Great view of Lake Ontario and The Duffins Creek marshlands from the bridge. Good for bird watchers. Last year a bald eagle took up residence for about two weeks.

The trail is paved the entire way, and damaged areas in Ajax have been restored or bypassed. The path has gently rolling hills with alternating forested and lake views. It's a wonderful 18km.

You can walk for miles and miles along lovely paths around the lake. There are picnic tables and benches along the way. I love to take a picnic with me.

Not a bad place to go but there are so many other Lakeside destinations in the area with better views in my opinion to go to.

I liked the waterfront walk and the walk through the town when we couldn't get any parking near the water. There's still a few things that can be done but this area is a real nice place to explore. Nice surprise!
