This D3 hike will be 17 km. We'll maintain a moderate pace of about 5 km/h along a mix of pavement, gravel and dirt paths.

There will be some hills, and a short challenging section through the trees with some short but steep inclines and declines on a mountain biking path.

Don't get left behind! Please arrive early, we will start promptly, and I will turn off my cell once we begin hiking.

We'll start at Lawrence Subway Station, and end at Davisville Subway Station.

This is the route we will take.

  • Start at Lawrence subway station, (S.E. corner of Yonge St & Lawrence Ave)
  • east through various parks to Sunnybrook Park
  • south thru E.T. Seton park
  • along the Lower Don River Trail
  • stop at the Brick Works for 30 minutes (have lunch or just browse)
  • north along the Beltline Trail thru Moore Park Ravine
  • thru Mt. Pleasant Cemetery
  • End at Yonge and Davisville
  • I plan to walk an additional 3km back up Yonge to Lawrence.
    You can join me if you like.
    I will almost certainly stop for a delicious burrito on the way (just N of Eglinton)
