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

This 11 KM will be a loop both start and finish at Warden Station.

The hike will be on a combination of sidewalks, grassy fields, gravel paths and paved park paths.

In terms of climbs, there's probably 3 that will get your heart rate up. Two staircases and a steep 25 meter climb.

Sadly, there will not be any washroom stops on this hike due to the locations being closed this time of the year.
However, there is the option to use the washroom at Warden Subway Station.

In case you want to drop out of this hike earlier or are sick of seeing my ugly face, we'll pass Victoria Park Station about 3 KM or 40 minutes or so into the hike.

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'.

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    We'll meet outside the Warden Avenue exit at Warden Station. To get there, just exit where the collectors booth is and follow the signs for Warden Avenue.
    However, if it is cold or wet, I'll just be inside the station and just up the stairs.

    Warden Station is located on line 2 (Bloor- Danforth), one station west of Kennedy & 12 stations east of Yonge.

    For those of you driving, Warden Station has a parking lot on the North-East & South-East corner of St. Clair & Warden and can be accessed from Warden Ave.
