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
