Earl Bales Dog Park and York Cemetery
A visit to the dog park followed by a walk through a forest
The route I recommend is a 3 km loop. Use the parking lot for the Earl Bales Dog Park that is located on Don River Blvd.
Start your visit at the off-leash dog park. This is one of the better dog parks I've seen as it is large and has a run in the forest for dogs to chase each other.
After visiting the dog park, cross the bridge and walk down Don River Blvd to Burnett Park.
You'll walk through what feels like a secret neighbourhood. Turn right onto the path just past the last house.
Follow the paved path up the hill.
This path takes you directly to York Cemetery. Follow the trail beside the Cemetery until it ends at a fence.
There are many access points into the forest, so feel free to choose where you want to enter. We went right to the end to make sure we covered as much ground as possible.
Play with friends and follow the many trails through the forest. The trails are well maintained, but steep in a few places. There are so many routes through the forest that if you think one path is too steep, choose another.
The path ends in Burnett Park near where you started. We wandered around and found a public washroom and several picnic areas.
