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

This 14 KM hike will travel between Glencairn to Pape Station.

The hike will be on a combination of sidewalks, paved paths, gravel trails & single track dirt trails

In terms of hills, there should be about 3 of around 25 meters, including the last one, which is fairly steep.

I'll stop for 2 washroom breaks during the hike

  • 4 KM into the hike in Oriole Park
  • 11.5 KM into the hike in Riverdale Park.

    Post hike, if anyone is interested, I'm going to head over to Bar Hop for a drink and a lunch if you'd like to join me.
