Meet at about 10:00 am in front of the St. Clair West Subway Station on St. Clair Ave. West. We will begin the walk at 10:10 sharp.
We will walk about 8 km in one big loop, returning to the St. Clair West Subway Station. The planned route is all on city streets and includes walking up a set of fairly steep steps called the Baldwin Steps, which we will climb slowly but surely. There are 110 steps.
There may be parking lots close to the subway station, or there may be street parking available on nearby side streets. But the best choice would be to use the subway.
No scheduled subway outages have been posted yet, but please check https://www.ttc.ca/service-advisories/subway-service#e=0 in case there are any changes.
