good trail as fun for biking

Combination of dirt and paved paths, lovely scenery. A fantastic way to spend a few hours in nature without having to drive outside of the city! Easily accessible via transit which is another plus.

What a hidden gem, feels like a private oasis, lush and green even on the hottest of days. Beautiful boardwalk, stairs and a running creek with lots of plants and birds to keep one looking up and down.

Nice paved trail. A little busy with bikers but they all seem to have bells so all was good. It was a hot summer day and there is not much shade. As I had my dogs we took a few trips down to the river to cool off. But I wasn’t able to go as far as I wanted. Will come back in the cooler weather for sure.

Great run. Nice scenery and good hills for running

Nice scenic trail along the river. No signs around. Got lost a few times.

Nice scenic route - ends at mount pleasant cemetery which is also a great place to run.

Very nice trail. Medium difficulty, paved and easy to follow. It goes cloes to an abandoned railway and offers great view over the city. I ended up in an old factory and clay quarry. A must do to my opinion.

It was our first trail in Toronto and we were pretty impressed. it's a long trail and lots of greenery and open spaces. perfect for cyclists and running. we enjoyed a long walk and had a picnic as well. the humber river runs by the trail and makes for some good pictures.

excellent trails!
though the invasive species are taking a wicked hold down there...

We loved it. A nice family walk took us 3 hrs. we did all the paths. And took a lot of great pic.

We got a bit hot but there were a couple spot with a nice cool breeze. And nice people. Very clean.

Just beautiful

Well used trail and not that tranquil - if you want a quieter trail, cross Leslie and head to Wilket Creek.
Be aware that the spur south of Lawrence has a sign that reads "No Exit South of Overland". This is incorrect. They have now put a formal exit at the end of the trail running west to Leslie past the office buildings. Due to this sign however, this tends to be a more quiet part of the trail, as many people turn around and walk back north at this point.

Wilket Creek is currently undergoing maintenance but don't let that stop you. If you enter from the south end by Sunnybrook, be aware the trail entrance is poorly marked. There is a sign post by the washrooms but it says Thomas Bata Trail - that is actually the first few yards of Wilket Creek. Only a short way in you'll find the entrance barred for construction, but stick to the left side dirt trail. It will lead you on a parallel path up to the Sunnybrook soccer pitches (be aware this part is moderate intensity and not suitable for those with very young children). Watch out for a sharp turn to your right at the soccer pitches which will take you out on to a suburban side street which you must follow north for all of about 200 yards before a small pathway beside house # 32 plunges you back into Wilket Creek, where you can continue north to Edwards Gardens and the TBG

This is a fantastic urban hike in North America's largest maintained Victorian home enclave. All the cottages and homes are meticulously maintained and many have lovely gardens. The section through Riverdale Farm is a welcome diversion if you have kids and they'll love looking at the sheep, horses and cows. Parliament Street offers places to grab food and drink after your walk. If you opt to duck down any of the tiny alleyways off the suggested route, you'll invariably find some hidden architectural gem.

This trail is a true Toronto hidden gem. The trail follows a stream that is down a deep ravine which is sheltered from the nearby houses by a little wood consisting of many mature trees. The floor of the woods is covered in lush green plants. There were very few people on the trail when we went and even though the temperature was scorching outside the trees sheltered us from the heat early in the morning (10 am). Even though the trail is very short it is really an oasis in Toronto.

I've done this trail 3x and every time I've ended up somewhere completely different. Lots of forks and turns so it's easy to not follow the loop.
It's an excellent hike but if it wasn't for this app, we would have been totally lost. I need to work on my navigational skills!
I hiked this with a 3-year-old in a back carrier and it was fine (and I'm not that athletic or strong by any stretch).
Great trail for "real" hiking!

An easy and flat trail (read path) used by walkers, bikers and runners. Not exactly exciting but will get your run off the road.

Riding the trail from the north, the proper trail ends just east of Kennedy Road. Some work has begun on extending the trail and some of it is marginally rideable. However, just before Tomken Rd, the trail is impassable. It would be nice to have some signage to indicate when the trail is expected to be completed.

Usually do this every September for the Terry Fox 10KM event.

Its a long stroll only but very nice if you like the beach.

A paved trail that takes you through wooded areas. Spent only an hour walking and came across a couple deer, a beaver, many bunnies and the tiniest squirrel I have ever seen (no, not a chipmunk). Several benches along the trail to take scenic breaks. There are fire pits and BBQs as well as a splash pad and jungle gym near the main parking lot. I have lived very close to this trail for 2 years and had no idea this place was here until the app pointed it out.

Bottom half from East Don to Cummer is paved and more well travelled. North end from Cummer to Finch is woodland path and quieter.

geocaching the island today. happy to see a recovery after flooding last year.
