Important Trail Updates:
- Construction begins on Queen's Quay Toronto and it may be difficult to access the Trail--but the payoff will be fantastic.
- The Trail east of Port Union and west of the Rouge in Toronto is under construction. It may look like you can follow it along the water's edge but you'll reach a barrier. Please use Lawrence Road. See Map 2.16
- Trail near in Toronto near Leslie street will be affected by construction on the new streetcar facility in September. See the City of Toronto website for more info

maps, itineraries, and trip suggestions have been developed to assist Trail
users in planning both their recreational and commuting trips along the
Waterfront Trail. It shows signed routes of the Trail, as well as possible
routes and connections in areas where routes have not yet been designated
as part of the Waterfront Trail. The possible routes and connections have
been identified in consultation with the municipalities and Conservation
Authorities of Lake Ontario and from Trail users. Some of these possible
routes and connections may not be ideal for cycling, in-line skating, or
hiking. They may be unsuitable for some Trail users because of the close
proximity to vehicular traffic or unsuitable trail surface. Whenever possible,
indicators have been placed on the maps to warn of caution areas. However,
be prepared to make your own evaluation of traffic, trail and road conditions,
and plan routes appropriate to your riding, in line skating, and hiking
skills and your comfort level. This map is not intended as a guide for children.
