Description
Waypoints (0)
Hamilton Waterfront Trail provides a wide paved surface for walkers, runners, and cyclists alike. There are also other points of interest close by for additional activities - parks, playgrounds, boats, and picnic areas. Accessibility: There is a large paved parking lot at the west end of the trail, but it is unclear if there are any designated accessible parking spaces or striped access aisles there. The trail surface is paved asphalt and typically between 2 and 3 meters wide. The grade is mostly gentle (all 5% or less) so most wheelchair and stroller users will likely be able to traverse the trail.

Road bikingBugsGreat!No shade

Very smooth and flat (constant peddling but it wasn’t strenuous). I ended up taking this trail all the way to the lift bridge to Burlington and back. Very scenic and wide paths to allow space for everyone. May flies were out and about!!

Fractured my ankle, so I could only go with my knee scooter on trails that were fully paved. This was great.

HikingGreat!

Wonderful trail with lots of interest-parks, playgrounds, bird life, boats and picnicking areas. I’ll be back to do the Cootes Paradise section another day.

Great for rollerblading, cycling, or walking. Right by Lake Ontario. Good view of residential back yards. 8km one way. Goes to Burlington bridge and into Burlington.

Had a great Sunday stroll here. The trail is paved with cement but one can walk along side the beach, too. The trail is for walking, riding a bike or roller skating.
