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.

Your basic walking trail with beyond basic views of Lake Ontario and its spectacular range of waterfowl. In the Spring, nesting is everywhere. Babies are soon to follow. Perfect for the camera enthusiast.

Beautiful trail in the summer. Paved, easy bike ride with multiple parking places along the way. Only pain is getting over the bridge but still not horrible. Shared pathway so important to be careful but for an easy day ride/walk, nice place to go.

There is lots of parking if you follow Lakeshore toward Hamilton after going through the downtown area. It is free all day, every day. It is very full on weekends, but as I mentioned in my review, the police don't seem to... More
