So, this is my second time coordinating a meander on the Toronto Islands.

The plan today will be to traverse around the Toronto Islands, starting at Halan's Point and end near the large fountain near Centre Island & Centerville for 9.5 KM.
We'll probably stop a few times to check out points of interest

    At the end of the hike, you'll have the choice to:
  • Go and continue to explore the islands on your own
  • We will be on the path that takes to you the Centre Island Ferry to get back to the city.
  • For me, I'll probably go for Ice Cream in Centreville, because I have a sweet tooth.

For those of you who do not want to complete the entire walk, you have an option of bailing

  • 3 KM in at Centre Island
  • 6 KM in at Wards Island

    The entirety of this hike should be on either wide paved trails, park paths or roads.

    In terms of hills, the island is pretty flat, with no climbs over 25 meters.

    There will be multiple opportunities to stop for a washroom break, including at Halan's Point, Wards Island & Centre Island.

  • Weather appropriate clothing
  • Comfortable footwear

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    Hanlan's Point is is located on the Toronto Islands.

    We'll meet beside the Hanlan Memorial - (Look for me in the BLUE Toronto Outdoor Club shirt)

    To get to the islands, you have a couple options.
    Take the Hanlan's Point Ferry from the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal, located @ 9 Queens Quay West or south of the corner of Bay & Queens Quay.
    Also Queens Quay Streetcar Station is located there.

    I encourage you buy your tickets 'online in advance' to avoid disappointment of not potentially being able to purchase them the day of the hike.

    You can also take one of the Island Taxis
