Ajax Waterfront Trail
This is a beautiful stretch of continuous asphalt trail with the exception of a 1.7 km section on Bayly Street; this is a busy road with gravel shoulders - use extreme caution. Along the way there are great views of Lake Ontario and plenty of amenities (washrooms and refreshments) available in Rotary Park at Duffins Creek. The next available waterfront amenities are located in Whitby.
The trail around Carruther's Marsh now connects to a trail right-of-way that runs parallel to Hoile Dr.. At the intersection of Hoile and Ashbury/Range Road, the Trail travels west along the unpaved Range Road. At the end of Range Road, turn south.
A few metres south on the west side you'll find the entrance to the off-road trail (screened limestone) that will take you to Hall's Rd. It's difficult to find as it is not signed but this connection minimizes time spent on busy Bayly Street.
At the foot of Harwood Avenue South you will find Harwood Point Historical Gardens, dedicated to HMS Ajax, the Royal Navy ship after which the town was named. Great interpretation panels describe the Town of Ajax's history.
For more information, contact the park or your local area or district office of the Ministry of Natural Resources.
