Please note there is a temporary trail closure on the Hamilton Recreation Beach Trail at the Burlington Canal Bridge. The closure will be in effect from July 4 to 28, 2016, Monday to Thursday from 7 am to 5 pm. There will be days with no pedestrian or cycling access across the bridge.
Eight waterfront parks, beautiful beach, vibrant renewed downtown waterfront, pier and promenade make Burlington a favourite stop.
Burlington’s Trail splits into two sections on its western end. When travelling from East to West, the Trail splits just west of Spencer Smith Park at Maple Avenue and Lakeshore Rd. Head south along the Beachway over the lift bridge beside the skyway, or take the northern option following pretty residential North Shore Blvd around Burlington Bay and Hamilton Harbour.
