Explore the summer weather on an island walk with Sport & Rec and Let's Hike T.O.! 

This ~6km walk will take us from one side of Toronto Island to the other. After the walk, participants are welcome to continue exploring the island on thier own. 

Sport & Rec will cover the cost of ferry tickets for students registered for the walk, and arriving on time (by 1 p.m. sharp). 

The route is approximately 6 km, consisting of mostly paved terrain. 

Start end end points. We'll start the hike at the Jack Layton ferry terminal, meeting by the statue of Jack Layton riding a bicycle. We'll end the hike at Ward's Island ferry, for participants to either ferry back to mainland, or continue exporing the island on your own. 

What to bring. We encourage you to bring a water bottle, comfortable walking shoes, and a fully charged phone or camera for photos (and maybe some snacks for the walk!). 

Participants are also welcome to bring games and equipment like frisbees, spikeball, picnic blankets, etc. to enjoy on the island after the walk has ended. 

Please also bring rain gear if it is in the forecast. 

Route. Hike route to come soon. Please note the hike route this may change due to hazards, closures, or construction.
