Awesome trail! First section has a great view of the lake with trails wide enough for multiple people to hike/bike along. Pretty easy elevation changes that get your heart pumping a bit. This is a great trail to get a few miles in when you don't have all day! I would definitely recommend it to beginners and experienced hikers alike.
Have been riding the 6 mile bike path around Stoney for years. It's always a challenge with its inclines. Give you a great work out. Great scenery I usually end up biking into the beach areas and maybe a picnic area off path. Went this winter for a walk around. Such a beautiful metropark. Can not go there enough.

I love the mountain bike/hiking trails at Stoney Creek Metro Park. It is a great way to see wildlife and get in shape. If you are lucky you will see an owl, which is a bonus. Just remember to walk facing the bikers and move over to give them room to pass you. Overall this is my favorite place to hike locally.
Kayaking is what we like to do here. Smaller more maneuverable. Gets you into places you can't get with a canoe. Beautiful lake, you can swim in it without getting sick, unlike some metro parks. And they jabber nice easy hiking trails as well. Would be 5 stars if could take my dog anywhere beside Cpl small trails of paved paths.
