lastman Square and across the street from Empress Walk Mall.

For those driving:

There is street parking in the area, west of Beecroft Rd

Or, there's a pay parking lot on the North- East corner at Empress/Park Home and Yonge Street, which is three traffic lights north of Sheppard Ave. Then it's just a short walk to the Starbucks, which is located on the south-west side.

Look for me in the Blue Toronto Outdoor Club T-Shirt.
