This is a favourite trail for walking, roller blading and biking along the shores of Lake Ontario. Even more so since the path was completely paved several years ago. When biking, you can also exit at the south end and go for a nice ride...More

The trail is nice and wide and paved with a great view of the harbor and good for a leisurely bike ride or walk with nice restaurants at either end.

Nice walking paths and benches to sit and enjoy the views. It is also a nice drive along the waterfront.

We saw this beach during our car ride from Toronto to Niagara. The beach looked vast, fresh and people can walk for a long time. It has car parking space.

Best part of the city, one of the best parts of living in Burlington. Year round accessibility, the trail is a great place to get your nature on, good for walking, running or just hanging out away from the hustle and bustle.
