So this is a Fletcher classic, that I really enjoy doing.

This entire hike is on paved trails or roads. The hike is 9.5 KM long and is pretty easy, except as per standard practice, the big hill along Pottery Road at the end. Sorry, I have to make you suffer a little bit.

For this hike, we'll start at Victoria Park Station and end at Chester Station.

Since, we'll be in the valley the whole time, there aren't any washroom spots available.
