A family favourite. I try and get there to walk my dog when it's warm enough. Trail is well designed and definitely scenic. It just has to be warm enough to walk near the water!

What a gorgeous walk. I love spending time here with my family. It can get crowded on nice days but still a pleasure to be there.

Good for long or short hike without too much of a challenge. With great scenery around the bay & fresh air.

Just a great place to hike for adults or kids. Lots of trails and if you want to throw a fishing line in your can do that as well.

If you have to park your car make sure to pay at the parking meter. The last thing you want to do is come back to a parking ticket. The trail is very wide and easy. Great areas to stop and enjoy the view of the lake.

I have walked this exact trail and over this bridge for many years. Various viewpoints offer offer scenic opportunities for photographers and families alike. Recently a rogue beaver is enjoying taking down some mature trees, I hope he gets re-located soon,

The waterfront trail is the main attraction of this area. It's simply lovely to walk along the shoreline, winding through the park and trees, as you stroll. The paved trail is popular among the locals, and you'll meet many families on your way. It's truly a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

A great trail from Burlington Spencer Park, but remember you have to come back for the car, when you reach the canal.
