Member Sponsored Events
NTSC does not organise programs during the off-season. Some of our members do and the events and activities are open to club members and friends alike. Non-members are most welcome.
Be advised that these activities are organized by individuals and not by "North Toronto Ski Club". For more information about a member-sponsored event, please contact the sponsoring member.
Sunday, October 2nd, 11:00 am
The next hike takes place this coming Sunday, October 2nd. We will be hiking from Rosedale Subway Station through the Cedarvale Ravine to the Beltline Trail to Davisville. We will complete approximately 11kms at a slow and steady pace. If you want to do a shorter hike or leave early, you can get the TTC at Lawrence West Subway Station or a bus along St. Clair or Eglinton.
Plan on end-of-hike refreshments with the group following the hike.
Hikers are reminded to bring a snack or lunch, and plenty of water for the trail. Hiking boots are recommended for this urban hike, as the trail can be wet in parts.
Where to Meet
Meet the group outside the main doors at Rosedale Station at 11am. TTC is recommended for this hike; parking near Rosedale can be expensive. Remember, some TTC lots have free parking on weekends.
Non-members are always welcome and it's a great way to learn more about NTSC.
For further details about the club's day hikes check out the schedule and helpful information posted on the NTSC website.
If you have any questions, please direct inquiries to Lesley Austin email@example.com.
