 Etobicoke Creek Recreational Trail

Etobicoke Creek Recreational Trail is named after the Etobicoke Creek, which runs parallel to the trail route. The name “Etobicoke” means “where the Black Alders grow” and it takes its name from the community that developed at the mouth of the creek, the City of Etobicoke.

 

 Esker Lake Recreational Trail

The word “esker” comes from the Gaelic word eiscir, or ridge. An esker is a ridge of sand and gravel deposited onto the land surface by a river flowing beneath a glacier. The Brampton Esker was formed approximately 10,000 years ago during the last advance of the Lake Ontario Lobe of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. The Brampton Esker is about eight kilometres long, two kilometres wide and up to 50 metres thick.
