Wilket Creek is currently undergoing maintenance but don't let that stop you. If you enter from the south end by Sunnybrook, be aware the trail entrance is poorly marked. There is a sign post by the washrooms but it says Thomas Bata Trail - that is actually the first few yards of Wilket Creek. Only a short way in you'll find the entrance barred for construction, but stick to the left side dirt trail. It will lead you on a parallel path up to the Sunnybrook soccer pitches (be aware this part is moderate intensity and not suitable for those with very young children). Watch out for a sharp turn to your right at the soccer pitches which will take you out on to a suburban side street which you must follow north for all of about 200 yards before a small pathway beside house # 32 plunges you back into Wilket Creek, where you can continue north to Edwards Gardens and the TBG

Really nice scenic trail, I went mid week on a damp overcast day, there wasn't allot of traffic but I would imagine it will be packed in the summer when the foliage is in full bloom. There were a couple of washrooms throughout the trail which was nice. The main trail is paved and is fairly level but there is a fairly steep incline in and out of the park, there is paved ramp with stairs in some part but is steep to get down. I think there may have been another ramp down that was less incline that started at the same part and entered the trail further down. I really enjoyed this hike unfortunately the trail was closed for maintenance half way down to Eglington, there was a ramp to get off the trail, so I think you could have went up to the street and re-entered further down the trail
