      Follows the Etobicoke creek from lake Ontario to just past the airport. Starting at Marie Curtis park it's mostly paved trail up to the QEW. Then it's a single track along the east or west side of the creek up to Dundas. The Markland woods golf course breaks up the south and north sections of the trail from Dundas to Burnhamthorpe. At Dundas street you can take the Bloordale park paved trail or a small single track on the west bank of the stream. You can ride up to Burnhamthorpe and take the street westbound to Garnetwood park or you can keep going north to Centennial park on the paved trail. through Centennial you go westbound to a steep hill which leads back to the main trail along the creek. Along the way, there are some small single tracks to try. From Garnetwood, you can take the single track on the east side up to the steep hill. From this junction there's a west side and east side single track to take up to and somewhat beyond the 401. Afterwards you can keep going north along the gravel trail to past the airport which ends at a Tim Hortons. there are several single track offshoots along the whole length of the trail (north and south sections) you can try. You can always start at the north end and go downhill towards the lake as well since some tracks are better in that direction.
