Most often when I set out to walk along the banks of the Humber, I take local transit to Scarlett Road and Eglinton. However, to begin this blog, I am posting a photo which I took while on an Out and Out Hike near the town of Bolton, some miles further north. Yes - this is the Humber but nearer its source.
Beginning the walk south from Scarlett Road and Eglinton, the river is larger than it is up near Bolton.
At two separate locations in what is now the City of Toronto, there are gardens that were planted by the wives of early settlers. One of them is the Jane Gardens on the west bank of the Humber (the other will be mentioned in a blog about a hike along the Scarborough Bluffs to the east of the city center).
Leaving Jane Gardens, the path passes through a grove of evergreens and I love the play of light and shadow.
The pathway along the Humber River joins the Martin Goodman bicycle path where the latter crosses the stream
