Starting from Étienne Brûlé Park, you will carry the heavy, historically important (to you) stuff you bring and help others carry a bunch of canoes along the Davenport Trail. The trail runs north along the Humber River then turns east at Lambton Park on what used to be a sand bank. Further east the 'trail' meets the ancient shoreline of Lake Iroquois and follows it east across Garrison and Taddle Creeks. The trail then follows Yellow Creek back to the Brickworks.
If you are feeling more energetic, join us early at the Brickworks and paddle / shimmy a canoe down the Don River, along Toronto's waterfront, and up the Humber River to the start of the portage.
If you really want to punish yourself, or are looking for a way to earn the Order of Canada but don't have any other realistic options, notify your next of kin and then join us before sunrise at Allenby School for a run down to the Brickworks, the start of the paddle.
