This hike will go through my favorite park in the city, known as Crothers' Woods.

This 11 KM hike will start and end at Chester Station using several of the single track dirt trails in the Don Valley.

As this is Crothers' Woods, there will be several couple of fun up and downs, so it will probably be a tad bit tougher than your average D3, but still doable.

Hiking shoes or boots are probably a good idea.

Also, this is my 7 year anniversary out being a volunteer in the TOC, so if you'd like, please come and join me for some drinks post-hike

Required Items to Bring:

Hiking boots or hiking shoes are highly recommended.
