The Most Scenic Spring Hikes Near Toronto

Spring has arrived and we're ready to hike!

With the gorgeous weather we’ve been having, it’s safe to say spring has finally arrived! This means no more hiding in your tiny apartment from the brutal Canadian winter, it’s time to get out of hibernation mode and experience the great outdoors!

And of course, half the fun in hiking is capturing the sights along the way. Be ready to snap (and share!) with the revolutionary camera on the Galaxy S9. Happy trails!
