Humber Arboretum Trails vary in their difficulty and accessibility. Near the main entrance at the back of Humber College, level and gently sloping paths are made up of interlocking stone and hard-packed gravel that can take you through the ornamental gardens. By entering the forest near the gardens, you can enjoy the level trail of the upper forest loop. Venture down wooded slopes and stairs to explore the lower forest, meadow paths, and to connect to the paved trail along the Humber River.
