Beautiful trail but there was no parking from the directions given by the app. I had to park at a condo promotional office.

Lots of pokemon go players for any pokemon go aficionados. Very wheelchair accessible

One of my favourite hikes. Very easy walk with great views. My dog loves to join me. At a steady pace, it takes about 45 minutes. Note that weekends can get really busy. If you want to avoid the crowds, get there early or head over during the week.

Easy gravel trail that was great for a walk/hike with my 5 year old with varying scenery. The access point on Yonge St. is the closest to the lake, but does not have public parking. There is a public lot on Old Colony Rd past the soccer fields a couple km in.

My favourite spot to get away. Great hike by the water with scenic stops as you march forward. Don’t stop once you reach the end of the loop, head back the way you came.

Trail is closed until spring of 2019. Disappointed, but it’s all for the better!!

Running there myself and with friends for quite a few times. Gravel base so not much mess. It can start from varieties location and connects you to other trails bond lake. Not technical trails at all, and almost no tree and shade.

Good neighbourhood trail. Easy accessible. Well maintained.

This is my favourite trail with my dog. We usually make a round walk of lake. Less than an hour, slow walking along a beautiful lake and trees refresh us. Today was 10 degree in the afternoon. Lovely November day.

It was a bit windy when I started on Old Colony rd being in the open, but then there is more trees so it gets warmer. I took the trail around bond lake for the return, cutting back on old colony rd. That section was my favourite being in the trees and having amazing views of the lake. Main trail surface is crushed lime stones.

Beautifully maintained trails. Main trail is tiny white gravel. the trail around the lake is a bit more technical but not by much. Great time to spend an hour or two hiking around Bond lake. very enjoyable and pleasent.

As a trail, it is really nice considering it is in an urban area. The trail is flat, gravel, with moderate ups and downs. Between Bathurst and Yonge it is open area whereas mostly shaded between Yonge and Bayview. There are parkings on each of the three major crossing roads.
The greatest problem is lack of any facilities along the trail, including in the parkings. At least bring a portable toilet in each parking, if not a real bathroom with running water.
Once you are aware of the facility issue and prepare in advance, it is lovely up-to-16 km trail, and will visit it again, for sure.

Beautiful trail, but it deserves a 4 star because we followed the lake margin trail, otherwise (if we'd followed the main trail) it would be a 3...

Great trail for geocaching. Too bad there's some littering along the trail trail, but otherwise a beautiful lake.

This is a nice family easy trail. I enjoy walking around both ponds instead of going the traditional route. It's longer and more scenic

Great view

Not that great I went there a long time ago like last May and it's too close to houses and it doesn't feel like your in a nature trail also its kind of boring especially when you have to bike 13km to get there.

Great short hike for kids and a fun playground

It is not so impressive. Too close to the residential area. Loss a little bit nature sense. Two small pond part of city rain water project. See some geese and ducks in the later spring.
