Length – 9 km (one way)
97% park path
3% road, detours
Elevation – Mostly level, with small, rolling hills on the peninsula.
Terrain – A wide asphalt path with a centre line, some sand blown in from beach and gravel spots.
Skill – Easy. Great for cruising.
Traffic – It can get busy, especially around the above ground pool at Woodbine Ave. Watch out for dogs, kids, and meandering tourists that stray onto the bike path—and give people rollerblading lots of space, too!
Maps – Map boards can be found on the trail; follow the blue-green centre line.
Facilities – There are washrooms at four change stations, as well as fast food and rain shelters; limited parking.
Highlights – Take in the beach, lake, city skyline, and parks. Tour Queen St., and see the Leuty Lifeguard Station, RC Harris Water Treatment Plant.
Phone – 311
Local Clubs – Toronto Bike Network
Access – You can cycle in along the Martin Goodman Trail. Parking is a challenge in this area, especially during summer weekends, but try the Woodbine Park parking lot. If you can cycle there, then all the better.
