Although you can begin the Eastern Ravine & Beaches Discovery Walk at any point along the route, a good starting point is the northern end of the enchanting Glen Stewart Ravine. Follow this ravine down to the Lake Ontario shore and explore the Eastern Beaches and its boardwalk. Along the way, you’ll visit an Art Deco water treatment plant and a charming Beaches neighbourhood.

GETTING THERE   AND BACK: You can reach the suggested starting point on public transit, by taking the 64 MAIN bus south from Main Street Station on the BLOOR/DANFORTH subway and get off at Kingston Road. The 501 QUEEN streetcar east from Queen Station on the YONGE subway also provides service into the area including the suggested tour end point.
