amazing woods right in the middle of the city - 20 min bike ride from my house so am always so appreciative of how close the nature is here and how easily i can get to the woods from my apartment .... i go there...More
The hike was very nice. There is mostly a rugged foot path to follow. We parked at the Loblaws on Redpath and entered through the trailhead. The path is not always well marked and there are many off-shoots that sometimes lead you away from the...More
A very beautiful forest that can keep you going for a good long hike.
But I must say it is pretty dangerous for people walking with the way the cyclists speed. They are speeding along tight turns and edges where a walker does not have...More
Crothers Woods is a hidden gem. It is easily accessible by TTC. Bus no 56 stops at Millwood and Redway and it is a short walk to the Trailhead by the Loblaws Parking Lot. Mind you it is mainly used by bikers, but they are...More

East York includes a portion of old, industrial Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere. The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York
allure. The other draw is for foodies: lovers of Bangladeshi fare will find authentic restaurants and markets in the area, with raw spices and desserts. East York also represents a lot of Toronto's Serbian food culture, and recently, has had an outcropping of solid microbrewery stops. For families, the science center is a favored weekend stop.
