Glen Steward Ravine Trail, The Beaches & Ashbridges Bay Park Trail


This is a short walk but it's a good one to start with for those looking to learn about Toronto's ravine system. That's because the city of Toronto parks department has developed an interpretive nature trail through the Glen Stewart Ravine and an attractive pocket-size guidebook to go with it. The city hopes that city residents in general and school groups in particular will take advantage of these resources to learn to appreciate the beauty and hidden charms of this narrow ravine. Another interesting aspect of this walk is the contrast between the natural setting of Glen Stewart Ravine and the artificially created Ashbridge's Bay Park.

At the southerly end of the ravine, the stream disappears underground and the forest gives way to a grassy open area that is being allowed to regenerate naturally. Walkers can continue south along Glen Manor Dr. East until reaching a small park just north of Queen on the lefthand side. There are some pretty rockeries in this steep-sided little park. Following teh path through it will bring you out to Queen st. Cross Queen and continue south on Glen Manor until you come to the Beaches boardwalk. Follow the boardwalk west and, when it ends, the paved bicycle path through Beaches Park to Ashbridge's Bay Park. Directions: Take the 502 or 503 streetcar to Kingston Road and Beech Avenue.
