What could be better than a 25 km stroll in the morning followed by Dim Sum? The terrain is variable. Length of hike is 25 km, pace will be 6+ km/h.

This is a challenging "in and out" hike intended to give advanced hikers a good workout and a good appetite. Hikers coming on this event must have D5 level experience and be able to hike 6+ km/h continuously over variable terrain. Hikers will be able to go at their own pace. There will be no dropouts. Only those who meet the criteria will be accepted on the event.

The trail follows West Duffins Creek that winds through a riparian habitat, all within Pickering. You can find a map here: Seaton Trail.

When we return to Toronto, we'll all go to Casa Imperial for Dim Sum.

Reservations will be made for 1:45 pm. Please note that because of reservations, last minute cancellations will make things difficult for me, so if you must cancel, do so as early as possible.
