YORK DURHAM TOUR SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 16th, 2023
9:45 am Sharp
Our Drivers meeting will be at 9:50 am and we will depart at 10:00 am. (Bring a full gas tank and an empty bladder! )
Our meeting point is at Tim Horton’s, 8129 Sheppard Ave East @ Morningside Avenue. This is the Tim’s next to Wendy’s, not to be confused with the takeout at the nearby Esso station.
We start by exploring the wilds of Scarborough, north of the Toronto Zoo, traversing the single lane Old Finch Avenue Bailey Bridge, followed by a crossing of Toronto’s only vehicular suspension bridge and a bit later, a third single lane bridge. We will skirt the corner of York Region as we travel east into Durham Region, through Whitevale, on our way to enjoy some squiggly roads. Then on to Goodwood, where we can see some exterior locations used in the Schitt’s Creek TV series.
Heading west, back into York Region, we search for some more curvy roads, drive around Musselman’s Lake, and continue north on the Ninth Line, towards our lunch stop at the Rose Family Farm (www.rosefamilyfarm.ca), where we will find a washroom, a farm store and a chip truck. They grow their own potatoes! (Reviews: “Freshest French Fries around” and “Best fries ever!”). The farm store has
seasonal produce, corn, potatoes, squash, and pumpkins.
There is a guest washroom, also some tables and numerous trees under which we can picnic. A folding chair would be advisable.
After lunch we continue west following the twists and ups and downs of Herald Road, eventually working our way south where we will finish around 2:00 pm, at Cathedral Town in the village of Victoria Square in Markham.
