Mount Toronto at Beare Hill Park

A former gravel pit, turned into a giant mound of garbage near the eastern edge of Toronto, Scarberia, I believe which provides great views of Toronto and Pickering. Located along the Rouge River at Finch Avenue and Beare Road, you can access the park from Meadowvale Road, or by following a trail from Pickering's Pinegrove Park or from numerous other trails in the area.

They have recently redone the park, making long, wide paths that lead up the mountain to a viewing area. Apparently the park is at 180m elevation, 10m over Centennial Parks ski hill (another landfill). The dump was closed in 1983 and plans for a ski hill fell through, now it is a nature area complementing the Rouge National Urban Park which will be one of the world's largest urban parks. Recent upgrades were started in March of 2019 and the park is open now.
