So, its boxing day and I don't really want to do any shopping, so let's do a relatively challenging urban hike instead.

We will be traveling between Lawrence Subway Station and Broadview Subway Station for approx. 16.5 km hiking along the single-track don valley mountain biking trails. Expect the trails or be muddy or icy and definitely slippery.

This is one of the most difficult urban hikes in the city in terms of terrain and the only urban hike I lead as a D4

NOTE: Expect to be traveling between 4.0-10.0 km/h, as the trails can often feel like riding a roller coaster on portions of this hike. On the flats, I'll probably walking at least 5.5 km/h.

NOTE: If you do not bring hiking boot/hiking shoes, you may be turned away.

Required Items to Bring:

Hiking boots/shoes REQUIRED

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

First Aid Kit


Icers or traction devices

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

We'll meet on the North-West corner of Yonge St and Lawrence Ave, right beside the City Market.

Look for me in the BLUE Toronto Outdoor Club shirt.




Please arrive on time, I will turn my cell phone off once we begin hiking.

This hike will go forth rain or shine.
