Not everyone wants to lace up their heavy hiking boots and go plodding across uneven land all day long. We're not all nature people, and even fall colours aren't enough to send some of us on a long uphill hike. Luckily, there are many more relaxing ways to enjoy the fall foliage in Toronto. These 6 Toronto fall walks won't have you panting for breath at the end of the day.

Stroll at your own pace through these serene Toronto trails that offer a much gentler way to experience autumn leaves. Get some fresh air and beautiful views with no hiking gear needed!
