A pretty chill trail. Paved and wooden around the brickworks. Gravel on Moore ravine.

All OK. Heading S from cemetery trail is well made but not exactly as shown on Alltrails. I took alternate route thru Brickworks and onto Whitehall Rd.

Great trail to feel in touch with nature, see some cool bridges and artwork, just enough inclines to break a nice sweat without having to take a break, not overly busy on a Friday afternoon in August. I look forward to completing the whole loop on my next visit

A beautiful trail tucked away in the city. North area was blocked off due to construction and the cemetery hours (closed until 5-5:30 during the weekday) so we had to figure out how to get back on the trail via streets to complete the loop. Lots of shade and trees, with the sound of running water, and not too busy during the weekday- a great trail for walking and biking!

Part off the trail goes through cemetery, it should have been mentioned in the trail description

If you'd like to do the entire loop you'll need to do some adjustments - the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery is closed and there is a construction going on between Cats Eye Bridge and Moore Ave, trail is inaccessible there.

today was very sunny so lots of the snow was melting. very muddy. heavy traffic with families. trade offs to consider since this is still in the city. nice big trees tho. the streams also had some interesting aspects.

Great path, but there were construction at different points that forced diversion. Apparently the construction is only active during the weekdays. Otherwise, very pleasant!

There are numerous portions of this trail that are very beautiful. One portion crossed through a cemetery so be respectful. There were a lot of people utilizing this trail for bike rides, dog walking, and just exploring. One area near the Moore ravine smelt of sewage but it wasn’t for a long stretch. Overall good hike even in the rain

Great city hike, when you're in the ravine it feels like you're somewhere far from (north of Caledon). Some really beautiful views. Elevation doesn't change much if you stay on main path, excepting a few sections.

This is really a nice trail to explore .Though it's a bit over crowded but the path is great for runners .This trail made me feel so close to nature.

This trail is nice but very populated. There were only a few short times where I felt like I had the trail to myself

Decent, easy to follow city trail. Once you are in the ravine Toronto almost disappears and it feels like you aren’t in the city. A few small sections would not be suitable for strollers but otherwise an easy trail.

It’s a good trail but I didn’t like the very long walk through the cemetery, twice. Other than that it was nice

started at brickworks and headed up to mount pleasant where path is paved and flat (i.e. many families and strollers). coming back down through balfour park is not stroller friendly at all for about 1km, then there is a split, where a paved trail can be rejoined.

First to Review

This is a perfect getaway close to downtown, both for walking and jogging, and with a bit of detour also for biking.
