It’s been a long winter in Toronto, but spring has finally arrived. There are no leaves on the trees, and the cherry blossoms have yet to show, but a few more days of mild weather and it will be green and blooming everywhere. To start the warm weather hiking season, we begin with nice walk in the park – literally.
This portion of the Humber River Trail is located northwest of the city in Vaughan. Starting from Rutherford Road, the trail winds its way north for about 5 kilometers where it reaches the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, a museum and gallery in Kleinburg known for its Group of Seven artists. The trail is paved and there are few hills, making it very popular with families and bicyclists.
Having spent the winter months in Hong Kong, the one thing I really missed from Canada was blue skies and crisp fresh air. It’s great to be back!
