Richmond Hill Running Options

Google Street View

There are some good running options in Richmond Hill, in the south-central York Region. The best places to run in Richmond Hill are:

Oak Ridges Trail. Google Street View

Oak Ridges Trail. Choose a section of this longer distance path. The gravel path is a combination of open and wooded, with some rolling hills. We’ve mapped 8.6 km one-way between Lake Wilcox Park and Jefferson Side Rd. From Lake Wilcox, run south. The first 3.5 km are east of Bayview Ave., in the Oak Ridges Corridor. Cross Bayview, where there’s a nice, open section in the Bond Lake area. Follow the Oak Ridges Trail to Jefferson Ave. You can pick up the Saigeon Trail just south of there, at Meander Park.

Saigeon Trail & Trans Richmond Trail.  In the central part of Richmond Hill, one can put together a run of several km combining these two trails. Starting at Meander Park, pick up the Saigeon Extension Trail and run for 1 km south to Tower Hill Rd. Then pick up the main part of the Saigeon Trail, for 1.5 km to Gamble Rd. Here, there’s a road connection: LEFT on Gamble for 0.2 km, LEFT on Gamble for 0.4 km, connecting to the Trans Richmond Trail — a paved path along a narrow ribbon of green running east-west for 2 km between Yonge and Bathurst. There are some small parks along the way. Combining these two trails is 5.2 km one-way. ROUTE MAP
