Hike the ROM

Free with admission.


Hike the ROM trails are back for a limited time!

This winter, forget malls and slippery sidewalks. Instead, exercise your body and your mind inside our spacious galleries, away from inclement weather.

Hike the ROM walking trails take you on a journey of engaging and unexpected discovery through three floors of galleries. Designed to help you conquer your daily steps goals, each trail invites you to move at the speed you like, all while exercising your body and your mind. Two themed trails of different lengths are available. Each one is perfect for a morning stroll or a lunchtime break, all without sidewalks, mall aisles, or treadmills.

Want to learn more about the wild, natural world? Pick up the Walk on the Wild Side trail and head off on a roaring hike through the world of wild animals. We love bears, and you'll encounter some on this trail, along with other wild creatures that amaze and inspire. Estimated length: 1,000 steps.

Fascinated by all things immortal? Follow our Eternal Life trail for an intriguing look at how different cultures view life, death, and the afterlife. You'll encounter mythical beasts, tomb creatures, sarcophagi, and more. Estimated length: 1,200 steps.

Hike the ROM trailhead signs are located on Level 1 near the Bloor Street and Queen's Park entrances. Pick up your guide when you arrive, or download a copy in advance.
