This is PART ONE of a mega urban hike from Broadview all the way up to Steeles!
That's right, do both parts and you'll (just about) traverse the City of Toronto from south to north.

In Part One, we will walk from Broadview to Leslie TTC station along green belts and park lands beside the Don River.
We'll be moving at a steady pace of around 4.8-5km/h (~3mph)

This is NOT a leisurely stroll.
If I've never hiked with you before on a hike of similar length & distance,
be prepared to tell me about your recent experiences hiking.

We'll meet at Broadview subway station.
Then we'll head down to the East Riverside park and up to Leslie along the Don trails,
passing several parks and the Toronto Botanical Gardens along the way.

We will have some quick water/snack/bathroom breaks as needed.

There will be numerous options to cut the walk short via transit if you are worried about being able to finish.
Most of the trail is paved.
There may be one ~1.5km sidewalk section near York Mills, as well as a few short dirt trail sections.
The terrain will be largely flat with 2-3 gradual hills.
Those who are interested in trekking up to Steeles may sign up for Broadsteeles Part Two, which will begin from Leslie TTC Station.

Required Items to Bring:
2-3L of water (what you need for the day)
Snacks as needed
Weather appropriate clothing
Extremely comfy hiking boots/shoes
Cell phone (fully charged!)
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Headlamp/flashlight just in case

How to Get There:
Event Directions:Meet at Broadview TTC station.
