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

This 7 KM hike will travel between Finch Station & Bessarion Station.

PACE: We'll aim for a quicker pace of 4.5- 5.5 km/h

The hike will be on a combination grassy trails, multi use trails, neighbourhood sidewalks and single track dirt trails.

In terms of hills, I think there are about 3 that will test you.

Sadly, there isn't a washroom on this hike. However, there is one located in the Finch Go Terminal beside the start of the hike.

    Event Directions:

    So, we'll meet outside the Finch Go Bus Terminal on the N.E. corner of Yonge & Bishop/Hendon.

    For those traveling from the subway:
    - exit the subway where the ticket booth is on the concourse level,
    - turn right follow the path down past the Tim Hortons,
    - then you can take a right at either the first staircase or the first escalator to get out to the N.E. corner / Finch Go Bus Terminal.
    Also, you can just follow the signs for the GO Bus Terminal, whichever is easiest.

    For those of you driving, the N.E. corner of Hendon / Bishop is located one traffic light north of Finch.
    The entrance to the TTC parking lot is located one further traffic light north on the east side.
