We enjoyed a great walk along this trail today, right beside the lake. It was busy, so we kept the dog on his leash.

Take advantage of a nice day to explore this unique area by the lake within the shadows of the Nuclear power Plant. Also a short drive around the Bay to more western bay beach and walkways.

This McKay Rd address is wrong, and not accessible to the Waterfront Trail. It is an Industrial area.

Did this route many times during The Great Cycling Challenge for Sick Kids . Nice views along the lake, few marshes with lots of water fowl. Nice to see lots of people in the morning walking,biking, and jogging.

Great cycling path along the Lake Ontario coastline-very civilized way to spend a few hours on a regular basis.

I stopped by today and the Pickering beach portion is temporarily closed. There is beach sand all over the boardwalk and it's buckled. Not safe for man or beast.

The pokemon stops are still there and very open. I didn't check the latrines, but they should be closed, it is the off season afterall.

Lastly the view is really good.

Summer isn't complete without taking a long walk along the Waterfront Trail. It's clean, well maintained and the view of the lake on a nice day is quite beautiful.

Smooth asphalt with adequate width; enough incline & descent for an interesting bike ride. The Road sections from Petticoat to Frenchman’s Bay are non busy & easily navigable. The stellar section is beyond Pickering.

The trail is open and the water is gone, a little sandy at the end of the bridge and at the end of the trail going into the park

If you enjoy cycling, the waterfront trail from Pickering beach to Oshawa offers 40 km of paved bike/multipurpose trail that goes through around 40% waterfront, 50% forests/parks and 10% of being parallel to a roadway (but separate from the car lane). All paved, all connected. Cyclists’ dream come true.
