So, my plans for Sunday just firmed up, meaning I can squeeze a urban hike before my plans start.

This 8.5 KM hike will travel between Rosedale Station and Union Station.

The hike will be primarily on paved paths and sidewalks, which could be covered in snow/ice.

In terms of hills, there should be a 25 meter climb up some stairs

I'll attempt to stop for a washroom break at the public washroom in the Distillery District.

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:

    Look for me in the BLUE Toronto Outdoor Club shirt near the lone entrance of the station

    For those of you driving, there a Green P parking lot located just south of the station on the west side of Yonge Street.
