Itinerary:
They say that if March comes in like a lion, itíll go out like a lamb. But sometimes, itís said that if it comes in like a lamb, itíll go out like a lion. Iíve definitely seen it go out like a lion, so maybe this year it will, too. Which means weíll have Ďpleasantí weather for our hike. :)

Letís see what this year brings us during this loop urban hike, which is easily accessible by subway.

Weíll start and end at St. Clair Subway station. Those who drive can find Green P parking very close by as well.

The hike is over 90% trails. About 7 km will be some back and forth within the Mt Pleasant Cemetery; an additional 4+ km will be on the beltline Trail.

If anyone is interested at the end, we can go for a bite at a nearby pub.

  • Start and end by St. Clair Subway station
  • Pace to be 4.5 Ė 5 km / hour (= ~ 3 mph which is speed 3.0 on a treadmill) This is above average for non-active people.
