Notable Waypoints

The Beaches

  • Location:


The Beachesmarker community in eastern Toronto is an important location on the trail, being one of the only neighbourhoods in Torontomarker with residential homes next to the lakeshore. The Beach itself is a popular destination, hosting games of beach volleyball, and attracting many cyclists and rollerbladers. North of the waterfront are many small stores and restaurants along Queen Street and The Danforthmarker. From the Beaches, the trail runs west along the Toronto waterfront for its entire length, with only a few sections on city streets. Currently, there isn't any path running east along the waterfront from the Beaches.

Port Credit

  • Location:


Port Creditmarker straddles the Credit River with a mix of residential and commercial development along the trail. Most of the trail is separated from traffic with the exception of some residential streets at the east end near the Adamson Estate.

Spencer Smith Park

  • Location:


Spencer Smith Park at Burlingtonmarker is a prime example of the evolution of mixed-use development and city planning in the Greater Toronto Area. In 2006, the park became a symbol of the ongoing effort to reclaim the Lake Ontariomarker shoreline after the latest phase of redevelopment featured the opening of Spencer's, an upscale restaurant on grounds once occupied by the Mohawk Canoe Clubmarker.

Individuals and groups can sometimes be seen performing yoga, Tai Chi and other arts at the public gazebo here. In addition, Spencer Smith Park hosts the annual Sound Of Music festival, a longtime tradition and celebration for Halton and surrounding areas.
