Outdoor Club of East York


OCEY Hiking


Hiking, nature walks, camping and lodge trips are scheduled throughout the year in areas near Toronto and further afield.

Many outings are single day trips departing in carpools on weekend mornings from the East York Community Centre (in east-end Toronto).

We generally have a once-a-month hours evening hike/walk with pub or restaurant stop after.

Hikes vary in length and difficulty, and day hikes usually include a stop for lunch on the trail.

Nature walks cover less ground but enjoy more stops to look at nature.

Message from the Hiking Coordinator (Nov 2016)

This has been a wonderful fall for hiking, with lovely sunny days and beautiful fall colours. We had some new hike leaders with new ideas for wilderness hikes and urban walks.

This winter you will find many activities to keep you active and outdoors until spring arrives, from hikes and urban walks to mid-week ice skating and snowshoeing events. At the beginning of April and May, there will be beginner hikes designed for members who are new to hiking. It will be an opportunity to do a shorter hike to meet club members, and to learn about footwear, gear, and places to hike. There is something for everyone to enjoy.

The club will again offer a hike leader training session on January 25th for members who want to learn more about leading hikes and/or urban walks.

Thank you to all of the members who have led hikes and urban walks over the past year. The volunteer leaders make OCEY such a great club. We need more of you. If you are interested in leading a hike or an urban walk, please contact me at maureen.mcfarland@gmail.com or 416-489-3703 to explore the possibility further.
