EVENT DETAILS

So, the random hike picker has suggested this hike for today.

This 10.5 KM hike will traverse between Dupont Station and St Clair Station, with an option of dropping off at St. Clair West Station, about 1.5 km into the hike or at Eglinton West Station, about 4.5 km into the hike.

Some interesting spots include

  • 'Casa Loma'.
  • 'Cedarvale Park'.
  • 'The Belt Line'.
  • 'Mount Pleasant Cemetery'.
  • 'The Neighbourhood of Deer Park'.
  • This hike will be on a combination of neighbourhood sidewalks, gravel trails, cemetery roads and paved park paths.

    We don't really have many hills, but we do have 2 of the longest staircases in Toronto to climb. So get excited for that.

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

    We'll do a washroom stop at the Loblaws at St. Clair West station, about 30 minutes into the hike.

    Post hike, if anyone is interested, I'll probably head over to the Union Social Eatery's pub for a pint and lunch, if you'd like to join.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A SUBWAY CLOSURE ON LINE 2 BETWEEN JANE & OSSINGTON STATION THIS WEEKEND
