A very snowy hike today in hiking shoes, very glad I was wearing smart wool hiking socks.

Nov 3rd Hike. 6-8” of fresh wet snow. Make sure you have good waterproof boots. Low spots have water in them as it hasn’t frozen yet. A few overgrown areas, but nothing you can’t get by. Nice forest hike.

Started at the visitor center and did the loop up Beaver creek and came down the Horeshoe canyon trail. Relaxing and beautiful space.

Really great place. Highly recomend it.

a lovely trail through forest. unfortunately the trail ends at the gravel road so it isn't a true distance. I took the gravel road to the lake which was lovely but entered many cow pastures and cows blocking the trails.

Beautiful, well kept trail. Gorgeous in fall with all the colours and some wildflowers. Great for dogs. We saw no one at all. Very peaceful, quiet and serene. Trail ends at the gravel road that we followed to the lovely Spruce Coulee.

The photos from Jeffrey Glen are from another trail. There are no badlands/hoo doos here which was very misleading for me. It’s a pretty basic trail that’s good if ur in the area but not worth the 3 hour drive that I did today to get here.

Awsome trail with some great ups and downs some small bridges along the way. Would do it again forsure

Good, easy hike. Ran into a moose close to the trail but it seemed to be comfortable around humans given the hike is close to the campgrounds.

Great hike, lots of forest and well-maintained. As other reviewers have noted the trail is closed off near the end. Gravel road to campground takes you to the end for a scenic view. Very, peaceful with lots of wildlife in the morning.

Trail was a good hike but none of the marked trials match this one so it is quite difficult to follow.

nice & gentle hills on a well marked trail.

This a portion of our trail. We started in at Reesor Lake. We followed the trail through the campground only to find the trail up to Bull Trout Road closed, no closures posted on the provincial park site. We hiked up the gravel road to reconnect to the trail. It was a relief to see a nicely maintained trail. From Bull Trout Road to the Rodeo Grounds it’s rolling hills, but the down hill portions are longer. A nice relief at the end of my run.

Good trail. Please be aware of the local wildlife.

awesome on the way up but on way down a fawn wash dead on path. remember to watch for cougars

Trail begins on a gravel pathway that is actually an intermediate cross-country ski trail in the winter. It soon opens up into a vast, green meadow before you head into the forest for a moderately up/downhill trek on a pine-needle-blanketed, dirt trail, which gives way to tall grass and wildflowers throughput. The trail is well marked until you reach the 8km point, which drops you off on the gravel road to the Spruce Coulee Campground. We crossed the road according to the map, which showed a continuation of the trail to the campground, but the sign said “trail closed”. Rather disappointed, we decided to continue to the campground on the gravel road. It’s quite a steep decline, but manageable. The campground did not disappoint, with gorgeous views of the reservoir. The water was calm and looked like glass and contained lots of little schools of minnows. The trek back up the dirt road was challenging, especially in the scorching sun, but we had lots of water with us and were just fine. There were lots of mosquitos on the way back, but we had bug spray and were not affected.

Nice little stroll with the family. Make sure you familiarize yourself on cougar safety. We had a little stalker, tagging along for a portion of the trail and got to hear the infamous cougar scream.

Nice little hike and worth doing if your in the area. Make sure to bring water!!!

Super lush and green with some muddy sections. Last half km down to the lake is stuck behind a Texas gate with no foot path to the side to pass on foot with.

Nice hike

Nice trek moderate

Went up Mitchell and down horseshoe this morning. Wish I would of had snowshoes! There's between 1 - 2 ft of snow on both trails and a few fallen trees trees blocking the path on Mitchell.

Great trail! My wife and I did this trail in beginning of April and the conditions were a little tough. There were snow in some parts and it was slippery in the end (most steep part). But it was amazing for us! We really love it!

Great hiking however make sure you start on the forest side and end coming down the Old Baldy side. Trail well maintained. The top has a nice spot for lunch.
