Scarborough Bluffs Trail

A great place to come to when you are looking for a quiet secluded area along the waterfront of east Toronto. Scarborough Bluffs or Bluffers Park is located at the foot of Brimley Road in Scarborough. The bluffs are actually quite impressive visually and there is a nice walking trail below the bluffs that lead through the park as well as some of the naturalized areas in between the cliffs and the park.

The Scarborough Bluffs stretch for about 14km along the Lake Ontario shore, from the Eastern Beaches of Toronto in the west, to West Hill in the east. At their highest at Cliffside, the bluffs rise 65m above the water. The bluffs have been formed primarily by erosion of the packed clay soil. In some places, such as the western end of Bluffers Park, the erosion has shaped the clay into interesting shapes. Information provided by the city of Toronto website.
