The snow will soon be starting to melt away, revealing lush trails and spring blooms waiting to be explored. If you're ready to breathe in some fresh spring air, you don't even have to leave the city. Toronto is home to lots of serene trails, and you can reach them by hopping on the subway. Toronto's easy TTC hikes are the perfect spots to adventure to this spring.

You don't need to have a car in order to go hiking. The city is full of parks and trails that are accessible by TTC.

Since we're still waking up from our winter slumber, these hikes aren't too challenging, so you can enjoy the views without breaking a sweat.

High Park is always a wonderful place to wander through, especially during this season, when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.

Moccasin Trail Park is a true hidden gem, with quiet pathways and a colourful rainbow tunnel you can stroll through.

See the new spring blossoms at Toronto Botanical Gardens, or hit up a farmer's market after your hike at Don Valley Brickworks Park.

Of course, if you are willing to go outside of the city there are also a variety of Ontario hikes to you can add to your bucket list as well!
