Part of the Etobicoke creek system. This is a paved trail used to connect the southern part of the Etobicoke creek to the northern part. Once you take the bypass through the streets, you enter at Neilson park and head north. At Bloordale there's a single track that runs along the west side of the stream to the small bridge near a plaza. You can take Burnhamthorpe at this point and head west to Garnetwood to resume the Etobicoke creek trail or keep going north up to Centennial park. There you can try climbing the hill, some downhill on the ski slopes or even the new PANAM games BMX park. Then it's off to the west towards the creek to rejoin the main trail at the bottom of a steep hill.

Access Info

From the south: At Dundas street, go north on Neilson drive. Turn left on Neilson Drive. Go into Neilson park and locate the paved trail on the north side going into the woods.
From the North: Head a bit west on Rathburn from the Etobicoke Olympium and look left. You'll notice some green area with a paved trail going south and downhill.
