Single tracks are unsactioned

Follows the Etobicoke creek from Lake Ontario to just beyond Pearson airport. With the except of 2 road sections to work around the Markland Wood golf course, the route follows paved and gravel trails with some intermediate skill single tracks. The single tracks aren't difficult per se, just dangerous because of erosion and the sheer drops to the creek bed.

This route is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      Seems like the North end has been planted with small trees. Unable to find entrance. The trail was fine south of Toledo Road.
