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

This 14 KM hike will travel between Victoria Park & Lawrence Station via some alternative trails in Taylor Creek & Serena Gundy Park.

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

The hike will be on a combination of paved park paths, single track dirt trails and some sidewalks.

In terms of hills, there's probably about 3 hills of about 25 meters and one longer climb of 50 meters. Maybe about 3 stair climbs as well, just to make you miserable.

I'll stop at the washroom at Taylor Creek park about 15 minute into the park and the washroom in Serena Gundy, just under 2 hours into the hike.
Since this is a longer urban hike than normal, we'll stop for an extended snack break during the 2nd washroom stop.

If anyone is interested, I'm thinking about going to "Your Gelato" for a post hike snack.

    Event Directions:

    Victoria Park Station is located on the Danforth Subway Line, 2 stops west of Kennedy & 11 stops east of Yonge Station.

    We'll just meet outside the Victoria Park Avenue entrance to the subway, which is beside the signal for the bus loop. If it is raining or cold, I'll just be in the station doors.

    For those of you driving, Victoria Park Station is located just north of Danforth Avenue. Address is 777 Victoria Park Avenue. In terms of parking, there is a commuter lot located just south of the station entrance.
