There are plenty of Ontario hiking opportunities right across this province, some long distance such as the Bruce Trail and Trans Canada Trail while others such as the Seaton Trail are close to Toronto and suitable for day hiking. Then too there are some that are not as well known such as the Humber Valley Heritage Trail.
