So, I haven't done this route in a while, but its a fun route that utilizes some of the side trails in Taylor Creek, The Don & Riverdale Park.

The majority of this trail will be on either gravel or dirt trails, so hiking boots/shoes are recommended.

The majority of the hike is pretty flat, however I have thrown in three hills and a flight of stairs, just to make your life difficult.

This hike will go from Victoria Park Station to Broadview Station for a 12.5 KM route.

WARNING: There are no available washrooms on the hike.

Required Items to Bring:
  • Hiking boots/shoes
  • 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.
  • A smile

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    Victoria Park Station is located on the Danforth Subway Line, 2 stops west of Kennedy & 11 stops east of Yonge Station.

    Meet near the collector's or fares booth, inside the station, near the Victoria Park Avenue Exit.

    Look for the guy with the blue Toronto Outdoor Club shirt marking attendance, and jamming to some classical music, in which they often play inside the station.
