This morning we headed over to Lion’s Valley Park in Oakville to enjoy a walk/hike on the Sixteen Mile Creek Trail. After reading up online about the trail we decided to scope it out for future walks/hikes. We got to the park very easily, driving east on Dundas and taking a right on Lions Valley Park right after the bridge. The road led us down to a parking area and we headed out on foot across the pedestrian bridge then up the west bank trail. It was a somewhat steep climb to the top where a couple of other cars were parked and we followed a road to a subdivision. There was a dirt path that we saw cyclists come out of but we didn’t venture there this time. The path was off the left side of the path right after a small guard rail.
We headed back down to the park and walked north to the end of the path which stopped at the creek. Another couple was waiting patiently for their dog to get out of the water and fetch his ball on the other side of the creek. He was having a great time but did end up getting his ball when he was good and ready. 🙂 There was a dirt path off to the left here as well but we chose not to venture there this time either.
It’s a beautiful area and next time we’ll tackle the East Bank – maybe even all the way to Upper Middle road.
