EVENT DETAILS

So, I've randomly selected a hike out of my personal urban hiking database for today's hike.

This 8 KM hike will both start and finish at St. Clair Station.

Interesting spots include

  1. 'Mount Pleasant Cemetery'.
  2. 'T he Don Valley Brickworks'.
  3. 'David A Balfour Ravine'.

PACE: We'll aim for a quicker pace of 4.5-5.5 km/h

The hike will be on a combination of paved park paths, neighborhood sidewalks and gravel paths

In terms of hills, there's probably about 2 of at least 25 meters.

I'll attempt to stop at the Brickworks for a washroom break about halfway through the hike.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS HIKE IS STARTING AT 7 PM RATHER THAN MY TRADTIONAL 7:30 START TIME, IN ORDER TO GET THROUGH THE CEMETERY

Post hike if anyone is interested, I'm thinking about going for a post hike drink at Shenanigans pub, if anyone would like to join.
