So, I haven't led this hike in 6 years, so might as well give it a go.

Tonight's hike will take us from Castle Frank Station to St. Clair Station for an 11.5 KM route.

This hike will travel on a combination of paved park paths, dirt/gravel trails as well as a decommissioned rail track.

In terms of hills, there are about 3 tough ones and a flight of stairs just to make you miserable.

Unfortunately, this time of year, the washrooms will not be open. (sorry)

Required Items to Bring:

Good footwear

Flashlight or headlight

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

Castle Frank Subway Station is located on the Bloor Subway Line, two stops east of Yonge Station.

Let's meet beside the collectors booth at the Castle Frank Road Exit. That exit is the eastern exit from the platform, also the one with the escalator. If you don't know where the eastern side of the platform is, then follow the direction of the eastbound train. 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.
