Meet at about 10:00 AM at York Mills Subway Station, on the ground floor at the information desk (near where the Starbucks used to be). We will begin the walk at 10:10 sharp.
We will walk in a loop from York Mills (Yonge Line) through the York Mills / St. Andrews areas, then through Windfields Park and return via Hoggs Hollow to the starting point. Total distance is about 12 kms. There will be drop out points when we cross Bayview Avenue in both directions, at about 5 and 9 Km. There will be 1 bathroom break & 1 coffee stop at Bayview Avenue & York Mills Road.
The route will be on city streets and paved pathways, so please wear shoes or boots appropriate for the weather.
There are a couple of parking lots within about 500 m of the start of the walk. There may be street parking available on nearby side streets, but the best choice may be to use the subway.
No scheduled subway outages have been posted yet, but please check Subway service (ttc.ca) in case there are any changes.
