The West Toronto Railpath is a multi use asphalt trail in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, running from The Junction neighbourhood toward downtown Toronto.
The railpath was developed and funded by the City of Toronto for bicycle and pedestrian use by local area residents. It, along with the Beltline Trail, is an example of an urban rails-to-trail project. Phase 1 of the path opened up in 2009.
Phase 2, an extension south from Dundas Street West to Liberty Village, has received full funding from the provincial and federal governments.
