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

This 9 KM hike will travel between Runnymede & Royal York Station.

The hike will be on a combination of roads/sidewalks, gravel trails, paved path paths, boardwalks and single track dirt trails.

In terms of hills, there should be two small climbs of 25 meters.

I'll attempt to stop for a washroom break at Sir Casimir Gzowski Park, located about 3.5 KM into the hike, but I don't know if its open.
