Old Mill leaderless walk, July 27th

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019

Meet at 10:00am at Old Mill subway station. There’s an island in front of the station’s doors but it’s not TTC property, so it should be ok to meet there.

From there the walkers can decide where to go; there’s a trail beside the Humber River to the north and south, King’s Mill Park and Park Lawn cemetery to the south-west, or other options as the group decides.

Leaderless West End Walk, June 8th

Wednesday, June 5th, 2019

Forecast for Saturday is warm, so this walk starts near the lake.

Meet at 10:00am at Queen West and Strachan Ave, near the entrance to Trinity Bellwoods Park.

This is a leaderless walk, so the walkers will decide which way to go.

Heading down Strachan towards the lake will take you to Coronation Park, which is where the World Naked Bike Ride starts at noon.
Nearby there’s also Fort York and Liberty Village to the south; Little Italy and Little Portugal to the north and west; and of course the start point is Trinity Bellwoods Park.

Note: Line 1 between Lawrence and Bloor-Yonge stations will be closed all day Saturday.

Congregate at the amphitheatre at the north-west corner of Queen West and Dufferin.

The group will decide where to go, but the start point is not far from Liberty Village, Trinity Bellwoods Park, and Parkdale.

Hair of the Dog, January 1st 2019

Sunday, December 23rd, 2018

As is tradition for TOPW (despite last year‘s postponement of the dip) we will kick off the year with the Hair of the Dog walk on January 1st.

Meet: 11am on the beach/boardwalk by Sunnyside Pavillion [map]
There’s usually a huge crowd, so we normally break up into smaller groups in order to find spots from which to shoot.

After the dip (about 12:30pm) we’ll head to a bar. (Firkin on the Bay, 68 Marine Parade Drive – confirmed)

There’s no walk planned after lunch; we usually sit around and chat for most of the afternoon.

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

We don’t have a leader for the next scheduled walk, so it’ll be a Leaderless one.

Meet at 10:00am at the entrance to Trinity Bellwoods Park (Queen West and Strachan).
Without a leader, it’s up to the group to decide on a route.
