Here’s an easy way to find walking tours in Toronto and Ontario – especially if you don’t want to walk alone. Momentum1 ‘Community in Motion’ has launched a new website that combines the walking program of the Toronto Trails Festival and its offshoots Ontario Walks, The HIKEsters, and M1 Explores Club.
The walks are a great way to see the city and experience the benefits of walking in the company of others. It’s the brainchild of Tom Fiore who founded Toronto Trails Festival 13 years ago. Walks are free, they are open to all ages and they encompass various levels of difficulty – from easy to challenging. Past walks in the city included Scarborough Bluffs, the Humber River, and the Rouge Valley. I joined a walk to Centre Island and loved the autumn views and friendly atmosphere.
The fall walking season is underway. It starts Sunday, September 20th and runs to Sunday, November 8th. Walks begin at 10am and end in the early afternoon. Here’s the events calendar.
