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.

Take a nice walk and see the waterfront that the City boasts. The trail winds along the shore and was nice in March will be better in June. Talk a walk get a coffee enjoy Ontario

We absolutely love going down to the waterfront and riding our bikes from the Burlington Pier, down to Burangas on the beach. Beautiful... but they do need to clean up the garbage on the beach.

The waterfront trail is a great place to walk, run, ride, and roll. The path is long and well maintained. a great view of the lake. One of my favorite spots to walk, when i'm not out in the forest
