Waterfront Trail Cruising

This seamlessly smooth and paved trail connecting Burlington and Hamilton is perfect for parents with trailers and kid seats, as well as little ones learning to pedal on their own. Ride the scenic shorelines of Lake Ontario and enjoy playgrounds, parks, beaches and food stops along the way.
If you’re looking for a full-day adventure, start your journey in Burlington at Spencer Smith Park and make your way to Wild Waterworks. Kids can enjoy the park’s playground before you descend on the easy 10-km pedal to the water park. Be sure to stop at the Burlington Canal Lift Bridge to watch ships pass through and refresh at Kinsman Park’s playground and facilities. A stop for ice cream is also a must.
We also recommend stopping at Beach Way ParkBarangas on the Beach and Hutch's.
