EVENT DETAILS

So, this is a little longer hike for your Labour Day Holiday, checking out some of the new trails in the east Don Valley.

This route will be about 16.5 km both starting and finishing at Kennedy Station.

Despite its length I've still rated this hike as a D3 as the majority of the hike will be on wide flat paved trails, with a few single track trails and some neighborhoods thrown in.

In terms of hills, there are probably about 3 climbs, including one hill of about 50 meters and 2 other stair climbs.

In terms of washrooms, there should be 2 available. 30 minutes in at Goodlad Park, which we will pass twice.


Required Items to Bring:
  • Hiking boots or hiking shoes
  • Water 1-2 L and snacks
  • Weather appropriate clothing
  • Face mask or face covering
  • Recommended Items to Bring:
