Etobicoke Creek Recreational Trail (34.5 KMs)
The much anticipated interregional connection on the Etobicoke Creek Recreational Trail from Brampton, to Mississauga, to Caledon is now complete. You can walk, hike or cycle continuously between the three communities.
The new two-kilometre interregional connection fills a critical gap in the trail between Brampton and Mississauga, allowing safe passage under Highway 407 and Highway 410, from the Kennedy Road Trail entrance, to the city limit. It provides a continuous off-road active transportation route that connects Lake Ontario and the Waterfront Trail to the Greenbelt Trail in Caledon.
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 (9 KMs)
The Chinguacousy Recreational Trail winds through several Brampton neighbourhoods, from Victoria Park in Bramalea extending 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 (11 KMs)
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.
