Meeting Point for Vista and Orchard Trails:
Roadside parking area near Pearse House/Rouge Valley Conservation Centre, 1749 Meadowvale Road at Zoo Road - follow signs for Rouge Valley Conservation Centre
Driving north on Meadowvale: head north past Sheppard, and take the ramp leading to Toronto Zoo. As the ramp approaches traffic lights, the road divides. Take the right divide, and drive into the open parking area.
Driving south on Meadowvale: follow signs for Toronto Zoo main parking, taking a ramp leading to an overpass. Turn left to take the overpass, past the traffic lights and into the open parking area.
Parking is free. Porta Pottie is at the Orchard/Cedar trailhead, a 16 minute return walk from the meeting point. All walks will pass this porta pottie on the way out or on the way back.
PLEASE: use the roadway parking, and not the small lot set aside for the Rouge Valley Conservation Centre staff and volunteers.
TTC: Bus 85 (from Don Mills Subway or Rouge Hill GO Station) or 86 (from Kennedy Subway) via Toronto Zoo. Please check TTC seasonal schedules for these routes to help plan your journey, as branches and days of service change. Once you are heading up Meadowvale on your bus, get off at the stop up the ramp off Meadowvale before the traffic lights (i.e. before the bus turns to go to the Zoo itself). Walk east about 1 minute to see the Rouge Valley Conservation Centre/Pearse House.
