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

This 8.5 KM hike will travel between Sheppard- Yonge Station and Finch West Station.

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

In terms of hills, there should be 3 of at least 25 meters.

Sadly, the City of Toronto washrooms are closed this time of the year.
However, there are washrooms located inside the Sheppard Centre.

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'.

Required Items to Bring:
  • Flashlight / Headlight
  • Hiking boots / hiking shoes
  • Weather appropriate clothing
  • Water

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    We'll meet on the north east side of Yonge & Sheppard, which is located just outside Sheppard-Yonge Station, beside the CIBC.

    To access the meet point from the subway, please exit following the signs for the Sheppard Centre from the Line 1 platform
    Upon exiting the doorway, turn right and climb the stairs out to the north east corner.

    For those of you driving, there's a Green P parking lot located just one block north of Sheppard and then west of Yonge Street.

    Look for me in the BLUE Toronto Outdoor Club shirt, just beside the CIBC - should it be wet or cold, I'll just be inside the station doors.
