Scarborough Bluffs, May 25th

Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

Fingers crossed for some good weather!

Domnic suggested Scarborough Bluffs and Pauline found a route on AllTrails.com

Meet at 10:00am near the building between the main parking lots. (Click on photo to enlarge it)

FYI, the 175 bus runs down Bluffer’s Park Road, just past the meeting point.

The route follows one of the official trails north past the yacht club. There are two loops; depending on time & weather, the group might walk one or both of them. (Click on image to enlarge it)

At the east end of the parking lot, near the sailing school, there’s Bluffer’s Restaurant and the Dogfish Pub.

Leaderless – Broadview & Danforth, April 27th

Wednesday, April 24th, 2019

Another leaderless walk; the area was suggested by Michael Whiston.

Meet at 10:00am on Saturday, April 27th.
Congregate at Broadview & Danforth, on the south-east corner – the Tim Hortons has a blank wall where we won’t be in the way!

(Some people may be going for breakfast at New York Cafe beforehand.)

From Broadview & Danforth the group can decide where to go – there’s Riverdale Park East to the south, shuttle buses to the Brickworks just on the far side of Broadview station, or the Danforth itself.

Leaderless – Winter Stations, February 23rd

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Back to the Beaches for a special event.

Meet at 10:00am on Saturday, February 23rd.

Congregate at the Tim Hortons at Woodbine Beach. (1681 Lake Shore Blvd E, just south-east of Coxwell and Lake Shore.)

The six Winter Stations are on Woodbine Beach; from there the group might decide to head east along the boardwalk, west along Queen, or somewhere else – it’s up to those who are there!

Leaderless in the Beaches, January 26th

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

We’ve not explored the East End in a while.

Meet at 10:00am on Saturday, January 26th. (The weather forecast looks cold so wrap up; bring spare batteries if you can and keep them warm too!)

We’ll congregate at Remarkable Bean, 2242 Queen St E (at Beech Ave).

Starting at the R.C.Harris Water Treatment Plant – it’s very close to Neville Loop, at the east end of the Queen streetcar route.

I’m sure we’ll wander around there for a while, and then probably head west along the boardwalk before finding somewhere on Queen Street for lunch. Maybe more walking after lunch if people are interested.
