This was actually a loop trail we did snowshoeing in February. The trail was well packed and marked through thick forests. Either direction you go will be a good climb up with some level areas. The views at the summit were amazing. Beautiful forests and mountain views make this a great hike for people in fairly good shape!
I love the Leslie Spit, whether for running or walking or finding unexpected nature in the heart of the city. The Leslie Spit is a landscape of contrasts, nature digging it's way out of industrial cast offs.
Definitely a hidden (in plain sight) gem.
This trail goes through some very interesting landscapes . We did a few point to point treks at different times to cover the whole trail . We used local cab companies to drop us off then walk back to our vehicle . Dave at Fergus cab was a great help . We ate supper at Belwood and a couple times in Erin . The Erin restaurant was about one km up the road from the trail crossing , very good food . Be sure to check out the dam at Belwood Lake . Happy trails . K
This is a beautiful trail and perfect for longer distance backpacking . Yes there are a few deep holes to watch out for and a couple detours . Surprisingly the oddest occurrence was Mennonite bike traffic . Twice they rode their bikes right into us ?? These were different people at different times on different sections of trail with no apology . I'm still trying to figure these encounters out so watch out for bike traffic . Lots of apple trees full of fruit on some sections .This trail continues on to Goderich as the G 2 G trail . We have trekked some sections west of Milverton but they are pretty rough and full of ticks so dress accordingly . K
I agree this is a must for walkers and hikers . I thought a little short for backpacking but would have been more leisurely in the autumn . We went in the summer and got eaten alive . We dress in full fatigues so ticks aren't a concern for us but shorts maybe questionable attire here . We will revisit this gem in the fall , cheers . K
Last time we were on this trail you couldn't get past Braemar Sideroad heading north to Hickson . I battled my way all the way to Hickson but it was a hard go even for a solder . Although the trail is not owned by adjacent properties they have taken over . One farmer even blasted one of the beautiful bridge abutments to smithereens . I made it but good luck . K
