Nohely R. on Esker Brook Nature Trail
Oh man let me tell you about this trail. I saw a review that said it was easy. So I decided to give it a try. I did all 3 trails. And for me (I'm out of shape) it was difficult. There were lots of medium and small hills. Trials are well kept. The scenery was beautiful. The birds chirping was peaceful.
Great walk with my kiddos! Saw some fantastic wildlife!! You can see something different every season which is really cool. My aunt (an environmental biologist) says spring is the best time! We sure enjoyed it!
