Oakville is home to an extensive 200km+ trail system that perfectly weaves through the town’s infrastructure. 

Get lost in your own town for a day and immerse yourself in nature with our one-day “in the trails” itinerary. 

Note: The suggestions below are based on information available in early April. Please double check with local COVID-19 policies and businesses to confirm if offers and activities are still available.

Take advantage of all the open space and practice social distancing when out and about in local trails. Try exploring a new trail and avoid overcrowding at local hot spots.

Sixteen Mile Morning

Give your morning a little boost with some breakfast to-go at a local café like Vereda CentralTribeca Coffee Co. or Taste of Colombia

Prepare for a picnic lunch before you leave for the trails, and grab a takeout sandwich or charcuterie meal from Sandwich Society or Farmhouse Artisan Cheeses

Make your next stop Sixteen Mile Creek Trail and hike all the way to Lions Valley Park for lunch in the valley. Make sure to bring picnic supplies so you can refuel before making the round trip back.

There are plenty of entrances and parking lots throughout Oakville leading into this trail, so you can hike for however long or short you want.

Pro tip: Hike along the inner valley route for some amazing outlooks onto the creek.

Midday walk at Bronte Creek Provincial Park
