Itinerary:

For this hike, Iíve been trying to understand the north western side of the Smalls Ravine, so Iím going to attempt to pop out there today.

This short 6 KM route will both start and finish at Greenwood Subway 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 are two decent challenging stair climbs of about 25 meters each.

Sadly, there arenít really any washroom stops on this hike.
However, itís a short route.




For those of you who are unfamiliar with the way I do my hikes is that I donít tend to lead them, I tend to manage them.
So if you see me walking at a certain pace, you do not have to walk at the same pace as me.
If you want to walk at a faster pace, thatís cool, but if you want to walk at a slower pace, thatís cool too.
Weíll stop for a break when we take a major turn, cross a major intersection or when I think the group is getting to far separated.
Iíll rush up to the front and allow folks to take a breather, water and make sure youíre alive break.
My only request, if you choose to walk ahead of me and you do not know where youíre going, please stop and wait and Iím not going to chase after you if you choose to go the wrong way.

    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.
