Very pretty and you can follow it down to Brickworks!

I think this is probably the best walk/cycle trail in the city. The views are spectacular and they vary the further you go. You eventually end up at the Lake. A small company called Toronto Adventures even does kayak+canoe along the humber. That’s located under the subway station on the trail. Overall great area.

There are some trails here for walking but it’s mostly a paved road. It’s kind of boring as a walk (trail is closed right now due to debris) but it’s a really nice short bike ride out to the lighthouse. Some great views. This is all in full sun so dress appropriately and bring sunscreen.

Very nice and smooth trail... a lot of bugs though in a humid weather..

So nicely maintained and gorgeous to walk along! Just starting out!!

Plenty of free parking. Great views of the City especially walking back. Trails run parallel to the shoreline- but bikes must stay off. No rest stops, picnic area etc. However portable potty’s along the route. Pets not allowed. Hard to believe a park like this so close to a
major city. Great for cycling or hiking.

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.

A long walk, flat and concrete, nice views though. Very hot on a hot day, no shade.

I love this trail. There is ample parking and a few porta potties along the route.
The trail is flat and well maintained. If you are nervous about walking alone in the woods...this trail is for you. It’s clear and there are many friendly hikers around. This doesn’t mean that you won’t see any wildlife. There are many birds including owls, coyote scat, and snakes in summer. A lovely urban-type hike.

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

Beautiful walking trail in the winter with spots to stop off and watch birds.

Good for rollerblading

The trail map shown here is not accurate for the stretch between Bloor St and Dundas St. There is no access (at least not visible) around the creek and the trail map would actually indicate walking on the private golf course, which we did not see as possible. The stretch fro the West Mall to the Queensway is not along the creek at all.

very good trail.

It's more about walking than hiking and can be busy on the weekend. Paved path. If you go at the right time in the Fall, you see the fish swimming upstream.

I see some lovely photos of this trail - can someone tell me where along the trail I can find these unpaved areas? I want to avoid the paved paths and urban parks...

It's nice but it's not a hike. It's a crowded walk on a paved road. Lots of cyclists on the same path and you have to move out of the way often.

Very pleasant urban walk

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

great escape from the city, with fantastic views. It's not only open on weekends as someone said in another review. It's just only open from 4pm to 9pm Mon to Fri.

Not really a hike, more of a walk , but definitely worth it and beautiful. Took us 2.5 hours to do the whole thing. Saw lots of wildlife like snakes and muskrats and tons of birds and wild flowers as well. Great views of the city too!

Best sunset view along with city landscape

Very good afternoon biking from lakeshore to a little further north after the golf,a few steep passages that can be overcome all the same.Pretty quiet at that period of year.

Did my first trail today, loved it but not that good on the hills. Super happy

Always a nice walk. Easy 100%. All paved trails, nice scenery walking along the river. Heavily trafficked (people, dogs and bikes). I find south of Dundas busier than north (to Eglinton) but it's all pretty busy. Dog owners beware, the 'off leash' city enforcement officers frequent this park often and DO regularly give tickets to people walking/biking with dogs off-leash.

Bugs, and the area was flooded with water when you reach the higher bridge.

Don Valley trails, get's a bit more open and less green as you continue towards the water. Good for long runs.
