Great quick hike! It took us 3.5hr round trip and that's including a lunch break. It was pretty busy so go early to get parking. It's a steady incline (nothing too steep) the whole trail and at the end a small scramble to see the Victoria Glacier. Lots of great photo opportunities and beautiful view of Lake Louise from up top. It's very windy and brisk at the top so bring a wind breaker and gloves. Lots of people with dogs and kids so it's good for everyone.
It's a beautiful place to hike but costs $6.75 per person over 15 yo to enter. For a family it can get kind of pricey. They have a fire pit and supply wood where you can have a fire though. I think that's a great perk; families sit around roasting hot dogs or marshmallows. Lots of picnic tables as well.
I was amazed that this trail was so close to Markham. It is truly beautiful and serene. It follows a river for most of the trail along with some forays into the woods. The trail is easy and suitable for family hikes for the first mile starting at Whitevale road (where it is labelled Seaton Trail South. After the first Mile going South, there are some significant elevation changes and some steep cliffs - less advisible for young children or those who are looking for an easy stroll. It was a good workout out and back for a very fit middle aged individual.
Nice well maintained trail. We hiked a total of 14km. One steep section coming down southern outlier trail. The view from the lookout point overlooking south is spectacular. Many features including forest, ponds, stream, views. I followed a combination of Bruce trail main and side trails but there are many local trails.
