What we're about

"Beyond Toronto Life" is an Urban Hiking Club, that aims at introducing Torontonians to the urban trails accessible to all via TTC (public transit).

The group also aims at bringing Torontonians together in a social settings that promotes collaboration, connecting with one another, breaking social barriers, and sharing beautiful moments together.

We try to hike biweekly, weather permitted, so if you miss a hike, you can always catch us on the next one.

We also occasionally throw in other events, including camping, swimming, and Bruce Trail hiking collaborations. If you have any ideas for events, or if you would like to help organize an event, please feel free to reach out so we can go Beyond."
