High Park Hiking Club

Hiking in the Greater Toronto Area! Each Sunday (mostly) during the spring and fall, we meet to car pool to parks and trails and go hiking. If you want a low impact work-out, fresh air and new people to meet, check us out.

We carpool from Old York Mills Road, usually at 10:00am. Always, always, always check our hike instructions.

Our hike leader has pre-hiked the trails for Sunday. Not suprisingly, they are muddy and treacherous. We expect them to be in bad shape on Sunday. It will not be safe, and it will be bad for the trails. Regretfully, we must cancel the hike. Perhaps we can set up a city walk! Keep checking this website.

We are watching the weather for tomorrow. The weather report predicts freezing rain, and unnecessary driving is not recommended. Tomorrow's hike to Bolton is canceled. It sounds like a lot of fun, so we will get it back into the schedule, later in the season.
