Scarborough Bluffs Trail Map

A haven of serenity right next to the city.

The stunning Scarborough Bluffs trace the banks of lake Ontario for 14 kilometers, rising over 60 metres above the water. This 5-km trail meanders along Lake Ontario's waterfront. It's accessible year-round to calm your urban-dwelling soul.

For surfers: Bluffers Park has fairly consistent swells when east and southeast winds are blowing. Because the water is deeper here, surfing is best in winter when cold air and water mix.
