The flats is the name of one of the cycling trails in Crothers Woods, it's nice and flat and follows the Don River.

However, this won't be a flat hike, as I'm gonna challenge you with a pair of hills.

This hike can be muddy in some areas, so hiking shoes/boots are recommended.

Start from Castle Frank Subway Station and end at Chester Station.

Total length of this hike is 12 KM

So this is lining up to be my 700th TOC event, so if anyone wants to stick around after the hike for a drink or something, you're welcomed to join, but its not mandatory.
