Nordheimer – Casa Loma – Wychwood, October 26th

Thanks to Andrew Smith for organising this walk:

This walk is just under 5km and is NOT an Accessible Route – there are 2 major sets of stairs, one up, one down.

The walk is almost a full circle, we finish 1 block away from our start point.

10:00 am Meet at the St Clair West Subway Station entrance on the south side of St. Clair.

For those of you who just have to have coffee before starting, there is a Starbucks at the corner of Bathurst & St. Clair

If coming by TTC, you get to this exit via the concourse above track level.
If you are planning on arriving on a bicycle – there is a bike lock station by the subway entrance we are leaving from.
If you are driving – find your own dang parking spot!

The Route:
From the Subway Station down the Nordheimer Ravine to Spadina Ave – the bridge overhead.
Up the steps (all 62 of them) then take a right …. heading west to Walmer road.
South on Walmer Road, past the Casa Loma Stables and then in front of Casa Loma over to Spadina Park.
South, down through the park and down the Baldwin Steps (all 103 of them) to Davenport Road.
West along Davenport until you get to Bathurst St, where you will find the Tollkeepers Cottage Museum.
North (up the hill) to the first traffic light and then west along to the end of Alcina Avenue.
Turning left, south, on Wychwood Ave leads us into Wychwood Park. A Private Road community. Follow the road down around the pond and back up to where we came into the park.
North on Wychwood, stopping in or around the Wychwood Barns if you feel so inclined or depending on time.
Continuing on up Wychwood to St. Clair Avenue, then East to Bathurst.

I’m Andrew, the walk leader, if you don’t know me, I’m the short, scruffy, mouthy old guy with the red cap.

I don’t have a cell phone … so TFB .. Maybe someone who can guarantee they’ll be there can put their number here as “during walk contact”.
