Such a nice trial to go for a bike ride on a nice day. Get to see the pretty river beside and many hidden trail exercise posts. Only bad thing is graffiti under the bridges. Other than that it’s very nice.

Spent my summer 2018 visiting there frequently. Biking, taking my dog on a walk. View from the Dam top was amazing.

This is my go to trail, being minutes from my home. Ideal for walking, biking and inline skating in some areas. I've spotted many deer, hurons, egrets, cormorants, coyotes, rabbits, otters, beavers snapping turtles, toads and snakes over the years. Even in the winter, deer like to come out of the woods, so always have your camera ready. Photo opps galore.

I'm lucky that this is my everyday commute. Great for walking, biking and birdwatching.

Nice paved trail. A little busy with bikers but they all seem to have bells so all was good. It was a hot summer day and there is not much shade. As I had my dogs we took a few trips down to the river to cool off. But I wasn’t able to go as far as I wanted. Will come back in the cooler weather for sure.

It was our first trail in Toronto and we were pretty impressed. it's a long trail and lots of greenery and open spaces. perfect for cyclists and running. we enjoyed a long walk and had a picnic as well. the humber river runs by the trail and makes for some good pictures.

didn't realize how close I live to this trail and I really enjoy walking it. I think writing the Kms on the pavement is smart. I even had a chance to sit by the river and just enjoy a glorious sunny day in the city.

It's so long that you can literally find anything you're looking for. It's not so crowded so that's really nice. You go on the paved trail but you can explore all the mini trails encompassed within the path! Wildlife sighting is incredible here. Would come back to finish the rest of the trail!

I love this quaint and beautiful park. Lots of birds hang out in this park with a pretty river. Easy walk or run through the trail. Great to take your dog for walks.

Very easy walk, with many deer sightings in the early mornings. Plenty of birds, rabbits, and signs of beaver everywhere. Some noise from nearby highways, but for a city trail, the wildlife is impressive.

Lovely fall walking, benches along the way to stop for a break.
