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

This 11.5 KM hike will both start and finish at Leslie Station.

The hike will be on a combination of sidewalks, paved park paths, single track dirt trails & grassy fields.

In terms of hills, there should be about 4 of about 25 meters.

Sadly and annoyingly, there aren't really any washroom spots along this route - sorry.

There's one section, which is a bit eroded.
Its fine in the dry, but very sketchy in the wet.
Should it be wet or raining, I'll just omit this section on safety grounds.

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    We'll be meeting at the South-West corner of Sheppard Leslie, which is just outside Leslie Subway Station.
    Leslie station is located on the Sheppard Subway Line.

    If arriving on the Subway Subway line, please exit the station following the signs marked "TO LESLIE STREET" through the at subway level passage.

    If you follow the the platform to the far east side, there is a corridor that will take you to the meeting point.
    If you don't know where the far east side of the platform is, follow the direction of the eastbound train.

    If you go out an exit with a ticket booth or if there is a bus loop, you've gone the wrong way.

    In terms of parking, there is a TTC commuter lot located on Old Leslie Road, south of Sheppard.
