Toronto just got a breathtaking new trail through the urban forest

Toronto is a massive city, but one of the greatest things it has to offer is beautiful green spaces throughout.

And now there's another spot to add to your list, because the Valley Land Trail is finally open

The main portions of the trail are lit up by handrail lighting, and UTSC says the unlit portions should only be used during the day.
