Awesome trails. Lots of different routes available. Challenging enough on certain areas and chill on others. The dog and girlfriend loved it and it’s very picturesque (I am a photographer). 5/5!

Beautiful trail with shaded trees. Got to see birds squirrels chipmunks but definitely not moderate. Should have been rated easy and there was almost no elevation

A great spot to walk along a beautiful lake full of all kinds of bird species. I took one star off because there is so much bird guano and dog poop everywhere on the trail. It felt like I was playing hopscotch the whole trail, trying not to step in dung.

A good urban path: can make it slightly more challenging if you take one of the offshoot paths from the main trail.

Have hiked this loop twice now. It's a nice hike for a lazy afternoon when you want something to do but don't have hours to spend. Although some sections are challenging when wet, the trail itself is not very long, so the easy rating makes sense to me. This is definitely a hiking trail, however - not a walking trail.

Finally, I am not sure why All Trails lists this trail as "no dogs" - there is a sign at the start of the trail that literally states dogs are allowed but must be kept on leash.

This trail was not easy. Maybe moderate in good conditions. My small children handled themselves very well considering this was quite intense. Very muddy due to intense rain recently. We had to cross a small river on a very small log and had to slide down a very steep mud incline. I would not take my small children again. This trail should be labeled moderate. If this is easy - I’m not sure I want to see what moderate is!!

Peaceful path, lovely river views and a great way to see some nature inside the city. Ran into very few other people - but may have to chalk that up taking a mid afternoon hike on a weekday.

hike with your kids , Or dog. My 4 year old loved it.

The side along Emily Murphy Park is nice. The north side is just a walking path, it’s nice but loud. Groat road bridge is also under going construction right now, still walkable though.

Some areas that were quite challenging when dry but would be very hard if wet. The bridge that was out seems to have been replaced.

very interesting place. Feels like you are in the mountains.

paved trail, prefer dirt and a ton of bikes.

Great walk easy and not busy!!

Easy to wail, beautiful river and DT view if you walk to the university side.

did this trail as part of a 5 k fun run not bad roads are paved.

Great to hear the birds chirping

Well maintained paths, great for a run.

A lovely walk in north Edmonton with lots of birds to watch. It takes about 30 min to walk around at a medium pace.

It can be quite busy with strollers on nice days but very approachable for families.

Great weekend trail

Wide trail with a few bridges. Path was dry and in good shape

Beautiful in All Seasons.

Near heavy traffic on the north side of the river and the south side of the river was covered in ice and snow. Trail won't be clear until mid May/early June.

The access to stairs was excellent!

Great trail! I like how it loops around back to where you start. You can get so close to the river, it’s a very scenic and easy walk!

Walked this trail in the winter. Was awesome mostly packed snow some icy spots. Lots to see, didn't feel like I was in the middle of a big city, could barely hear the traffic, I was the only person on the trail, I walked slow and enjoyed the peace.

It’s a nice trail! The majority of the trail was not actually a paved road/trail so it wasn’t as enjoyable going on just a snow path, it made it icier than normal and harder to walk but beautiful scenery!

cant go during winter

A beautiful unexpected bit of country side. A good dog walk for our 4 month old Goldie. Freezing weather didn’t put us off and luckily the sun was shining.
At the end of the trail are some beautiful houses to lust after too.

A good mix of terrain: steep in some parts with flat ground in others. A spectacular view at the top of the hill and a nice walk through the forest at the bottom.

Enough people that it doesn't feel isolated, but not too busy.

I'll definitely be coming back!

Most of the trail was washed out so it is great for a .5km walk in and then .5km back out on the same path.
