More of biking trail than hiking but it was okay.

Gets too crowded in the summer, it has lost the feel of being on a nice quiet wildness hike, too many people using it now

its not a bad short hike if you are in the area, the trail is part paved and part gravel (kitty litter) allot of thick bush, not very scenic but nice on a hot summer day as most of is shaded from the trees, the trail runs along a man made drainage culvert that is made to look like a creek

Awesome park right in the city. They offer different trails that span from easy to medium. If you're training for a run or an obstacle race this is a great place to train due to different terrain. They have a huge playground for kids, a garden for those who just wants to sit and relax, a free zoo where you can pet and feed llamas, and a restaurant right inside the park. This is the baby version of Central Park. A must visit.

Visit there from time to time for trail running. It is a moderate hiking trail in most of the area but some area can be hard with narrow beside cliffs (although the cliff only 50 to 75 ft), muddy, full of stones and tree roots steep as 40 to 50 degree climb elevation. The map didn't completely showing everything.

This time I do a trail running in circle with bunny run on the other side 2 weeks ago again. Some places are still wet, muddy and tree fell in 2 places. also some wood small bridges path has some losses. MTB, run or hiking if you don't mind some mud and a little bit off trail. Bunny run on the east side of the river is nice and dry.

Nice boardwalk; plenty of parking at 10am; easy access to beach; many dogs were off leash on the beach. Bike trail parallel to boardwalk; access to washrooms ( some closed for the season). Western end was more scenic with views of the city and more of a hikers trail compared to the Eastern boardwalk area. A bit crowded in the boardwalk area. Less crowded in the trail areas.

Near where I grew up. I swam in the radioactive waters basically my whole life so I’m fucked but it’s home.

Good for rollerblading

Went Trail Running quite a few time (at least 5 times) over there in Winter and Summer. I only met one Trail Runner so far. 85% are MT Bikers. and 10% are hikers. Most of people bike/run/hike over the west side trail over because it is longer and connect to Crother Wood, Brick Works and then Lower Don Trail and so many trails and park. If you run slow like over 6:30 you shouldn't have problem. Part of the elevation is high and run is narrow, but yeah, just respect the trail and you should be fine. it is pretty now in the fall Sept to Oct. Rather I recommend the east side over the ET Seton park from Arrow shooting yard to the ET Seton park #3 park lot. It's elevation is higher. BTW, great scenes and challenging running.

Very pleasant walk in the park.
Very easy. A Beach walk.
Walked for about 2 hours - lots of cyclists.

Day in the park.

Lots of great trails in this whole system.

Mainly a nice boardwalk stroll. The East end of the city is a slower pace which can be great.

Amazing park!

Great for a fall hike to see some spectacular colours. The paved trails are good for all ability types. The wooded trails and neighbouring abandoned railway, quite beautiful but slightly more challenging, link up to the Evergreen Brickworks to enjoy a nice coffee and scenery before you make your way back. It's a regular favourite of ours.

High Park is a fantastic spot for an urban hike. Much less crowded during the week.

Went MTBing here. The green/easy trails are pretty, running along the river and the train tracks and were easy enough. The blue/intermediate trails were on the more advanced side of intermediate. I've rode on intermediate trails all over the country and I had trouble on parts of it and had to walk my bike. Lots of steep inclines and downhills. Overall very pretty and lots of fun but if you are still getting your feet wet then stick to the green/easy trails.

Terrible access from Leslie and Steeles. Nice part of the trail is near the Don Mills entrance. Don Mills area has nice parks and a wide paved path - good for young kids. Trail follows a drainage ditch not a river. Disappointed.

Not the longest trails. But it's a beautiful park with lots of great spots to relax. If you're looking for a hiking spot close to the city, this is the one.

It is a short trail. 30-40 minutes return trip. But it is a very nice trail. Easy, quiet and nature.

Very lovely lakeside walk with a nice view of the downtown city skyline. Great for biking, rollerblading, dog walking, and bird watching.
