So, I can't go far from the hood today as I'm going to a wedding this afternoon, but I have enough time to sneak an urban hike around my neighborhood.

Distance is about 5.5 KM, with the hike both starting and finishing at Sheppard Yonge Station.

This hike will be on a combination of neighborhood sidewalks & single track dirt trails.

Looks like I'm gonna make you suffer a few times on this hike with 3 hills, two of which are about 40 meters.

Sadly there's no washroom open on this route, but there is a washroom in the Sheppard Centre, which is just beside the start/finish point

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    We'll meet on the north east side of Yonge & Sheppard, which is located just outside Sheppard-Yonge Station, beside the CIBC.

    To access the meet point from the subway, please exit following the signs for the Sheppard Centre. Upon exiting the doorway, turn right and climb the stairs out to the north east corner.

    For those of you driving, there's a Green P parking lot located just one block north of Sheppard and then west of Yonge Street.

    Look for me in the BLUE Toronto Outdoor Club shirt, just beside the CIBC - should it be wet or cold, I'll just be inside the station doors.
