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

This 14.5 KM hike will travel between Christie Station and Jane Station.

The hike will be all either on paved sidewalks or or paved roads or paved park paths.

In terms of hills, there should be 2 of about 25-50 meters.
And in an cruel and unusual way, they are located closed to the end of the hike.

I'll stop for a washroom break at in Coronation Park about 5.5 KM in and in Budapest Park about 10 KM into the hike.

Post hike, if anyone's interested, I might head over to Bryden's Pub for a drink and a bite to eat if you'd like to join me.

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'.
