So, brand new route alert!!!
Today's hike will include going through 4 parks, I've never been in before.
Get excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This 13.5 KM hike will travel between Dundas West Station & Jane Station.

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

The hike will be on a combination of multi use paths, neighbourhood sidewalks, some dirt paths & some grassy fields.

In terms of hills, there are 2 hills of about 25 meters and then a 50 meter hill/flight of stairs out of the Humber River Valley towards the end of the hike.
I guess, there's also a long staircase over the railway tracks at the start of the hike, so 4 climbs to make your suffer.

I'll stop at the for a washroom at a Tim Hortons located at about 7.5 KM.

I usually carry a pair of icers with me from the first snowfall of the year until the end of April, so I recommend having a pair in your pack to deal with any potential ice.
You can find the pair I use, 'here from Amazon'.

    We'll meet outside the Entrance to Dundas West Subway station on the Bloor Line, which is located 6 stations west of St. George Station & 8 east of Kipling Station. If raining or cold, I'll be just inside the station doors.

    If driving, the station entrance is located on the North-West side of Bloor/Dundas (on Dundas).
    There's a parking lot located one block west of Dundas, just north of Bloor on Dorval Road.
