Excellent views. We went off trail and climbed up the dirt side of the bluffs. Seems like people have done it before since there was a little bit of a pathway. Very steep. Luckily we went after it had rained so there was good traction. Cute little streams and wildlife. We didn’t find the top of the bluffs but it was a fun experience overall!

Yes very good trail, I like to dump in the bushes to leave my mark. No one will know it is me but it’s nice to know I left something to commemorate my little hike :) life’s good. Will visit again

Wonderful view! Late October weather was cold and windy, but the view was beautiful. The fall foliage season brought so much colour to the trees.

Incredible view and landscape! You can climb over the fence and look over but be extremely cautious! Police may come and in that case just climb back over the fence and walk away and don't look back.

You can go on top of the cliff it’s risky but view is worth it !

Easy walk. Some of it is nice but a lot is along the road.

I've always come here for the beautiful beach and cliffs. In the summer it can get a bit crowded but they provide a place to play volleyball. One of the beaches that allows people to have bonfires right at the beach. There is also a marina and places to set-up bbq and picnics. Also have multiple trails that can be challenging.

Nice walk. Most of the way is paved, gravel, sand beach, or wide dirt paths. There is very little elevation change. None the less it is a lovely walk along the beach. I'm not sure why it is listed as moderate. Maybe it is moderate if you try to climb up or down the bluffs (which you really shouldn't do as the sand is very unstable).

Short and sweet. If you swim hang out by the beach after

Great cliffs

I imagined this as a hike up a mountain, but there is really no elevation and more of a beach/sidewalk trail. We were unsure about half-way through about expectations, so we asked the beach lifeguard, and he said there is no mountain climb/look-out. Very easy walk with beach access, but nothing fancy.

Great hiking spot and an amazing view up top!!! Definitely worth the trek up the mountain!!!

It is very pretty at the beach and by the sandy cliffs but this definitely easier, shorter, and less exciting than I was expecting. It was more a stroll on a beach than a hike. There wasn't any elevation at all really.

One of the more visibly interesting natural spaces in the Toronto area. High cliffs and nice beaches.

Nice park and marina area with steep cliff views.

very crowded

The view from the top is very nice but didn't love this for hiking. More of a lookout and surrounded by development and houses.

excellent park!!

Great trail. Top of the cliff gives the best scenery in my opinion! Would do it again.
