When you're look g to walk off an afternoon lunch or just get out for a run, Burlington Waterfront Trail is a great option. Lots of families use this trail. Some cyclists and a fair amount of rollerbladers. The trail is well kept and stretches on for miles.

We go almost every weekend for a beautiful walk. Such a nice stretch to Stoney Creek. Beautiful view of lake Ontario and beautiful mature trees.

Find that on the weekend in the summer this is a well subscribed place. It is a good place for a run as the views are varied and there are others around to help motivate.

An amazing place to check out for all ages. Nice place to take a walk and it boasts one of the better waterfronts around. Great trail to experience as it is fairly long and the boardwalk is also a nice view of Lake Ontario.

The Burlington waterfront trail is the best part of Burlington We live in Burlington and spend a lot of time down by the lake in the summer. The trail goes from the downtown core all the way to Stoney creek so it is a perfect bike trail. The trail is right among the water meandering along beach views for miles... More
