EVENT DETAILS

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, the random hike generator picked a Fletcher classic. I've led this hike 10 times in the past and is one of my favorites.

Today's 12 KM hike will both start and finish at Castle Frank Station.

The route will be on a combination of neighborhood sidewalks, wide gravel trails, paved park paths and even through a schoolyard at one point.

In terms of hills, there's probably about 5 climbs. 2 staircases and maybe 3 slight climbs.

I have a washroom break planned for about 30 minutes into the hike at the Brickworks.


Required Items to Bring:
  • Mask / Face Covering
  • Good footwear
  • Weather appropriate clothing
  • Water 1-2 L and snacks
  • Recommended Items to Bring:
    Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

    First aid kit

    How to Get There:
    Event Directions:

    Castle Frank Subway Station is located on the Bloor Subway Line, two stops east of Yonge Station.

    Let's meet at the Castle Frank Road Exit. If its cold or wet, then I'll just be inside the station doors.
    That exit is the eastern exit from the platform, also the one with the escalator.
    If you don't know where the eastern side of the platform is, then follow the direction of the eastbound train.

    For those of you driving, Castle Frank Station is located on the north-west corner of Bloor & Castle Frank Road.

      In terms of parking, you can park for free
    • on the south side of Mackenzie Avenue, which is located one block north of Bloor, east of Castle Frank Road
    • or the north side of Dale Avenue, located 2 blocks north of Bloor, also east of Castle Frank Road
