The Oxbow Trail

A terrific walk for toddlers and preschoolers. It’s behind Todmorden Mills (see smokestack pic below) at 67 Pottery Road just off Bayview. An adult could walk it in 7 minutes but it’s a good hour with toddlers. A perfect fall walk. Cool little talking stations (see pic below) that tell you what you are looking at with a push of a button. My kids pushed them often :) it’s a 10 minute drive from our building with no traffic. Access to trail is at the very end of the long parking lot. There is one stair with about 8 wooden steps. Otherwise you can push a stroller around it freely.

Below is what it says about getting their by TTC. The walk down the hill would be great.

"By transit, take any TTC bus north from Broadview Station on the Bloor-Danforth line, get off at Pottery Road and walk 5 minutes down the hill"

The walk back up at the end will be pretty tough as its a very big hill!!!
