The Toronto Beltline Trail is a linear park running about 14 km through the northeast part of the city, connecting the neighborhoods of Rosedale, Moore Park, Forest Hill, Chaplin Estates, and Fairbank. The surface is a mix of terrain and is fairly flat. There are parks, woods, and ravines along the way. There are street crossings along the way, and a few sections where one must leave the trail to connect to the next section. Note the trail is not always well signed. Built on a former rail bed, the trail consists of three sections:
