Toronto was where #metroscapes started. It was initially retracing my childhood steps, and something to do while my partner worked weekends. As I became more familiar with the lay of the land, it evolved into a hobby of learning and discovering Toronto’s ravines, parks, trails and open spaces.

This is now an archive of my adventures and discoveries there, between 2014 and 2019. But it is still a current and relevant resource that you can refer to at any time. Use the links below or the navigation bar at the top to explore further.
