I’ve walked here lots since I live in the area. The trails are relatively not busy when I went but it’s busy on other days. Don’t usually like the crowd at all, but a nice walk. But muddy.

Nice, easy trails with option to walk on paved or unpaved paths. Slightly busy, as expected, due to nice weather when I went at noon.

A beautiful trail within the city. I had been to High park many times before but following the trail made me discover new areas of the park. The hills make for a perfect workout, especially with a stroller!

A very nice easy trail for mountain biking. A little bit too busy on weekend, expect a lot of people walking in the path. the map might be a bit off since it was showing us to go on a dog off leash area which makes some dog owners unhappy so try to skip it if you are biking. Trail had some muddy section which is to be expected due to the rain from a day before otherwise it was well maintained. My wife and I had fun.

One of my favourite places growing up. Big enough to get lost inside the trails and being surrounded by nothing but trees. Different paths to search through and the legendary castle park playground . Also if you can find it there’s a hidden stunt bike area somewhere inside the woods

this Trail is beautiful during all season's. it is important to keep in mind that this is not a trail for an intense workout really does have something for everyone. there is a cheap and cheerful Cafe right in the heart of the trail, tennis courts, sprawling gardens, a beautiful River that connects to Lake Ontario, public pool and off leash dog park. During certain seasons you are bound to see people having their engagement photos taken due to the beautiful backdrops and scenery will see.

Nice if you get out early - sadly lots of dog owners with no respect for leash rules .. really frustrating to be chased and jumped on by dogs. Nice tho if you can’t get out of town to other trails

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

Awesome park right in the city. They offer different trails that span from easy to medium. If you're training for a run or an obstacle race this is a great place to train due to different terrain. They have a huge playground for kids, a garden for those who just wants to sit and relax, a free zoo where you can pet and feed llamas, and a restaurant right inside the park. This is the baby version of Central Park. A must visit.

High Park is a fantastic spot for an urban hike. Much less crowded during the week.

Not the longest trails. But it's a beautiful park with lots of great spots to relax. If you're looking for a hiking spot close to the city, this is the one.
