We are wanting to do a day trip with Odin somewhere this weekend, nothing more than 1-2 hours away from Toronto. We want to hit some water (lake or river) that is dog friendly, has some shade, etc.

Anyone know of some nice spots?

Belleville has a dog park and dog hiking trails on Lake Ontario, it's a cute little town on the 401 east of TO: http://www.quintedogpark.com/newsletters/newsletter1-3.html

Hmmm...that's an idea, but we are in the west end of TOronto, and were thinking we didn't want to drive through the city.

I guess I should clarify then. We are looking for something west (i.e. quelph) or north (towards wasaga)

tried that, not much there. Google was useless as well. I was hoping to hear where others go.

Do you have to pay to enter those conservation areas? We are only doing a day trip...
