Here are six Mississauga options for getting out on your bike and off the road.
Osprey Marsh Loop Trail
If you enjoy the water and viewing wildlife, take a ride around the Osprey Marshand spot a blue heron. Easy access via the Lisgar Meadow Brook Trail or the Britannia multi-use trail.
You can also view nesting waterfowl in the Creditview Wetland where you’ll find rare marsh plants and a little wooden viewing platform. Access from the south on the Eglinton Avenue Trail and from the north on the Bristol Road bike lanes. Both entrances lead to Fallingbrooke Drive where you will see an entrance to the Creditview Wetland.
Turnbridge Road and Wallenberg Crescent
If you’re on family ride through Mississauga’s city core, check out some interesting art at the corner of Turnbridge Road and Wallenberg Crescent, which leads you through Zonta Meadows Park where the kids can stop at the playground.
Lakefront Promenade Park Trail
Check out the waterfront along the Lakefront Promenade Park Trail. Ride by Lake Ontario, enjoy the water, a cool breeze off the lake, or take a break for a picnic while enjoying some wildlife.
Etobicoke Creek Trail
For a quieter forested trail, set away from the hustle, ride the Etobicoke Creek Trail that hooks up to Garnetwood Park. For a short ride, enter the trail along Burnhamthorpe East Multi-Purpose Trail. For a lengthier ride along the Etobicoke Creek Trail, head north from Eglinton Avenue East to Britannia Road East and Dixie Road. If you are quiet and lucky, you may see a muskrat, deer, crane or fox.
And finally, try the Riverwood Conservancy, accessed from the Burnhamthorpe Multi-Purpose Trail. This trail is steeped with wildlife, history, natural beauty and many of its trails follow the Credit River.
