EVENT DETAILS

So, I have to be downtown to meet a few friends today, so might as well do an urban hike to get there.

This 8.5 KM hike will traverse between Christie Station & Queens Quay Streetcar Station.
Some interesting spots include

  • 'The Neighbourhood of Bickford Park'.
  • 'Trinity Bellwoods Park'.
  • 'Garrison Crossing'.
  • 'Coronation Park'.
  • 'Toronto's Harbourfront'.
  • This hike will primarily be on paved park paths or sidewalks, with one concrete pier.

    This hike is weirdly easy in terms of the amount of hills.
    Primarily, we're walking downhill or on flat ground.

    I'll stop for a washroom break about an hour into the hike in Coronation Park.
    There's also a washroom located in Christie Pits across the street from the start point of the hike.

    We'll aim for a pace of 4-5 km/h.
