Riverdale Parks and Rosedale Valley Road

Most of my one hour hikes start close to home - on the pedestrian bridge over the Don Valley Parkway.

We cross the bridge, and if we are lucky, the gate to Riverdale Farm
 is open.
We saw these sheep as we passed by.

In order to get access to the Rosedale Valley Road, we crossed through Wellesley Park.

 Down the stairs, then up the Rosedale Valley Road, with St James Cemetery on our left.
Part way up the ascent, we crossed the road and took a steep climb back up the hill, arriving beside the Castle Frank Subway station.
West on Dale Ave, checking out the pedestrian bridge across the Rosedale Valley Road - closed until further notice!

Let's hope it is repaired or rebuilt soon.

We went south on Sherbourne, then had coffee and some gluten free brownies at the Timothy's on the corner.

Home again, down Parliament, back through Riverdale Farm.

This is one of my favourite short hikes: beautiful scenery, maximun green and minimum exhaust fumes, and good cardio opportunities.

Good Hiking!
