Etobicoke Creek Recreational Trail

Following the creek through parks, urban forests and wildflower fields, this recreational trail has few road interruptions, allowing for long and peaceful excursions.

Chinguacousy Recreational Trail

The Chinguacousy Recreational Trail winds through several Brampton neighbourhoods, from Victoria Park in Bramalea extending 10 kilometres north to Dixie Road and Countryside Drive. While traveling this recreational trail, you will visit a stretch of suburbs, green spaces and local urban attractions.

Don Doan Recreational Trail

Running parallel to Chinguacousy Recreational Trail, the Don Doan Recreational Trail (formerly known as Professor's Lake Recreational Trail); is a predominantly suburban recreational trail that takes you through the east side of Bramalea neighbourhoods. Wayfinding signs navigate you approximately 11 kilometres north to Brampton’s popular beach and public swimming area, Professor’s Lake.

Esker Lake Recreational Trail

Taking you into some of the City’s most treasured parks, green spaces and conservation areas, the Esker Lake Recreational Trail showcases nature’s best. Plan a couple of hours or make a full day of it, with many options for activities en route, both urban and wild.
