One enters a peaceful oasis – immediately unaware of busy Yonge Street. There are 2 loops making a figure eight. One ends up along a branch of the Don River plus a glimpse of Rosedale Golf Course through a locked gate, alas. The second loop follows the valley under a steep cliff. There are beautiful houses and gardens along both loops…..and we end up at the Miller Tavern. Many of the original estate homes and beautiful residences of the early to mid-20th century are being demolished in favour of large new homes but there are still many lovely homes to see on our walk.

Walmer Road has some idiosyncrasies. It goes north to south from just above St. Clair down to Bloor. But it’s not continuous or even direct. It’s interrupted by a ravine (Nordheimer), by Casa Loma, and by the railroad; it also has to wiggle sideways at times. So come and explore this interesting road, and we’ll throw in a little bit of Forest Hill Village to add to the fun.
