About

This is my favorite walk.  I’ve hiked many of the ravines and trails within the City of Toronto and have trekked through several sections of the Bruce Trail.  I always come back to this one.  It’s in the middle of the city, it’s uncomplicated, and it is easy to plan for half a day.  It is doable year round. The scenery is varied, from the heavily treed sections of Mud Creek, to the wetlands right before entering the Brickworks.  And at the Brickworks I always make a point of stopping in at the Belong Café for an amazing cup of coffee.  If you are tempted, they also serve the best Blueberry Scones you’re ever likely to taste.  It’s a nice place to take a short break before heading back into the trees for some more peaceful walking before winding back into the busy city streets.

A recent article in the Globe and Mail newspaper draws attention to this treasure of greenspace yet the difficulty one comes across while trying to navigate the trails.

All the more reason to organize a daily tour to bring people in.
