The Bypass Trail runs parallel to the Fisher Lake Road. It is mainly used by horses to access the Carriage Road Trail and Zoo Trail, from the equestrian barns in the center of the park. The trail is rough and rocky but makes a more interesting way to access the Carriage Road Trail than walking on the road.

Drive past the Lily Lake Pavilion. At the end of the lake keep left and cross over the small causeway onto Fisher Lake Road. Climb the hill and continue driving for 750 metres. When the road turns sharply to the left, park along the parking area just off the end of the turn. You will find the Bypass Trail enter the woods after this parking area, just before the road turns sharply to the right.
The other end of the Bypass Trail can be found on the Carriage Road Trail near its junction with the Zoo Trail.
