I had that excitement in mind when Nate and I decided to head out on a walk this past Saturday morning. We headed to Moore Park Ravine and ended up rambling down to Brickworks in the Don Valley, where we bought some hot drinks and pickled beets at the organic market before heading home.
It was such a pretty walk; I absolutely recommend trying it.
Remember to wear decent footwear. The path can be mucky, especially in the spring and fall.
Upon entering off Heath, you'll find yourself on a footbridge that spans the ravine. At the east end of the footbridge, veer left and follow the path that leads you down, below the footbridge, and onto the main path. On the main path, you'll see directional signs.
Walking south along the path will take you to Brick Works and the Evergreen organic market - if it's open. Either way, Brick Works is a nice place to turn around and head back, especially if you're not looking to ramble all day.
The southbound stroll will take you only about 25 or 30 minutes (going very slowly). And it's really beautiful. You won't be sorry.
