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

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!

Great trail. Only rode once but very well maintained

always a good place to visit. so relaxing to cirt life. trails easy.
out geocaching with group

Nice little walk, especially the harder to find off-park trail through the woods.

More of biking trail than hiking but it was okay.

it's a nice short walk and passes by a playground.

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

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

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

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.

Went for an afternoon hike. It was with lots of up hills, downhills. Some part of the trail goes by the river. There was lots of wild life and different type of wild flowers. It was overall a good hike. Definitely recommend and will do it again.

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

The first km of this trail was a trail, dirt/ground. The next km was a bike path, so asphalt. I only went 2km and then turned back (short evening walk). The scenery was very nice, overlooking the lake, passing by a beach. I just wish that it had been all trail.
