Toronto Trails for Winter Hikes

With proper footwear and outdoor gear to keep you warm, a little snow (but maybe a little ice on some days) shouldn’t keep you away from the hiking trails this winter! With restrictions on life at present, it is still possible to spend some time outside. Refuel your spirit with some time out in nature. The Greater Toronto area has some great trails that are worthy of exploration.

Evergreen Brickworks

Located in the Don Valley, it is one of the best markets I’ve been to over the years. I love the beautiful integration of the outdoors into the building’s architecture, representing their mandate for sustainable living. The trail itself will take you about 20 minutes to get to the top with stunning views. It’s a magical place, where under normal circumstances you can enjoy a nice warm drink and a little shop at the facilities afterward. 

Humber River Recreational Trail

This 8.2 km paved trail is an ideal distance on a sunny afternoon. It’s a good option for those who live northwest in the city. It is also approachable by transit, and there is free parking. Given its location, it can be a bit busy, so it is worth considering times that may be a little quieter.

High Park Area Trails

Partially paved and partially dirt, this can get a little mucky in the snow. However, if prepared with the proper footwear, and perhaps you have a four-legged friend up for an adventure, these trails will do the trick. With just over 5 kilometers available for exploration, and minimal elevation within the well-known park, it offers easy accessibility to all. 

High Park is also conveniently close to the Feet First Clinic, located in Bloor West Village. This would be a great place to roam around after your appointment or try out your new boots!

Scarlett Mills Park

A 3.5 km trail with moderate elevation in terrain, this trail is great for a quick hike! It is also great for snowshoeing and biking. Located in Etobicoke, it’s a great location for a little bit of a challenge in it’s terrain, giving opportunity to try out different winter activities on this trail.

Beltline Trail

Not too far from the Brickworks trail mentioned above, the Beltline is an 8.9 km out and back trail. It’s a mainly flat path, so the terrain isn’t too treacherous for explorers of all levels. It’s a great multi-activity trail for this reason too. A bit of a longer jaunt, if you are looking to keep warm, make sure you keep yourself heated up by layering or moving quickly! Don’t forget to enjoy the scenic views of course.
