Danger Notice: Cliff-side location - May not be suitable for families with children.

The trek along the cliffs was nice but surprisingly buggy on October 1. Once we turned inland on the Snakefoot trail the scenery became underwhelming. It was easy to traverse and fine for children and older hikers. Hiking boots were still a good idea in a few wet spots.

Nice easy trail for the kids. Taught them about the invasive species there that seems to be choking out everything. Didn't really see or hear birds the entire walk though..

Flat, comfortable walk. The breeze off the lake was lovely, and the rocky views were gorgeous. Definitely a trail I'll bring my dogs back to walk on many times.

Easy stroll along the Ontario coast line. Perfect for young kids, dogs, or even older folks who don't get around so well.

We love this state park. They have multiple trails, so you can do longer or shorter trips. The view from the picnic area is amazing!! Seeing the pillboxes along the trail was also a treat to see.

Perfect evening hike. This is my go to spot for sunsets. The area is nicely taken care of and really easy to walk for all ages. I recommend taking Snakefoot trail from the parking area out to the first picnic spot.

Snakefoot trail was AMAZING!!!!

Hiked the Snakefoot trail (approx. 4.5 miles) and it was stunning. Beautiful hike along the lake and then through a meadow. Trails are taken care of and are marked well. Dog & family friendly. High recommend it!

Pretty good hike. I liked the Visitor Center a lot. Great little history of Mr. Wehle. The trail is well maintained, very easy hike. Don't understand why it's labeled as Moderate. Got to hike along the cliff rocks overlooking Lake Ontario, which was awesome. Also great area for the avid bird watchers. Only gripe I had were the dog owners not picking up the manure at the beginning of the trail.

Park is very well kept and awesome view of Lake Ontario. Trails are not difficult and would be great for kids.

Great place with different trails. The views of the cliffs along Lake Ontario are great. There are great places along the trails to swim, and is very dog friendly.

This trail is good for a nice walk, and the views for the cliffs are great. :)

It's amazing place about Robert G Wehle state park. He owned this property of 1,067 acres and donated to DCE. Wonderful place for dogs to walk on trails. Will go there again.

Excellent trail. Unfortunately this is a testament to the necessity to take care of your environment and not let plants do plant things. Make sure you stop and read the information booth at the main entrance to the park. There is a highly invasive plant species that has taken over the park and some side trails you only see that vine and dying trees it is attacking. Then go back to your favorite local trail and watch for this vine, it is encroaching more places than you would hope.

My son and I really enjoyed bike riding this trail. We stopped at a picnic table along the way and had lunch with a beautiful view of Lake Ontario.
