ROSEDALE is a neighbourhood ready-made for urban explorers

. . . and a subway runs through it.  Get off at ROSEDALE station, walk east, and explore downtown’s version of Beverly Hills.  Spring is a good time to reconnoiter this neighbourhood.  It’s foliage-free at the moment, allowing unobstructed views of mansions, bridges and ravines.  A city bus circles the area, and subway trains pass by every 2-3 minutes.  Perfect hiking terrain.
