It was 21 degrees in November. It made perfect sense for me to go for a bike ride to explore new territory. I started at the Corktown Common trailhead of the Martin Goodman Waterfront Trail and headed East to Sheldon Lookout, 12 km so far. Heading to the bottom of the lookout, I entered the Humber River trail, which is a nice and easy paved, multi-use trail that meanders along the Humber River. As I headed North, I was amazed how developed the trail was, connecting many parks and neighbourhoods together. The ride from the Southern trailhead at Sheldon Lookout to the Northern trailhead at Steeles Ave W and Islington Ave is 25km one way. The Humber River trail was paved the entire length and I only had to ride on the road for a couple minutes total at Stephen Dr in the very beginning and Weston Rd near the end. As I returned back South towards Lake Ontario in the afternoon, there were many others cycling, running, rollerblading, and walking. It was great to see! Once at Lake Ontario, I turned east and crossed over the Humber Bay to continue my journey on the Martin Goodman Waterfront Trail. At this point I was

Fantastic trail. Started all the way from James Garden and worked south. Very crowded, but it is the long weekend. When you get to Humber, the walk along the river is beautiful. Also opportunities to go off pavement and go in the woods. I recommend going off the pavement and there are many many ways to get to the water shore and watch the salmon jump!

Great Trail just on the outskirts of the city. Usually pretty packed with people, but the further you get to the moody area, the less people there are.

Its more an urban walking path than a hiking trail but still a pleasant walk. The salmon were migrating upstream to spawn which was cool. Lots ofdogs.
