So, trying out another new route today.

This hike will take us past the fantastic Casa Loma, through Sir Winston Churchill Ravine & down through David Belfour Park for a 8 km route.

The toughest bit will be climbing 30 meters up the stairs to Casa Loma, which we'll do within the first 10 minutes of the hike. However, I do have a second challenging hill towards the end of the hike up Milkmans' Lane.

This hike will go from Dupont Station to Castle Frank Station. The walk will be half through neighborhoods and half ravine walking.

Please note that there aren't any available washrooms on the hike, nor are there any near the start or end point. So, please ensure that you go before coming to the hike.
