Toronto, Ontario Map

There are two big hill to go up. The one with the wide steps is awkward to climb. Difficult if you are 86 years old.

A beautiful walking trail along the river/Creek. There is an abundance of bird life, apparently coyotes but I've not had the pleasure of seeing one. It is a heavily cycled trail and folks go fast even though it's narrow and rarely warn walkers of their approach so stay alert.

Nice stroll, not many people.

This is my go to trail, being minutes from my home. Ideal for walking, biking and inline skating in some areas. I've spotted many deer, hurons, egrets, cormorants, coyotes, rabbits, otters, beavers snapping turtles, toads and snakes over the years. Even in the winter, deer like to come out of the woods, so always have your camera ready. Photo opps galore.

Did this walk on Oct 21, 2018 and I enjoyed it very much. There were two paths: one for pedestrians and one for cyclists. Very nice. I will definitely go again.

Nice trail

Beautiful trail in the heart of the city. Family friendly with lots to do in and around the area.

Wonderful view!
Late October weather was cold and windy, but the view was beautiful. The fall foliage season brought so much colour to the trees.

I love the Bluffs! First time seeing them in fall colours.

I haven't finished the entire trail yet but definitely intend to. The sound of the DVP isn't favourable but the trail itself is very versatile.

started at brickworks and headed up to mount pleasant where path is paved and flat (i.e. many families and strollers). coming back down through balfour park is not stroller friendly at all for about 1km, then there is a split, where a paved trail can be rejoined.

This is a perfect getaway close to downtown, both for walking and jogging, and with a bit of detour also for biking.

Eh, wheres the real hiking trail? My gps took me to toronto zoo so i had to go back to the bridge at old finch and park.

Fairly decent paved trail

Great for a leisurely walk with nice scenery. Amazing venue considering the devastation caused by Hurricane Hazel October 15-18, 1954 along the river route.

Nice paved trail to walk, run or bike. Dogs allowed on leash.

I'm lucky that this is my everyday commute. Great for walking, biking and birdwatching.

Simple, easy, lots of great picnic/bbq points along the path. Slow incline. The newer bridge at the parking lot might cause issues for some pet owners. One of our dogs is ok with it but it’s not the greatest on her paws, the other won’t cross it.

Great for strollers, bikes etc. Opposite side of river has a dirt path for mountain bikes/dogs to avoid the heavier traffic on the paved pathways which is nice. Tends to have sewer smells every single time I visit so it’s not my first choice of trail.
Has a fully enclosed off leash dog park at the DVP end and a decent amount of free parking.

Welcome To The Humber River Recreational Trail Out In Toronto, Ontario Canada!

This is another part of the Humber River Recreational Trail that we visited along the Humber River and What A Beautiful View it was with tons of Ducks Swimming In The River.

On This Bright Sunny Day: We also saw plenty of bike riders and trees with the leaves changing colors as well!

I want to personally Thank Allan for taking ME there back on Thursday, October 4, 2018.

Sincerely yours,

Single track trail for novice to advanced mtb riders. However, there are some sections that need maintenance with fallen trees obstructing the path. The east side of the river is rideable for the most part whereas the west side is more of a hiking trail. This was my experience of the Etobicoke Creek Trail from the Queensway to Dundas East side https://youtu.be/KvvNNMdujb8

Love going to the top of the cliffs at this bluffs.

Parking was difficult to find if you just drove to the coordinate provided. The trail itself was quite pleasant, flat with some views of small lakes and streams. Probably even prettier with the fall colours a few weeks later!

Pretty view, but slightly crowded on weekends. Not all pavement is smooth but it’s a flat, easy long bike ride to do

Boring walk. I prefer it for bike riding. Great views of the city though.

its always a nice walk to go on on a nice sunny day

Would classify this as easy for biking! Lots of little trails off the main paved pathway (for walking or mountain biking).

I agree to some of the comments. The trial map is 30% not accurate. Admin please fix this. This is misleading. There are a lot of stretches where there are no trails. I have tried doing this on my mountain bike.
