Markham Ride-Milne Dam Conservation Park

Located on the east side of McCowan Rd and south of Hwy 7.

This park is the largest park in Markham. It is bound by thick forest on the southern and eastern edges with the Rouge River running through the middle. Over two kilometres of trails are suitable for walking, jogging, and cycling. Milne Park is a stop-off point for many migratory birds, and can be best viewed in the early mornings and evenings during spring and fall. for more information see the link!

    Hello Mette, welcome to meet up. The trial is about that long according to the web sit. But we would be doing the trial in the park. After that perhaps dinner? But it would be up to the group and time. I hope that helps. Michael my want to join you if he is taking the GO up?

    Hi Michael depending on what time you get off work you could hop on the go train and get off at unionvill station Kennedy and hwy 7. Then either bus across or bike if you can't get a ride? I hope that helps.
