I have hiked parts of this area several times and have noticed side trails that I wanted to do sometime in the future.
Well, that future is here!
So expect some exploration hiking on trails that may lead us somewhere interesting, or we may have to turn around and retrace our steps back to the main trail.
Sounds like fun to me!

There will be a few decent hills + many, many small ones

  • We'll start at the Shops at Don Mills outside Starbucks
  • then head over to Moccasin Trail Park
  • pass thru the tunnel under the DVP
  • pass thru the Rainbow Tunnel
  • on to Anewen Greenbelt
  • hopefully find the trail that provides passage under Eglinton Ave and continue to explore
  • then back to Shops at Don Mills
