Nice trail. I used my road bike today. it was a bad idea. A mountain bike will be perfect.

lovely. simple. easy to walk and nagaviate.

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.

No one was there on a weekday. Easy, lovely trail.

full of ants everywhere

Great series of paths... mostly paved but some more rugged if you choose. Runs along the river and once you get a little bit further from roads, very peaceful. Easy walk, not many uphill sections. Will be back.

Nice scenery, couple of river crossings and occasional elevation if you wander off main paths. Mosquito-free unless you take side paths and then heavy. Some ambient traffic noise, but great getaway close to Toronto.

love it so far

Checkout wild raspberries and elderberries on the sides. Watch for small snakes. I saw one by the little water body.

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.

Nice trail for MTB

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

I absolutely love this trail ! It has tons of shade as the trees loop together form the top and keeps it nice and cool in the summer . It’s both baby and dog friendly ! Our family loves it !

Though I no longer live in King City, I still take the 40 minute drive to visit this trail seasonally. Having come here since I was a kid (15+ years), I've witnessed this trail change a lot over the years. The main integral characteristic of this trail is that the Humber River cuts through its first half (if starting from Keele Street, which is absolutely recommended). You'll come across the river within the first couple of minutes walking into the trail which then runs adjacent to the trail (though it's hard to see now due to untamed overgrowth). Once the river trails off 1/3 of your way in off Norman Drive, there's a lot of different features that can be seen as you travel deeper into the trail which includes marshes, open grasslands, and a bizarre looking pine forest which you can do a loop around. The trail itself links a surprising number of King City residential areas which includes Kingscross Estates, McClure Drive, and Heritage Park. It should take about 1 hr to 1.5 hr to complete the entire thing, though travelling all the way to Kingscross Estates during the summertime should be proceeded with caution as there are TONS OF MOSQUITOES as you travel deeper into the forest.

Unfortunately, the trail is not like it used to be back in the late 90's and early 00's. For one, it used to take much longer, but due to the aforementioned overgrowth of plants, lots of smaller trails have been hidden or have completely disappeared in time. In addition, the overgrowth prevents anyone from seeing much wildlife anymore, which in the past, included beavers and foxes (a beaver dam used to be directly in front of the bridge overseeing the Humber River but it has completely vanished now. I also haven't even seen a fox since spring of 2010).

On the positives, this is a great trail for mountain biking and there are tons of branching paths so that you can decide how short or long your trip can be. It has maps, it has a few benches (though no garbage cans) and because it has so many different features, it's a neat little walk. I would recommend visiting in the fall when mosquitoes are few, and water levels are low.

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.

Well paved. Both foot and bicycle traffic. Some real elevation changes for beginners. Well kept and maintained with period stops for rest.

Beautiful trail!

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.

非常好,第一次尝试越野跑

Lots of Natural sceneries alongside of Humber river. they are well maintained. The trail is composed of high and low elevations which is intresting and makes your views wide open at some points. 3hrs hike in total if you make it a loop.

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

Love this trail. Markers are well displayed. But it’s also fun to “get lost” and discover hidden secrets. Always finding a new route on this trail!

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

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

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

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

Beautiful Trail nice to Walk

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

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
