Great to hear the birds chirping

Well maintained paths, great for a run.

Great trail nice for the dogs to go for a swim as well

I love this park and so does my dog! Easy trail!

Great weekend trail

Great trail, can be confusing with other intersections but this app helped. Had a great day out starting our conditioning for future hikes. Good for families, dogs, kids, bikes, etc

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

Beautiful in All Seasons.

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.

Awesome trail! Definitely will enjoy it more often

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!

love this trail just did it for the first time and will drive across the city to do it again.

Beautiful especially in October . Surrounded with trees, quiet and peaceful!

This trail would have made 5 stars for the scenery and level of walk (for a very overweight beginer to walking for weightloss and health). But the stench is soooo horrific at times on the trail that I will not be coming back.

lots of nice parts to this hike.

Decent trail. I would probably mark it moderate vs "easy". Has a bridge that is blown out half way through making it difficult if you have any younger children with you. Otherwise a great way to spend an hr!

My 8 year old son and I did this trail and it was pretty nice. In just under an hour we were finished. Nice scenery and a few wildlife sightings made for a great time. However, I would stay away from it during or after it rains as there were some decents that were clay and could get pretty tricky to avoid.

This hike was awesome. So beautiful with different paths to take. The only thing that was not enjoyable was the sewer smell in 2 areas. Will walk this again.

good hike with off leash area along the river

This city hike took about an hour and a half with dependent on tow. On this particular day, there was a lot of people on the trails. The early yellow leaves were pretty but surprising to see so early. Not too many water views and lookouts. And a good portion had too much construction going on. I liked going through the different areas whether a dark forest, an open meadow, a hill with tall grass or some river side trails.

Good trail for the whole family(dog too). No matter which way you go there is going to be a climb uphill.

Great in city trail. You really feel like you're not near civilization, nice wooded paths. Make sure you have on good shoes. Trail can be a bit tricky to follow at points and a bridge was out but passable. Would be tricky in or just after a rain, would be quite muddy and the hills slippery.

Nice easy loop. Be ready for a bit of an uphill climb at the end though.

Beautiful views of the river valley, nice climb down and back up .

So pretty! This hike took about 4 hours with some stops for eating, pictures and one pitstop. Many areas on the trail had puddles from the morning rain this day, but still very walkable. There is a fork in the path towards the end where the signage is not very clear as to where each directions leads (if you`ve never been that way before). A trail map at this point would have offered me the choice to go further. If there also had been more places for washrooms, I`d give this a 5 star. Otherwise the trail was active with many birds and squirrels.

One of my favourite trails. Good view of the city, but still feels like you're in nature. Great for walking dogs, lots of places for them to put their feet in the river

Love bringing my dogs here! It's the perfect sized loop, they get to run and play and socialize with other dogs. I have met some very nice people here as well. I have seen a few swans here too, as well a variety of other birds and occasionally a beaver or two. There's also a place where I always see people fishing, which is kinda neat.
