With the exception of a short distance on Victoria Street, Whitby's Waterfront Trail is off-road and paved. There are a number of beautiful natural areas to enjoy, for example Lynde Shore Conservation Area and Thickson's Woods, the last remnant of old-growth white pines on the north shore of Lake Ontario.
The Rowe House, the first mayor's house, is open for you to explore Whitby's history. New in 2005 is Port Whitby Marina's Clubhouse. This facility is open to the public and is an excellent short stop for food and refreshment. Victoria Street is a busy road with gravel shoulders - use extreme caution. Cycling on the paths through Thickson's Woods is prohibited. Bridge crossing over Corbett Creek
Parking: Port Whitby Rotary Sunrise Lake Park - 269 Water St. Heydenshore Kiwanis Park - 589 Water St. GO Transit - Whitby Station - 1350 Brock St. South.
