It's a beautiful trail along Ontario Lake bank. Cycling trail is very easy itself, however very crowded with bikes, joggers and skaters. Great idea to admire Ontario Lake during a sunny day :) must see for those who stay in Toronto longer than couple days. Don't miss it.

My boyfriend and I love to bike along the waterfront trail. It is nicely paved and there is great scenery along the lake. Can't wait for it to warm up a bit so we can start biking along here again!

Went running the other day and loved it. I was on my way to Tommy Thompson Park and discover the Trail by accident and just loved running in the woods on fresh snowpack.

Went to the Toronto Waterfront Trail (west) on Sunday. The place all along the trail was full of people with family, friends and pets. Just for a stroll or for a time pass this place is great. It is a lovely view as on one side you find Etobicoke (on the right hand) and you see on the other side... More

For those who enjoy a good walk / hike / bike ride, then this one is for you. The Waterfront Trail runs along the North shore of Canada's Lake Ontario, with a great deal to see along the way.

We did this drive on our motorcycle several years ago. Very scenic and enjoyable. Do it on a sunny day. Lots of places to stop and picnic.

We often stay at the Westin Harbour Castle and take the waterfront trail for a great, relaxing stroll. In the early evening, it is so relaxing to just sit on the dockside chairs and stare out at the boats and birds on the water. It's a real beauty!

Thank Lynne K
