Great, easy, enjoyable gravel trail for a young family to enjoy. Once you get to the south end of the trail, turn left on the gravel road and head to the railway tracks, maybe you’ll get to see a passing trail.

Nice trail for the first part. Towards the far end the vegetation gets thick and there are some muddy parts so progress slows. There are some beautiful views of Mud Lake and wetlands. Definitely worth exploring!

A pretty easy ride, I did about a 9 mile loop. The old train bridge was fun to cross.

Wonderful dog walk. Great for visitors like us

super good to bike or to walk up the stairs.

Very disappointed that dogs are not allowed.

A great short nature walk/hike right in downtown Calgary.

Lots of bikers but overall good hiking trail - nothing too extravagant but overall enjoyable

I love the Boardwalk. The walking surface is well maintained, the views are wonderful and the ambiance is terrific. It’s the best place to spend a couple of hours walking.

I’d been looking forward to this for so long and it sadly missed the mark by a mile. It’s a boring walk along an old road. No where to sit and rest. You get practically run over by bikes at every turn. Definitely not worth it.

Great, well maintained and interesting trail. Perfect for a young family. The tree carvings were fun to find too. Quite a few families on the trail.

Great views, sculptures and gardens. Great short hike.

Great for being right in the city.

Pain and basic. Well kept.

Always a gorgeous walk. Sunny or stormy it’s worth the walk.

I did not enjoy this walking trail. Lots of construction going on, and by waterfront they mean you are walking along a dirty bog..smelly and unenjoyable.

Kept clean, nice view, we walk the Boardwalk frequently.

This trail is clearly one of the best places to look for birds in Ottawa! Unfortunately, the forest is being cut down.

Perfect trail to use as alternative to urban hiking. Water views are very nice and historical significance to the area adds to appeal.

Good paved trail. Perfect for an easy 5k without real elevation. Large enough not to have to mind the bikes too much.

Beautiful trail in the middle of the city!

Great views from the lookout. A truly quintessential Montreal walking trail.

Beautiful location, especially in the early morning for the sunrise and seeing the cruise liners coming the Halifax port. Dog Friendly off leash before 9am I believe. Trails are well groomed and water view on three sides of the park.

Very interesting place in Quebec. I was gratefully surprised watching people from all ages getting up and down the stairs. I believe there is like a tournament in Quebec City about climbing stairs. There are many of then in the city. This one is the longest. And it is a historical place.

Nice loop for a trail run, but it’s clear that the city has been neglecting the park; there is a lot of garbage along the trail with some areas that feel like hurdles. Also, no one has been restocking the hand sanitizer in the restroom.

A easy trail. However it was enjoyable.
