High Park Hiking Club

Hiking in the Greater Toronto Area! Each Sunday (mostly) during the spring and fall, we meet to car pool to parks and trails and go hiking. If you want a low impact work-out, fresh air and new people to meet, check us out.

We carpool from Old York Mills Road, usually at 10:00am. Always check our hike instructions.

Tuesday July 8
Tracy Horsman is running a hiking trip to Letchworth State Park, New York State. See our Longer Trips page for more details. We are running a July hike! This is our Balls Falls Winery Tour, on Saturday, July 19.
Wednesday June 25
We do not have a hike for this coming Sunday. Our spring hiking season is at an end. Never fear. We are working on our program for next fall. Meanwhile, keep watching this spot. We are considering running a hike for each of July and August. Probably, these will be easy hikes, suitable for beginners. We will update this site, and MeetUp when we have something. Thank you all very much for making all of our effort worthwhile. Thank you to all of our hike leaders. Without you, nothing happens.
Wednesday June 18
This coming Sunday, we are hiking Primrose Boyne River with hike leader Howard Gibson.
Tuesday June 10
This coming Sunday, hike leader Duke Duyck is taking us to Humber Valley Heritage Trail. This is a shorter version of what we have done in the past. All of the really serious hills are still there, so you still need good hiking boots.
Tuesday June 3
Our next is to Royal Botannical Gardens with hike leader Bill Baird.
Wednesday May 28
This Sunday's hike is to Kelso, with Mo Penton.
Wednesday May 21
Our next is another Saturday hike, this time to Niagara Gorge with Bob Freeman. This hike is fairly short and the pace will be slow, but given the rocks, and the long climb out of the gorge, this should regarded as Level 3 difficulty.
Wednesday May 14
Our upcoming hike is at the end of a long drive, so we are hiking on Saturday. This will be a car shuffle from Osler to Singhampton. This hike has lots of hills, and we are going through Singhampton Caves. This hike is not recommended for beginners.
Wednesday May 7
On Sunday, we are hiking Forks of the Credit, with Jennifer Rowbotham.
Tuesday April 29
This coming weekend, our group will be going out on Saturday. Rather than having a hike, we will be helping the Caledon Hills part of the Bruce Trail with trail maintenance. Bring sturdy working gloves. Practice feeling smug for when we lead a hike through this place.
Tuesday April 22
We have a hike for next weekend! On Sunday, we are hiking with Andrea Moses at Hockley Valley North. Before then, you can meet us at High Park Ski Club's Fun In The Sun night, Thursday April 24, at the Lithuanian Hall.
Wedensday April 16
This Sunday's hike is to Seaton Trail with Andrea Moses.
Wednesday April 9
We had perfect weather last Sunday. Let's try again! This coming Sunday, we are hiking at Lowville with hike leader Debbie McDermott.
