The West Toronto RailPath is a multi-use asphalt trail running from Toronto, Canada's The Junction neighbourhood toward downtown Toronto. The RailPath has been developed and funded by the City of Toronto for bicycle and pedestrian use by local area residents and is an example of an urban rails-to-trail project.

Construction of Phase 1 of the path, running from Cariboo Avenue to Dundas Street West/Sterling Road, was designed by Scott Torrance Landscape Architect Inc. in conjunction with Brown and Storey Architects and began in 2008 and was completed in 2009. The project combines the restoration of historical rail bridges with the installation of new public art pieces by artist John Dickson, all situated within a pallet of indigenous planting. New entrance points at Dupont Street and Bloor Street allow pedestrians to access the trail from street level and utilize the restored rail bridges that cross over the busy streets at these intersections. Unifying rhythms of concrete plazas are located along the entire trail at points where existing neighbourhood streets intersect the trail. These plazas provide strong neighbourhood connections and places for gathering within the surrounding community.

The realization of Phase 2 will potentially be coordinated with planned expansion of rail services along the Georgetown rail line.
