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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Was in construction.

Lovely trail. I like how it varies from old forest to fields with flowers, flats to hills. I wasn’t expecting to hike up the old ski hill but loved doing it! I hiked back along the river and a good part of that trail is sort of falling in to the river. Signs said that part was closed for regeneration.

One is the best in Ontario

Mostly flat trails. We took the Moore Ave. trailhead entrance w/c is a bit hidden. Parking is just along the street, in front of the cemetery or one of the residential roads. It's nice that it connects to the Evergreen Brickworks. This will be a nice way to go on the Saturday Farmer's market in the morning when parking is packed :)

Solid 5+ Km'er
In one ear and out the other

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.

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.
