Lonely Planet review

Atop this 14km stretch of glacial lakeshore cliffs, enjoy stunning views across Lake Ontario. Erosion has created cathedral spire formations, exposing evidence of five different glacial periods. Without wheels, getting to the bluffs can be a drag. Take the subway to Victoria Park, then bus 12 along Kingston Rd to Cathedral Bluffs Dr, east of the St Clair Ave E intersection.

If you're driving, from Kingston Rd (Hwy 2), turn south at Cathedral Bluffs Dr to reach the highest section of the bluffs, Cathedral Bluffs Park (65m). You can also access the shore at Galloway Rd further east. About 6km further east, you'll come to Guildwood Park , one of Toronto's most fascinating, filled with architectural relics and sculptures collected from the 1950s to 1970s by the forward-thinking Rosa and Spencer Clark.
