The Martin Goodman Trail runs through downtown Toronto along the shore of Lake Ontario (with minor deviations). The trail is approximately 20 km long (about 12.5 miles) and is a smoothly paved path for cyclists, rollerbladers, and runners/walkers. This isn't exactly "mountain biking," but for distance riding, this is perhaps the best trail in the city and offers diverse landscapes from beaches to wooded areas and abandoned industrial sites to upscale developments. A great "Toronto" experience for visitors and locals alike. There are also numerous places to stop for water, food, or other refreshment.

If you plan on riding the entire trail, starting at the east end is nice because your ride ends at Humber Bridge, where the Humber River empties into Lake Ontario. On the west side of the bridge there's a small peninsula where one can sit and look out on the lake and the Toronto skyline. A nice finish (or halfway point, if you're going back) to your ride.
