A long walk, flat and concrete, nice views though. Very hot on a hot day, no shade.

I love this trail. There is ample parking and a few porta potties along the route.
The trail is flat and well maintained. If you are nervous about walking alone in the woods...this trail is for you. It’s clear and there are many friendly hikers around. This doesn’t mean that you won’t see any wildlife. There are many birds including owls, coyote scat, and snakes in summer. A lovely urban-type hike.

great escape from the city, with fantastic views. It's not only open on weekends as someone said in another review. It's just only open from 4pm to 9pm Mon to Fri.

Not really a hike, more of a walk , but definitely worth it and beautiful. Took us 2.5 hours to do the whole thing. Saw lots of wildlife like snakes and muskrats and tons of birds and wild flowers as well. Great views of the city too!

Best sunset view along with city landscape

I love the Leslie Spit, whether for running or walking or finding unexpected nature in the heart of the city. The Leslie Spit is a landscape of contrasts, nature digging it's way out of industrial cast offs.

Definitely a hidden (in plain sight) gem.

It's a pretty nice trail for cycling, but not so much for walking. I like it because it's easily accessible from downtown Toronto but still not too overrun. It's also a good place for bird watching, since Leslie Street Spit is actually a birds sanctuary.

More or less walking a road. Beautiful views of the city. Open only on weekends.
