Hidden Gems: Toronto

Published June 18, 2019 11:45

Discover Hidden Gems in your community.

Looking for somewhere fresh to ride? We are excited to launch a brand new Hidden Gems series as part of Bike Month across the GTHA and Guelph. These weekly features will give you insider tips on some of the best trails, paths, and on-street bike facilities. Whether you cycle to work, ride the trails on the weekend, or bike to get around town, we hope you’ll find a hidden gem. Then, share it with a friend, colleague, or family member who wants to give biking a try this spring.

Discover the Lower Don Recreational Trail in full bloom and take in colourful murals and beguiling sculptures.

Toronto may be a big, bustling city, but you can find pockets of tranquility in ravines and along waterways.
