So, on August 10th, I sprained my left ankle. I've spent the last month letting it heal and am ready to start hiking again.
However, I can't rush back into it, so I'm going to lead a few short/slow 'rehab' hikes as I begin to feel better.

So, today's 6 KM is just a short loop both starting and finishing at Scarborough Town Centre Station, but is a brand new route.

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

Elevation is at a minimal for this hike, with a few small climbs, but nothing over 25 meters.

I'll attempt to stop for a washroom in Thompson Memorial Park about 3 KM into the hike.

We'll aim for a slower pace of 3.5 to 4 KM/h

    Event Directions:

    We'll meet at the main (only entrance) to Scarborough Town Centre Station.

    Scarborough Town Centre Station is located on line 3, 4 stops east of Kennedy & 1 stop west of McCowan Station.

    Look for me in the Blue Toronto Outdoor Club T-Shirt.

    For those of you driving, the address for the station is 290 Borough Dr.
    In terms of parking, you could probably just park at the lot at the Scarbourgh Town Centre and then walk over to the station.
