As a trail, it is really nice considering it is in an urban area. The trail is flat, gravel, with moderate ups and downs. Between Bathurst and Yonge it is open area whereas mostly shaded between Yonge and Bayview. There are parkings on each of the three major crossing roads.
The greatest problem is lack of any facilities along the trail, including in the parkings. At least bring a portable toilet in each parking, if not a real bathroom with running water.
Once you are aware of the facility issue and prepare in advance, it is lovely up-to-16 km trail, and will visit it again, for sure.

Beautiful trail, but it deserves a 4 star because we followed the lake margin trail, otherwise (if we'd followed the main trail) it would be a 3...

Great trail for geocaching. Too bad there's some littering along the trail trail, but otherwise a beautiful lake.
