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.
Please post a message on how many passengers you can take. Please state if you plan on staying for refreshment and/or dinner.
Please plan on sharing gas/admission costs with the driver. est $50 per car (incl $11/car admission fee). It might cost more for further distance, less for a trail nearby. Please prepare exact change. In the past we had passengers who did not bring small bills, which made an awkward situation for everybody.
If you are organizing your own carpool, please use our Facebook website. 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.
We meet at the trailhead around 11:30 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 water, hat, sun block, bug spray, walking stick, camera.

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.
