So this is another hike that I've done all the individual parts for, but never in this actual routing. Gotta change life up a bit, or else it gets boring.

So this 11 KM route will go from Greenwood Station down to the lake, before heading back up the Don recreational trail up to Broadview Station.

The majority of this hike is pretty flat. There's one challenging ravine near the start of the hike, just because it's single track, but the majority of the hike is on wide park paths.

We'll stop for a washroom break near the 5.5 km mark of the hike, probably about an hour and half into the route.
