Exploring the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail is day tripping at its best.
Walk or bike through parks, woods and along lakeside roads and trails. Stop off at bike-friendly businesses en route, including cafes, bars, restaurants, and shops. Over 30% of the Trail along Lake Ontario is off-road, with nearly all the trail paved with short gravel sections, so it’s great for family outings.
Walking or cycle day tripping is so easy with Trail to GO routes. Walk, ride (or drive) to your local GO station, and hop on a train or bus to one of the connected GO stations. You can access the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail from eleven GO Transit stations via low or no-traffic routes, often along established cycling trails.
Enjoy a day by the lake, perhaps walking or biking along the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail to another Trail to GO connection, and then catch the train or bus back home again.
