If you need a few trail suggestions, take a look at this list of our favourite places in Vaughan to take your dog on a walk:

Boyd Conservation Area Trail


Located at 8739 Islington Ave., the Boyd Conservation Area Trail runs along the Humber River Valley. Its picturesque view and scenery offers a wide variety of outdoor experiences for you and your dog. You can take a trip down the hiking trail that circles the Conservation Area, hang out at a picnic tables, sit in the shade in their seating shelters, play a game at the bocce courts, or just throw a ball around in the park. The area opens mid-spring and closes when the leaves change in the fall, however, it is available to pedestrians all winter long.

Humber River Trail


Beginning along the WIlliam Granger Greenway, the Humber River Trail spans 3.5km linking to the McMichael Art Gallery and Boyd Conservation Area (as stated above!). It’s open to the public for hiking, biking and (dog!) walking, and best of all, it’s completely free of charge. You and your pal will enjoy a walk through many significant natural habitats, cultural and heritage resources and the historic aboriginal trade route – you’ll be busy all day long.

Kortright Centre for Conservation Trail


Start your walk at 9550 Pine Valley Drive at the Kortright Centre for Conservation Trail. It’s open all season long for walking, hiking and dog adventures. It features 800 acres of forests, meadows, streams, ponds, marsh and river habitats and abundant wildlife. The forested area has several designated trails for all dog walking enthusiasts. There’s paved walkways, a boardwalk, and marsh, forestry, and marked trails. Something for every dog!

Bindertwine Park Trail


At 299 Stegman’s Mill lies a stunning trail that just can’t be beat. Bindertwine Park Trail is located just steps away from the main street (Islington), and features green grass, sports fields, and a trail that follows a stream for a couple kilometres – dogs just love this place. Along the way, there are several places to stop and look at nature, or take other trails deep into the woods. It’s well worth the visit!

Thackeray Park Trail


Located at 2995 Kipling Avenue, Thackeray Park is a trail hot spot. It has excellent routes with great descents, that are a great way to keep you and your pooch in shape. It’s usually pretty empty, leaving you to roam the secluded trails at your freedom. It’s one of the city’s best kept secrets!
