Perfect trail for a stroll or run
Oct. 2019
This a a perfect trail for runners or walkers to keep in shape. The path is paved and relativly flat. The path is also used by bikes so it can be a bit crowdy. Its a trail thru an green area squized between the river and highway. Because of the highwaynoise you won’t get that walking in nature feeling, but instead the upwards views of the Price Edward viaduct are very impressive. The path is part of the discoverywalks system from the Toronto cityboard. On their site are many more nice walks thru parts of the town. So looking for a walk of a few hours this might be your choice.

Run in a busy city!

You can get a nice quiet run despite the fact you're in a city of a few million people, so that's great!

A great bike route ( #45) now that it is finally finished.

If you want to ride north of the end of Rte 45, that is from Wilket Creek Park ( near Leslie) north to Edwards Gardens, the trail is closed and not bike friendly - better to hike this one as walking a bike can be difficult.

Nature Trails and Parks

If you are visiting Toronto and are able bodied, hire a bike and cycle the Don Valley Trail. The paths are well maintained and signposted. The number of parks you pass through is amazing. As there are no cafes or shops on the trail bring water and/or drinks with you. You can rent bikes from CA$35 for 24 hours from Wheel Excitement, you will also get a cyclist map of Toronto cycle paths.

Under utilized urban trail - great for running and biking
Aug. 2015 • Solo
This trail follows the Don river in the lower Don River valley, most well known for the Don Valley Parkway (highway). Hidden among the trees and alongside the river, except for a couple of short distances when the trail bends near to the highway, this is a paved path in a green, peaceful, oasis of nature next to the river. Because there are few access points meaning longer distances between entries and exits less casual walkers are present. Mostly used by joggers and cyclists, some fishermen and urban hikers. The beauty of it is the convenience. that it is so close to so many residents. from my place on dundas east I access the trail at the steps at the queen st east bridge. From there the trail heads north approx. 12 k and then splits - you can continue east a few kms up the beautiful taylor creek trail or head west. south takes you a few kms down to connect with the paths along the lakeshore - east to the beaches area and west to downtown. All separate and protected bike lanes. No water fountains. enjoy this hidden gem in the city !!

Convenient to access Don River
Oct. 2014 • Solo
I used to fish the Don in the Fall when salmon were running. The trail was a convenient and easy way to access the river without damaging local flora. I preferred the Humber but the Don provided some variation. Evenings were best.

Beautiful trail within city
Sep. 2015 • Couples
Lower Don River Trail is the most convenient way for the people lives around the area who want to reach to the lakeshores of the Lake Ontario. It is a beautiful trail between Lower Don River and Don Valley Parkway mostly run close to the Don River. Some parts are also adjacent to the noisy and stressful slabs of Don Valley Parkway. It is good option to reach the Downtown Toronto for bicycle enthusiasts and cyclists of Toronto both for leisure trips on weekends or go to work on weekdays. it is also good for jogging and hiking.
