Great hike. Good trail. Nice views. A few muddy spots but nothing too bad. Would do this trail again.

Great trail, still pretty wet in places. We mush of gotten on and off our bikes 30+ times to get through bogs and climb over fallen trees.

Not a great one when it's still damp out. About 1km in, we ran into a puddle we couldn't get around without wading through. Considering how thick the mosquitos were, we decided to turn back & try another trail.

A great trail for biking on Mother's Day.

This hike was a pleasant surprise - wide open trails, plenty of scenery, very pretty setting and then some decent elevation half way thru the hike. Definitely want to do this one counterclockwise. I would do this hike again and again - great early spring hike!

Great, easy trail. Gentle terrain and lots to see!

Short, easy hike to an incredible river crossing where the 20-yard-wide river rips through a slot canyon at high speed - terrifying to be close to the edge, as many people wander pretty close to the river off the main trail. Stay on the bridge and it's a beautiful experience showing the raw power of nature.

Trail was in good condition for the time of year. Soggy with a few muddy stretches. Nothing that couldn't be avoided by sticking to the very edge of the trail though. I saw a partridge, a rabbit, hundreds of frogs (they were mating and the sound was near deafening!), bison (off in the distance) and butterflies. I was disappointed to find that the trail was actually only 4.4 km (using the AllTrails app from the outhouses at the Tawayik picnic area, out around the loop, and back. Not sure how it is listed as a 7.6 km loop here, even the Parks Canada site only lists is as a 5 km loop. I would consider this to be more of an easy trail than a moderate one. I took my time, stopped to enjoy the sites, and it still only took me 1 hour and 2 minutes.
