EVENT DETAILS

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

This 9.5 KM hike will start at Chester Station and end at Victoria Park Subway Station.

Some interesting spots include

  • 'The Neighbourhood Of Playter Estates'.
  • 'An Old Lime Kiln'.
  • ' The Elevated Wetlands'.
  • 'Taylor Creek Park'.
  • 'The Neighbourhood Of Oakridge'.
  • This hike will primarily either be on neighbourhood sidewalks or paved park paths.
    We will go off path to check out an old lime kiln hidden in the Don Valley, which I've only recently come across.

    In terms of hills, there are a few small climbs, but the only annoying climb is up a steep flight of stairs towards the end of the hike.

    We'll stop for a washroom break in Taylor Creek, probably about 1.5 to 2 hours into the hike.

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