Glen Stewart Ravine Trail is a short walk but it’s a good one to start with for those looking to learn about Toronto’s ravine system. That’s because the city of Toronto parks department has developed an interpretive nature trail through the ravine and an attractive pocket-size guidebook to go with it.

At the southerly end of the ravine, the stream disappears underground and the forest gives way to a grassy open area that is being allowed to regenerate naturally. Walkers can continue south along Glen Manor Dr. East until reaching a small park just north of Queen on the left hand side. There are some pretty rockeries in this steep-sided little park. Following the path through it will bring you out to Queen st. Cross Queen and continue south on Glen Manor until you come to the Beaches boardwalk.

Follow the boardwalk west and, when it ends, the paved bicycle path through Beaches Park to Ashbridge’s Bay Park.
