Rouge National Urban Park

A Stone’s Throw from The City

This is a place I visit quite often as it throws up the odd surprise encounter, has several trails, and is just on the eastern edge of Toronto. Depending on when you visit, you might meet with any number of creatures. Personally I’ve seen a couple of dozen bird species here, deer and smaller mammals, newts, turtles, and so on. The park is meant to be home to around 1,700 different species including 247 bird species (hint: that’s two-thirds of the species you’re likely to see in Ontario).

There are 13 trails at Rouge Park including a couple of much shorter ones. I have taken The Mast Trail, The Orchard Trail and The Vista Trail. Bear in mind that this park gets pretty busy during the summer months, especially on weekends.

As I write about hikes I have taken here, they will appear in the list below.
