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

This 10.5 KM hike will traverse between Runnymede and Old Mill Station.

Some interesting spots include

  • 'Grenadier Pond'.
  • 'Hillside Gardens'.
  • 'Sunnysdie Beach'.
  • 'Humber Bay Arch Bridge'.
  • 'Humber River Marshes'.
  • Today's hike will be on a combination of neighbourhood sidewalks, dirt trails, paved park paths and a boardwalk.

    There's just one hill over 25 meters on the hike and naturally its right at the end of the walk.

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

    We'll stop for a washroom break at about 45 minutes into the hike in High Park. There's weirdly a second option available also at the 1.5 hour mark of the hike. So, you'll have options.
