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

This 13 KM hike will go between Bayview & Lawrence Station.

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

In terms of hills, there should be 2 challenging stair climbs of around 25 meters.

I'll attempt to stop for 2 washroom breaks.
One in Edwards Gardens, located about 6.5 KM in Edwards Gardens.

Post hike if anyone's interested, I might go to Brewing Brokers for a coffee, if you'd like to join.

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'.

    Event Directions:

    Bayview Subway Station is located on the Sheppard Line (line 4), 1 stop east of Sheppard-Yonge & 3 stops west of Don Mills Station.

    We'll meet outside the exit on the east side of Bayview.
    When exiting the subway, look for the sign for buses and then go to the exit for the northbound buses.
    Please DO NOT go to the exit for the YMCA or Sheppard Avenue

    For those of you driving, the meet point will be on the N.E. corner of Sheppard and Bayview. You can probably park in Bayview Village.

    Look for me in the BLUE Toronto Outdoor Club shirt at the entrance to the station.
