DIRECTIONS AND MAP

Jumping Trout Map

TTC : Old Mill subway station, then walk north on Old Mill Trail, turn right on Old Mill Rd, cross the Humber river, and turn right towards parking lot and pedestrian path that runs along the river. The first dam is the best place to watch – it’s about 10 minute walk from the subway station.

Driving: simply park at Etienne Brule parking lot, then walk about 5 minutes  along Humber River towards the dam that is visible from the parking lot.

Warning: the paved path is mucky in places, bring boots!

Guys fishing for trout. Note that you have to be at least 60m from the dam and have valid fishing license.
