nice trail but maintenance needed urgently . Some areas nature took trail out completely.

The lookout trail is well worth the effort to climb up!

Beautiful scenery

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.

Reminded me of a few greats trails in Victoria BC

Just beautiful

Good trail overall. During the week it’s very quiet - you might see one other person. Trail is easy to follow and there’s plenty of tree cover for hot days. There is some overgrowth that you have to duck under/around mid-trail but nothing crazy (I do it with a baby carrier on). Nice views, peaceful setting, easy hike.

Nice, not too difficult hike. Party of three inexperienced hikers and we all were fine, save for one of us having trouble with some stairs only once.
There's a great overlook with a wonderful view, and a beautiful lake at one point, would have loved to take a dip but not sure if that's allowed!
Overall a good time, the hardest part is literally just a tall staircase, newcomers should be fine!

This is a great place for a day trip from Toronto. Some beautiful look-outs and nice lake spots to stop for lunch!

Coming from California, I wasn't sure what to expect at this park including trail difficulty, scenery, etc. But I was pleasantly surprised! I went yeaterday to avoid crowds & I literally had the entire forest to myself! It was incredibly peaceful to just hike with the sounds of birds chirping, leaves rustling & the wind blowing. My favourite trails were the McCarston, Overlook & obviously the stairs that led down into the rocky area. The trails were well marked, however at the junctions, it was very unclear to me which trails were which & where they led. I ended up hiking further than planned because I couldn't find the trail leading back to the main parking lot/entrance. Bugs were barely out yesterday, but I was prepared with bug repellent. In my opinion, these trails are good if you're for a short hike/casual stroll. It's not somewhere I'd go back to. Parking is not free...I paid $7.50 for 4 hours. And they do check...I saw a parks attendant checking each car & ticketing. Overall, it was a great experience!!

Was nice, not crowded at all. There is a fee and honour system.

nice well maintained trail. we'll have to come back in the spring as there wasn't much water flowing over the falls. The interesting stone structure is the homestead of Belva Lockwood, first woman to practice law before the Supreme court and the first woman to run for president!

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.

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.

A disappointment for us. The trails are in good condition but the scenery was bland. After enjoying trails around Uxbridge and Stouffville this Spring we were expecting more. The drive there was very nice and salvaged the trip.

Beautiful Trail nice to Walk

A good number of trails but also lots of hills. Don’t miss the lookout (on the lookout side trail) - you can see all the way to Toronto on a clear day.

didn't really get to use the trail.just reviewing for your info..its closed at the 401 underpass..
Looked like a nice paved path in that area though..I rode from north of 401 up to Courtney Park..

amazing gem tucked in the west. start from Lake Ontario and head north. surprisingly technical MB trail. you would not want to go in (recent) rain as you’d definitely get stuck in certain areas. Must have spare tire kit (or kevlar protected tires) as the trail gets gnarly especially through the overpass sections -broken glass everywhere.
try to speed your way thru the golf course. players and staff get UPPITY AF if they see you. (Bonus: reenact a “Falling Down” golf course scene if possible)
Overall amazing trail. will try to make it all the way to Brampton next run.

We went earlier last week & had a blast. Only thing is, a lot of people don’t listen to the rules when signs say keep dogs on leash. Besides that smooth sailing and a lot of fun & sun ☺️

A really nice easy hike, lots of scenery. There are two sets of falls, upper and lower, if you want a more intense hike, I suggest working your way down to the bottom of the upper falls, no trail and lots of rock to climb over but the view is stunning once you reach the bottom of the falls! There is an old historic village with lots of really old buildings (late 1700,s early 1800’s)

So lovely. Many hidden gems along the water!

Good trail markings. There were some trails that were closed for rehabilitation. Good thing there are plenty of side trails to use to complete the loop. For free parking, go through 2nd Road and park on the street.

You can check my recording for the access point as well as how to go around the closed trail on the current map.

Great place has a little of everything. stairs if you prefer or a gradual run up and around. very nice. kinda busy but the views make it worth while. Parking fees apply.

Be warned though the trail turns into a golf course. at Bloor St and Markland Woods and it remains a golf course until Burnhamthorpe Road (20 minute walk between the two) During off season you can walk through the course, but you have to be careful of Etobicoke Creek it floods in the spring and long heavy rain falls and it very very dangerous. Growing up in the area multiple people have died when it floods out.

didn't realize how close I live to this trail and I really enjoy walking it. I think writing the Kms on the pavement is smart. I even had a chance to sit by the river and just enjoy a glorious sunny day in the city.

Never had a problem with people on this trail!! Bike road through the forest .. there is 100 little trails offside the path ! Beautiful place

Started at west entrance of east point park for an easy quick walk in small forest and along the lakeshore. Can picnic. Soft mulch.
