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

This 7.5 KM hike will both start and finish at St. Clair Station.

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

In terms of hills, there should be 2 climbs of 50 meters and 2 climbs of 25 meters.

Sadly, there really isn't any able washrooms on this route.
Typically, I run into the Starbucks, located on the north-east corner of St. Clair & Yonge.

Post hike, if anyone's interested, I'll head over to Union Social Eatery for a drink and a bite to eat, if anyone is interested in joining.

    St. Clair Subway Station is located on the Yonge/University Subway Line, 3 stops north of Bloor Station.

    We'll meet outside the subway entrance located on the SOUTH side St Clair Avenue, which is right beside a McDonalds, just east of Yonge Street.
    Probably underneath the tower of 21 St. Clair East. See Picture of Starting location Below.

    For those of you driving, there's a Green P parking lot located on Alvin Avenue, just east of Yonge Street and north of St. Clair.
