TLTV Ep 90 – Beltline Trail
The Beltline Trail is a walking/running/biking/cross-country skiing path in the heart of Toronto, just north of Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue. It may also be the most beautiful path in the City of Toronto.
The 4.5km recreational east-west trail follows along the route of the 1890s Belt Line commuter steam railway which once circled the city. The trail is now lined with trees whose canopies meet overtop of the trail. The trail also passes by the back yards of some very expensive homes in the very upscale area of Forest Hill.
In this episode we’ll start by the pedestrian bridge that crosses Yonge Street, the longest street in the world. The bridge then passes over the TTC’s (Toronto Transit Commission) subway tracks before entering the beautiful tree-lined section. You will see many people out for a stroll or a brisk run, walking the dog, or riding their bikes. It really is one of the most relaxing places in the city.
