After a day's work, come and "cool off" on the Toronto Islands free of fumes and traffic to enjoy the view of the city skyline and Toronto's own beautiful island parkland oasis away from the city. Pack a dinner for a sit-down picnic. Note that food is not available for purchase on the islands early in the season. Bring a warm jacket and flashlight. Return ticket for the ferry is approximately $8.70, $5.60 for seniors. The hike will take place rain or shine. Toronto Island Evening Hikes will take place every Thursday in May and June, same time and meeting place. The route and time we return to the city may vary depending if the ferries are running on the Spring or Summer (starts in May) schedule. Contact Hike Leaders via the Contact form for further information or to confirm the current ferry schedule that will be in place the week of the hike. Registration is not required for this hike - just meet the Hike Leader at the above location.
