The Brooklin Lions Wilderness Trail is located in the Village of Brooklin just east of the junction of Highways 7 and 12. It parallels the East Lynde Creek south of Winchester Road starting from the Luther Vipond Memorial Arena.

The 1.6 kilometre trail officially opened on September 16, 2000 as a joint millennium project between the Brooklin District Lions Club and the Town of Whitby Parks Department. The goal is to provide a healthy walking area that benefits both humans and nature. The trail will provide an accessible, educational, ecologically balanced trail that will feature long term monitoring of the biotic and abiotic components of the creek, its floodplain, and the surrounding tablelands.

It is hoped that this trail guide will allow you an appreciation and an understanding of one of our greatest assets, the natural areas of the Town of Whitby. Enjoy the trail.
