Crothers Woods is a 52-hectare mature maple-beech-oak woodland located in the Don River valley. Many trees in Crothers Woods are more than a century old, with parts of the forest remaining in much the same condition as it was before European settlement. In 1995, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) designated this site as an Environmentally Significant Area due to its diverse, mature and relatively undisturbed forest and the presence of herbaceous plants and tree species that are rare in the Toronto region.

We are not meeting at Yonge and York Mills!
Everyone must go directly to the trailhead, there is no need to car pool because you can get there using the TTC.
We will start the hike at 10:45am.
From the Don Valley Parkway...
The trails are moderately difficult for the most part, narrow with a dirt surface, roots, rocks and lots of elevation changes. This is not a “city” hike, this is a real hike, just in the city. It is shorter than our usual hike at about seven kilometres, so expect to be done mid-afternoon.
The TRCA discourages the use of these trails when they are muddy so please check the High Park Hiking Club website and/or meetup page early Nov.13 to be sure the hike is running.
