So, brand new area of the city / outside of the city that I've never hiked before today.

This 8.5 KM hike will start and finish at Rouge Hill GO Station.

The hike will be on a combination of paved park paths, sidewalks and roads.

In terms of hills, there should be about 3 of 25 meters.

I'll attempt to stop for a washroom break 4 KM in at Petticoat Creek park.
There should also be a washroom in Rouge Hill GO Station.
