This kinda trail makes you think how many bodies are in and or around the creek. PROCEED WITH CAUTION!!!

We pulled up and there was a guy in a mask standing on the bridge at the entrance. We decided to park and start at the other end of the parking lot to avoid him. Under the next bridge was a needle drop. Based on the pictures I was expecting more trees and greenery but the trail was paved and beside a field and park rather than in a wooded area. Not at all what I was expecting.

Used to be a fun spot to ride bikes and explore the creek back in the early 90’s, now the woods are full of dangerous drug addicts and homeless people. These trails used to be maintained, grass cut, tree debris picked up. Now it’s overgrown, full of garbage and used needles. Only the brave or addicted wander these trails now.

Awesome little trail in the middle of Oshawa. Despite Oshawa’s reputation there are some beautiful pockets of nature to enjoy.

This trail is great for beginners or those with injuries. It was a little concerning to see a needle deposit bin at the start of the trail... There were a few tents most likely inhabited with homeless people, and a lot of garbage laying around. We saw a few people drinking alcohol on the sides of the trail, they kept to themselves thankfully. You will see quite a few people on motorized scooters but they are respectful of trail etiquette. We saw very little wildlife. (a few squirrels and ducks) Overall it's a decent trail if you aren't looking for a challenge

Nice trail. Good for a lil jog and to take pics in the morning. I went during a week day about 8 am. Sketchy characters and homeless in couple parts of the trail. Reassuring to see other runners and walkers on the trail considering I’m from out of province. Goes through couple schools as well.

Nice walk or bike ride to Lake Ontario. You can go to Lakeview Park or Pumphouse Marsh Wildlife Reserve at the south end of the trail or the Oshawa Botanical Gardens at the north end.
