There's no shortage of scenic places to walk in Toronto, a city that prides itself on over 1,600 parks and green spaces. Lakefront promenade at Marilyn Bell Park There's no skyline view from the promenade at Marilyn Bell, but it's about as close to the lake as you can get, and on a clear day you can easily see the escarpment across the lake.
Look for wildflowers, rhododendrons and roses amongst the various flora, and be sure to pause contemplatively on one of the many wood bridges that cross the Don River tributaries. Moore Park Ravine The trail that runs southeast alongside Mud Creek features a tree canopy that'll make you think you've left the city altogether.
High Park's rolling hills offer many ravine walks, ponds and, of course, the Cherry Blossoms. There are trails all over the park and lots of paved paths if you prefer not to venture too far off the beaten track.
None of the trails are overly challenging to walk, but the scenery is such that you'll feel much further north of the city's core than you really are.
