How to Get There:
Event Directions:We will meet at the Leslie TTC Sheppard and Leslie exit (see image below) and depart at 9am. I'll be the one with white-gray hair and glasses. It's up to you to plan ahead and arrive before the departure time.
Leslie is on Subway Line 4 (Sheppard).
There is a 102-car parking lot at the station, but as this is a one-way hike, you would need to travel back to Leslie to fetch your vehicle if you park there.

This hike will go forth in rain, snow, wind, or beautiful sunshine.
Please arrive on time. I will silence my cell phone once the event begins.
