Itinerary:

THE CARPOOL LEAVES YORK MILLS STATION AT 10 AM

This is my 3rd time leading this hike. The terrain is variable, with hilly and rocky sections.

This is what I like to call a lollipop route, doing a 'There and Back' section as well as a large loop, totaling 22 km.

Some of the features of the hike will include climbing the Devil's Pulpit (no easy task) and we'll also check out the beautiful newly-reopened Cheltenham Badlands.

At the conclusion of the hike, we'll stop at the Spirit Tree for a sip of award-winning-cider or a taste of fresh pastries.

This hike is suitable for intermediate to advanced hikers.

If you cannot walk the entire distance, please do not sign up for this hike.

DRIVERS, WHEN YOU SIGN UP, PLEASE ANSWER THE CARPOOL QUESTION REGARDING THE AMOUNT OF PASSENGERS YOU CAN TAKE IN YOUR CAR!!!

For those of you choosing to meet at the event location, instead of the carpool, please ensure that you come on time

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    Event Directions: Leaving York Mills Station - take Yonge Street north to the 401.

    -Travel west along Highway 401 to Highway 410 (21 KM).

    -Merge with Highway 410 and follow it North for approx. 35 km (NOTE: HWY 410 will eventually turn into HWY 10)

    -Turn Left at the traffic light for King Street, Regional Road #9 and travel for about 4 km.

    -Turn right onto Creditview Road and travel north for about 4 km.

    -Before the road curves to the left, there is a gravel parking area, just to your right, where you can park your car at 15291 Creditview Road. If you drive to Olde Base Line Road, you've gone too far.

    WARNING: There are no washroom at the start point of this event, nor are there any along the route. My best suggestion is going to the Esso Station just after you take the left off hwy 10 onto King Road.
