So, I'm trying out a new version of a route I haven't done before. I've done all the sections, but not in this version.

This hike will be circling and traversing around the Swansea Neighborhood, a neighborhood in Toronto that is filled with beautiful homes and great parks.

Admittedly this hike is more urban than park, but we will spend some time in High Park, Sunnyside & Rennie Park.

There will be about three challenging hills on the route.

This hike will be about 9 KM and will start and end at Runnymede Subway Station.

Required Items to Bring:

Good footwear - hiking boots or hiking shoes recommended

Water 1-2 L and snacks

Weather appropriate clothing

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

First Aid Kit

A Smile

Icers or Traction Devices

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

Meet @ the Runnymede Road exit of the Runnymede Subway Station.

NOTE: Do not meet in front of the Kennedy Road exit or else you won't find me

Runnymede Subway Station is located on the Bloor Subway line, 10 stations west of St. George and 5 stations east of Kipling.

(Look for me in the BLUE Toronto Outdoor Club shirt)
