Description
Waypoints (0)

The trail was established to connect off-road paved bicycle trails that lead to the northern city limits and southward to downtown and Lake Ontario. The current southern end is officially a dead end with a plan to connect east across the CP tracks to ET Seton Park. An unofficial path has been created near the south end going west through private property (OTT Financial) to the east side of Leslie Street north of the firehall south of the OTT building. Please ride or walk with special care and consideration on private property and yield to riders going in the opposite direction on the very narrow connector. The entire trail is not maintained in winter and has no lighting. It is a former railway route (Canadian Northern, then CN, from about 1910) that was called the Leaside Spur as it connected to a rail yard in Leaside via the CP mainline at is southern end. The historic rail yard's engine repair building is now restored as a Longo's supermarket on Laird Drive.

Great running trail, it's about 8km round-trip between York mills and Eglinton. I trained for 2019 waterfront marathon on this trail and finally I finished in 3 hours and 29 minutes.

When I parked at the Longos I had no idea how to get to the trail, so I ended up walking a bit along York Mills before I found the trail. I included a photo of the quickest way by going underneath the bridge. Also, if you park at 120 Bond park it’s a lot more accessible to the trail.

Wheelchair walk- We parked at Bond park and took the trail south and back. We were pushing a wheelchair and it was a very smooth ride. Lots of bikes and squirrels on the pathway. Very pleasant stroll.

We parked at the longos shopping plaza. Go under the bridge and after like 10 mins, it’s shady the rest of the trail. Such a peaceful, flat and paved path. Lots of people walking and bikers. Highly recommend!

Road bikingBugs

I found this new trail after getting bubble tea at Midland and Finch on my way to downtown. The trails are smooth and paved. There is good signage and the trail is well connected to major intersections like Leslie St to allow you to travel through the trail to reach many destination. There are no lights however, so bring your own headlight if you travel in the dark. I would go back to this trail to explore again.

Love this trail its the right mix of woods and urban. The trail is well kept and has a number of side trails which go off into parks. Park at Longo's Parking Lot at Leslie walk under the bridge from the parking lot an begin your adventure.

Road biking

This trail is good just because you don't have to Ride or walk on the road. once you get to Lawrence you can go over to Edward Gardens and continue on towards the Don River trail and then all the way DT. The Leaside spur trail is good way to get to other trails but it's short, good for a walk or jog.

Well used trail and not that tranquil - if you want a quieter trail, cross Leslie and head to Wilket Creek. Be aware that the spur south of Lawrence has a sign that reads "No Exit South of Overland". This is incorrect. They have now put a formal exit at the end of the trail running west to Leslie past the office buildings. Due to this sign however, this tends to be a more quiet part of the trail, as many people turn around and walk back north at this point.
