Scarborough Hikes to the Greenbelt For the Greenbelt!

Saturday November 26 at 1:00pm

Warden Hilltop Community Centre

25 Mendelssohn St, Scarborough, ON M1L 0G6

All residents of Toronto are invited to join Scarborough to walk all or part of the greenway from Warden Hilltop Community Centre to Rouge National Urban Park and the Greenbelt.

Join the Rail Trail Rangers of the Scarborough Junction Community to show your support for the proposed West Scarborough Rail Trail, preserving the Greenbelt and opposition to Bill 23 that threatens to diminish the Greenbelt and the responsibility of Conservation Authorities to protect our cities and natural areas.

4 hikes of different distances will be offered to accommodate all levels of hiker:

Family Hike – 2 km/30 min. from Warden Hilltop to Birchmount Rd. and back.

Beginner Hike – 4 km/45 min. from Warden Hilltop to Kennedy Subway Station and back

Intermediate Hike – 7 km/90 min. from Warden Hilltop C.C. to the Meadoway and back

Advanced Hike * – 15 km/3.5 hrs. from Warden Hilltop C.C. to Rouge National Urban Park one way (self-shuttle or pick up required for this hike).

All hikes will follow the proposed West Scarborough Rail Trail along the Scarborough Hydro Green Space, the Meadoway and the Gatineau Hydro Corridor Trail.

If you would like to meet along the way to hike your local section with us you are most welcome!
