So, the random hike picker has selected this urban hike for today.

This 13.5 KM hike will go from Dupont Station to Castle Frank Station.

The hike will be on a combination of sidewalks, paved paths, gravel trails, wooden stairs & single track dirt trails.

In terms of hills, there should be about 3 climbs to give you a nice challenge.

I'll attempt to stop for a washroom break at the Loblaws located about 1.5 KM into the hike
There's also an opportunity for a washroom, located about 9 KM into the hike at a Tim Hortons.

    For those of you who do not want to complete the entire hike, we'll pass
  • St Clair West Station, 1.5 KM into the hike
  • Eglinton West Station, 4.5 KM into the hike
  • Close to St Clair Station, about 9 KM 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'.
