So, trying another yet another new urban hike tonight.

This route will go from Glencairn Station to Broadview Station for a 13.5 KM route.

The majority of this hike will be on wide gravel trails, but I have thrown in some single track mountain biking trails as well as a decommissioned railway track, so hiking boots or shoes are recommended. Only one really though hill on this hike, but we will climb some stairs to get out of the Don.

Please note, we'll be meeting at the south entrance to Glencairn Station, which is the Viewmount Avenue Exit. Also, please note that there are no washrooms near the starting point of this hike.

Required Items to Bring:
  • Good footwear - Hiking boots or shoes are recommended
  • Water 1-2 L and snacks
  • Weather appropriate clothing
  • Headlight/Flashlight
  • Recommended Items to Bring:
    Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
  • A smile
  • First Aid Kit
  • Whistle
  • Icers, Crampons or Traction Devices

  • How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    Glencairn Subway Station is located on the University Subway Line (Line 1), one stop north of Eglinton West Subway Station & 5 Stations north of St. George.

    We'll be meeting at the Viewmount Avenue exit, which is the south exit of the station. If you do not know which is the south exit of the station, just follow the direction of the southbound train.

    For those of you driving, the address is 237 Viewmount Avenue.
