So, I was supposed to do hike for a pint today, however I kinda got screwed over by the bar I was supposed to go to, so I'm just going to do this hike instead. (I'm still annoyed)
As I don't have time to chase down a new reservation, this is the best I can do on short notice.
Brand new route, trying out a few new places I've never been to before.

This 7.5 KM hike will travel between Greenwood Station to the Only, which is just outside Donlands Station.

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

In terms of hills, there should be climb of 25 meters as well as another short stair climb.

Sadly, there aren't really any spots to stop for a washroom on the hike. Sorry.

Post hike, I'll head over to the Only pub for a drink, if anyone would like to join me.

    Event Directions:

    Greenwood Station is located on the Bloor/Danforth Subway Line.

    Look for me in the BLUE Toronto Outdoor Club shirt at the entrance to the station.

    For those of you driving, Greenwood Station is not located on Greenwood, but one block east on Linnsmore Crescent, and just north of Danforth.
    In terms of parking, there should be some street parking in the neighborhood north of the station.
