Cootes Paradise - Waterfront Trail

Parking: Pier 8 - Canada Marine Discover Centre,Pier 4 Park - Leander Dr. and Guise St. and Dundurn Park-York Blvd. The Hamilton Waterfront Trail (7.5km): follows Hamilton Harbour from Princess Point (Cootes Paradise) through Bayfront Park, Pier 4 Park, the Discovery Centre and on to HMCS Haida. You'll also find Williams Coffee Pub, a Waterfront Ice Cream stand and the Hamilton Harbour Queen Cruises nearby.

At Cootes Paradise there is an impressive staircase with a cycling trough leading to Dundurn Park and some amazing lookouts. From here you can connect to Burlington via York Street- extreme caution is needed when crossing the ramp from the 403. Note: The staircase at Coote's Paradise is quite large and steep and can be a challenge for cyclists with full paniers.
