EVENT DETAILS

So this is an urban hike start out in the far east end.

We'll start from Midland SRT Station and head to McCowan Station for a 7 km route.

The majority of the hike is flat, with very few hills, which the majority of this hike being on wide paved trails.

Sorry, I can't guarantee any washrooms on this hike. However, there is a starbucks at the beginning of the hike and there's Scarborough Town Centre close to the end, so you'll have some close options.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE TTC IS CLOSED BETWEEN SHEPPARD- YONGE & BLOOR-YONGE STATION TODAY.

    Event Directions:

    Midland Station is located on the Scarborough Rapid Transit (SRT) line (Line 3), three stops East of Kennedy and one stop west of Scarborough Town Centre.

    Please meet outside the west entrance, which is the side with the collector booth.

    For those of you driving, Midland Station is located 2085 Midland Avenue, which is just north of Ellesmere. In terms of parking, there is a TTC lot just west of Midland, off Ellesmere. Probably about a 10 minute walk between the two.
