The Waterfront Trail follows the shore of Lake Ontario from Niagara-on-the-Lake to the Ontario-Quebec border in the east
Oshawa is home to Second Marsh, the largest remaining coastal wetlands between Niagara and Presqu'ile. The preservation of this thriving marsh is a testimony to the dedication of concerned citizens and the leadership of General Motors in regenerating Lake Ontario.
The majority of the Trail is 3-metre asphalt with some sections on road allowances. Trail users are permitted to use the sidewalk in front of Lakefront West Park. Beaches, concessions and washrooms are located at the main waterfront park, Lakeview Park.
The Oshawa Creek Trail - intersects with the Waterfront Trail in Lakeview Park. The Trail also passes by Pumphouse Marsh, Second Marsh Wildlife Area and McLaughlin Bay Wildlife Reserve. Each of these areas has secondary trails that have a number of interpretive signs noting natural areas of interest.
