A beautiful, easy trail that traverses beautiful wooded area on easy paved paths where you wouldn't even know you're in the city. Then suddenly the lake appears in front of view - a beautiful vista. A ride along the lakeshore is lovely as well. We did about 9 km round trip starting from the Highland Creek Parking lot and rode east. Go for it!
Did about 1/2 of this trail for a quick walk yesterday. An amazing wilderness in the city. On the way back we sung by and skirted the tennis courts they have built on the U of T campus for the PanAm games. Amazing thick of growth forest and wetlands on one side, Highland Creek on the other - it's a great choice for a trail without leaving the city. Parking is right along Old Kingston Road - you can't miss it.
