We will be stopping along our hike at the 8 km point at a restaurant in Thornhill which serves delicious mideastern food, Laffa, Pita, Falafel, Shawarma etc at very reasonable prices.
It is not a sit down restaurant, but there are stools at the counter, and some outdoor patio seating.

We will hike along mainly paved, fairly flat paths and sidewalks, with a couple of tiny hills, and through some residential neighbourhoods.

This is the route we will take.
