This route is a paddling trip from Eldorado Park to the mouth of the Credit River at Port Credit. Even though it goes through Toronto, it still feels somewhat like you are you in the country with a lot of green around it.  However, you are reminded you are in the city as you go under many bridges – 4 highways in total, and there are large airplanes constantly above you from Toronto International Airport.  There are two portages the whole trip – one at at Streetsville Weir and at Streetsville Park.  Comparing this to nearby Bronte Creek, it is a little less hardcore, but on the other hand it doesn’t have many low water spots where you can get beached, if you pick some good lines.  And there weren’t all that many sweepers, or strainers especially, but you do have to pay attention.  The ‘rock ramp’ in Missisauga golf club is pretty cool, there’s a sign with very small writing before it to tell you to go down the middle.
