Trail was beautiful but due to closures I got turned around and lost. I will attempt to do this one again. That’s why the lower rating. Was not easy to follow.

This section behind East Point Park west to Manse road, is not part of the trail and you have to walk on road for about 1km. Walking along the lake you can't get through.

Parts of this trail are very interesting but it is almost all paved and there is too much time walking on roadways. The trail was closed in a couple places forcing us back onto roads. Probably a good route to bike.

A paved trail that takes you through wooded areas. Spent only an hour walking and came across a couple deer, a beaver, many bunnies and the tiniest squirrel I have ever seen (no, not a chipmunk). Several benches along the trail to take scenic breaks. There are fire pits and BBQs as well as a splash pad and jungle gym near the main parking lot. I have lived very close to this trail for 2 years and had no idea this place was here until the app pointed it out.

Started at west entrance of east point park for an easy quick walk in small forest and along the lakeshore. Can picnic. Soft mulch.

A beautiful, easy trail that traverses beautiful wooded area on easy paved paths where you wouldn't even know you're in the city. Then suddenly the lake appears in front of view - a beautiful vista. A ride along the lakeshore is lovely as well. We did about 9 km round trip starting from the Highland Creek Parking lot and rode east. Go for it!

Did about 1/2 of this trail for a quick walk yesterday. An amazing wilderness in the city. On the way back we sung by and skirted the tennis courts they have built on the U of T campus for the PanAm games. Amazing thick of growth forest and wetlands on one side, Highland Creek on the other - it's a great choice for a trail without leaving the city. Parking is right along Old Kingston Road - you can't miss it.
