I want to take my bike in for a tune up at MEC, so I thought while I'm over here, I might as well do a hike in the area.

This is a route combines the neighborhood of the Don Valley Village as well as the East Don Parkland Trail. I'm expecting sections of this trail to be fairly muddy primarily because of the melting snow, so hiking boots/shoes or even gators are recommended.

This hike will be approx. 9 km and will start and finish at Leslie Station.

The majority of this hike will be either on paved trails or sidewalks, with a small section on a dirt path, but nothing too challenging.

Sadly there are no real washrooms available on this hike.

Required Items to Bring:

Good footwear - hiking boots or shoes

Water and snacks

Weather appropriate clothing

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

A smile

First Aid Kit

Icers, Crampons or Traction Devices


How to Get There:
Event Directions:

We'll be meeting at the South-West corner of Sheppard Leslie, which is just outside Leslie Subway Station. Leslie station is located on the Sheppard Subway Line.

If arriving on the Subway Subway line, please exit the station following the signs marked "TO LESLIE STREET."

If you follow the the platform to the far east side, there is a corridor that will take you to the meeting point. If you don't know where the far east side of the platform is, follow the direction of the eastbound train.

If you go out an exit with a ticket booth or if there is a bus loop, you've gone the wrong way.

In terms of parking, there is a public parking lot on the North-West side of Leslie/Sheppard and is accessed from Sheppard Avenue.
