So the random urban hike generator has picked this route today, in the east end going through Taylor Creek Park, down the Flats and up the hill at Pottery Road.

This hike is a 11 KM route, starting at Victoria Park Subway Station and finishing at Chester Station

This hike will be a combination of paved paths (potentially covered in ice & snow) and gravel trails (which also could potentially be covered in ice & snow).

In terms of hills, there a small one in the middle and a large one right at the end.

In terms of washrooms, sadly there's aren't any in the Don nor Taylor Creek, nor any at the start point at Victoria Park Station.

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 to deal with any potential ice. You can find the pair I use, 'here from Amazon'.

Required Items to Bring:

Hiking boots or hiking shoes

Weather appropriate clothing


Flashlight / Headlight
