This is an easier version of my Seaton Trail Dim Sum hike. The terrain is variable. Length of hike is 12.5 km, pace will be around 4 km/h.

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. 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.

Preference on the waiting list may go to drivers, regular D3 or D4 hikers, and, members with favourable attendance records. Passengers will be added as drivers become available.

Required Items to Bring:
  • Water-1 litre
  • Snacks
  • Suitable hiking footware
  • Change of footware for after the hike
Recommended Items to Bring:
