Doris McCarthy Trail

Doris McCarthy Trail

Kingston Rd and Ravine Dr down to the Bluffs, Scarborough, Ontario

Doris McCarthy Trail is named for acclaimed Scarborough artist Doris Jean McCarthy. The trail combines some of Doris McCarthy's favourite things: art, nature and the Canadian landscape. Enjoy the beautiful, trees, ravine and wildlife on the trail. As the trail levels out down to the Bluffs, metal Sculpture, Passage, is at the water's edge at the very bottom of the trail.

McCarthy was a long time Scarborough resident, having lived in her home atop the Scarborough Bluffs, affectionately named Fool's Paradise, for more than 70 years. She was a much loved and celebrated artist, writer, teacher and friend, and continues to be an inspiration to countless Canadians who have recognized her as one of the most cherished interpreters of our rugged landscape.
