Explore one of Toronto's wildest ravines. On this easy walking tour, you will learn how one of Toronto's unique features was formed during the last Ice Age. Hear fascinating tales of local history, see wildlife, and learn about the trees and flowers that flourish in this hidden world of Toronto's valleys. The walk ends at The Brick Works, a park and sustainable development project, where you will have an opportunity to see turtles, waterfowl and explore a farmers' market (on Saturdays and Sundays). You can also enjoy coffee, tea, locally-brewed craft beer and a meal on a patio (in good weather).

This walk is not suitable for children. I have tried taking kids, but the distance is too long for them, and they get bored. Since we want to observe wildlife, this walk is not suitable for dogs.
