“Nice Trail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

Nice trail system in Burlington. You can bike all the way to Hutches fish and chips. It can get busy on popular days though.

“waterfront trail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

It's a trail, its by the water.

It is very nice to walk around and take in the views. If you like to walk and like the water, this is the trail for you.

“Great walking or running or photography trail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

The trail runs along the waterfront in Burlington and I have walked and run along it many times. It is also a great place for photos with the wooded sections or beach areas. There is a nice little area right near the bottom of Brant street that is secluded and has a little "lagoon" where you can often find ducks swimming. Of course, numerous miles of beach are also great spots for photos. Naturally, in the summer families visit and spend time on the beach with BBQs nearby. The trails run for miles along the waterfront so it is a good place for a run of 5 or 10km although at one point you will have to cross the bridge. You can rent a small boat or board for paddle surfing and even a small cabana for really hot days to get out of the sun

“Back to Basics Naturally”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

The trail is easily accessible from just about anywhere; one of our favourites is parking at LaSalle Park, to enjoy the view and then take a walk along the trail. The pace can be as leisurely as you may want (or not), and sites around (and in the Bay) are awesome.
Plants, trees, the water and the various ducks, geese, gulls and swans are all there for you to watch and enjoy.
There has been a significant amount of work done recently to ensure that the trail is easy to follow and safe for everyone. It is certainly well worth spending an hour (or more), and no $$'s to get back to Nature.

“Love the Burlington Trail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

It is true, watch out for cyclists, rollerbladders, and people having fun. What a glorious way to spend a Saturday or Sunday morning. I love go for my walk and finish with a coffee by the lake..you can sneak a peak into beautiful backyards, and hear waterfountains running. I love the walk in the winter just as much. It is not shoveled, which makes it so natural. No cyclists or rollerbladders, as a matter of fact it is very quiet and peaceful.
Try it!
