PACE: 5 km/h

DIFFICULTY: D3 / D4 Terrain is not difficult, 5 km/h is not particularly fast. However, 20 km is not a short distance, but since this is an urban hike, buses are never far if you decide 20 km is too far.

This hike will be along a mix of paved, gravel and dirt paths going through 3 cities: Toronto, Markham, and Vaughan and back to Toronto
We will go through a long tunnel which can produce a 4 second echo.
We will go through some forested areas
We will cross a creek, hopping rock to rock at the 2km point
We will go through some neighbourhoods with interesting and unique houses

This is the route we will take.

  • Start and end at Finch Subway Station
  • We will stop at a coffee shop somewhere for a short break plus take a few other short breaks here and there
