So, the random hike generator has picked this urban hike for this afternoon.

This hike will be on a combination of neighborhoods, gravel trails, dirt trails and some paved paths. (Good variety)

This hike is about 12 KM and will go from Rosedale Station to Victoria Park Station.

In terms of hills, we'll have one fairly early into the hike, getting out of the brickworks. Also, a steep flight of stairs to get out of Taylor Creek, right at the end of the hike.

In terms of washrooms, we'll just stop at the Brickworks, maybe about 30 minutes in.

I usually carry a pair of icers with me from the first snowfall of the year until the end of April, so I recommend having a pair in your pack. You can find the pair I use, 'here from Amazon'.

Required Items to Bring:

Good footwear

Snacks & Water
