Google Street View
In southeastern Barrie, there are numerous small parks with pleasant paths that make for a nice run. One of our favorites is Wilkins Walk, where runners can put together a ~7 km route, with some good add-on options. The trail is mainly gravel, through a narrow but long park following Hewitt’s Creek.
Access the trail from Capps Dr. right at the lake. It’s 2 km one-way. To make it a longer run, there’s a connector trail that runs from the west end of the park west to Cox Hill Rd. for 0.8 km. This would make the total route 6.7 km.
Add-Ons: From Cox Hill Rd., runners can access the wooded trail along Lovers Creek.
- Full route is 6.7 km (4.1 miles), including the connector trail
- Fairly flat
- Off Capps Dr. near the lake
- Numerous access points
