Welcome to my Hike For A Pint Dram Series, where we'll be walking to either a brewery or interesting pub in the city.
Today we're switching it up and heading to a bar that specializes in doing Whiskey flights.
The group size will be capped based on either reservation size or however many people I think I can get into a location.

You must be 19 or older to sign up for this hike.

Today's 7.5 KM hike will traverse between Queens Quay Station to a mystery pub near the corner of Ossington & College.

If you register for this event, I'm going to ask that you come to the pub because:

  • 1. you could be taking a spot away from someone on the wait list who otherwise wanted to attend.
  • 2. Also because I could have a reservation and they are expecting a certain amount of people.

    This hike will primarily be on paved park paths.

    In terms of hills, there are none over 25 meters.

    In terms of washrooms, we'll stop about 3.5 KM into the hike at Coronation Park.
    There are also washrooms located inside the meet building.

    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:
  • Hiking boots or hiking shoes
  • Water 1-2 L and snacks
  • Weather appropriate clothing
  • Money for the pub
  • Recommended Items to Bring:
    Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
  • A smile

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    So, we'll be meeting on the North- West corner of Bay and Queens Quay, which is just outside of Queens Quay Ferry Docks Streetcar Station.
    I'll be sitting inside the building as they have comfortable couches to sit on.

    Queen Quay Ferry Docks Station can be accessed by taking the streetcar south from Union Station.

    For those of you driving, there's a public parking lot, located on the north-west corner of Harbour & Bay Street, which is a block north of our meet point.

    Look for me in the BLUE Toronto Outdoor Club shirt.
