Hamilton, June 3rd

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

Jerome is leading our next walk which will be in Hamilton. We’ll use a similar route to the one we followed last time but with a shorter version of the afternoon section.

Date: Saturday June 3rd.

Meet: 10:15am at Hamilton GO station. [map]

GO Transit travel options: Google; GO Transit.

For those of you driving, there are several parking lots within a short walking distance of the Hamilton GO station; Google Maps is your friend! Alternatively, you can park at the Aldershot GO station for free, and get a day pass to Hamilton and back; this saves you the agony of negotiating downtown Hamilton’s many one-way streets!

The morning route stays close to the GO station for you latecomers! 😉

Lunch: Cat ‘n’ Fiddle (confirmed)
174 John Street,
905.525.3855

Post-walk: The Pheasant Plucker (confirmed)
20 Augusta Street,
905.529.9000
The pub is about a two minute walk from the GO station.
Hashtag: please use “TOPW2017rs”

**If you’re joining us after the start, call us and we’ll let you know where we are (Saturday = Jerome, 289-242-7033).

Riverdale, May 20th

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Even though I planned this walk, hopefully we’ll have good weather for it 🙂

Meet: 10:00 am at the Tim Hortons at Gerrard and Blackburn (547 Gerrard St East) – yes, the same place we met to start the Focus on Gerrard walk.

Morning route: Head north beside Bridgepoint then across the Don and over to Riverdale Farm. How long we have at the farm depends on our pace. From there we’ll go south on Sumach to Spruce, then over to Parliament. [map]

Lunch: Stout Irish Pub, 221 Carlton (confirmed)

Afternoon: I’ve sketched a route zigzagging up to the Bishop & Belcher, just across from Bloor-Yonge station, but we can improvise.
