EVENT DETAILS

So, one of my favorite spots to hike in the city is the East Don River, north of Leslie Station and boy am I lucky that the random hike picker selected this hike for your evening.

Tonight's 11 KM hike will both start & finish at Leslie Subway Staiton.

All of the trails tonight will be on wide paved paths, which you can survive wearing running shoes on.

In terms of hills, probably about 3 of about 25 meters or more.

Sadly, there aren't really any washrooms available on this route.


Required Items to Bring:

Weather appropriate clothing

Comfortable footwear

Mask / Face covering

Water

Flashlight / Headlight

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

A Smile

First Aid Kit

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

We'll be meeting at the South-West corner of Sheppard Leslie, which is just outside Leslie Subway Station. Leslie station is located on the Sheppard Subway Line.

If arriving on the Subway Subway line, please exit the station following the signs marked "TO LESLIE STREET."

If you follow the the platform to the far east side, there is a corridor that will take you to the meeting point. If you don't know where the far east side of the platform is, follow the direction of the eastbound train.

If you go out an exit with a ticket booth or if there is a bus loop, you've gone the wrong way.

In terms of parking, there is a TTC commuter lot located on Old Leslie Road, south of Sheppard.
