Please check our schedule for updates: http://hphc.ca/Schedule.html.

For carpooling, please read http://www.hphc.ca/ShowingUp.html

As usual, we meet 10 am at York Mills Subway Station to organize carpooling.(Old York Mills Rd Passenger Pick-up and Drop-off Point).

We always have more drivers than passengers; you don't have to reserve a seat ahead of time, just show up before 10 am and we will arrange one on the spot.

Drivers

Please post a message on how many passengers you can take. Please state if you plan on staying for refreshment and/or dinner.

Passengers

Carpool est $40 per car. Please prepare exact change. In the past we had passengers who did not bring small bills, which made an awkward situation for everybody.

For west end carpool, we suggest Kipling Station as a meeting point because it is close to the highway and has passenger pick up parking. The usual common sense and personal safety precaution is advised; please note that people offering/requesting rides might not be members of our club.

Itinerary

We meet at the trailhead around 11:15 am.
We stop for lunch at around 1:30pm (pack your own).
We should finish the hike around 3:00pm to 4:00pm.

Remember to bring too much water, hat, sun block, poncho, walking stick.

Additional Note

We usually go for a refreshment after the hike. Sometimes we even stay for dinner. This is not compulsory, but it does add to the fun. There are many nice restaurants out in the countryside, it is a good opportunity to experience their fine fares. I would like to extend an invitation to all the hikers: whether you are a drivers or a passenger, when you sign up for the hike, please plan on joining us for some social afterwards. If you must rush back to Toronto, please make it known at carpool time, so that we can group the drivers and passengers together.

Our membership form is up on the internet You can print it off and either mail it in, or bring it to the hike.

Hiking is a dangerous activity; each participant agrees to assume his/her own risks. If you are new to hiking, please start with a Level 1 hike. Hike leader's decision is final.

See you on the trail.

    Is there any info on distance and pace for this hike? It will be my first time out and I want to be sure I'm up for it :) thanks!

    • Jonathan

      Please see the first post at the bottom of this page... no pace or distance yet, but the hike is shorter than average, and is suitable for beginners.

      1 · October 21, 2013

  • Debbie M

    Hi Hikers:
    This is a shorter than average hike suitable for beginners - but please wear sturdy shoes for a bit of climbing (ladder & rocks).
