So beautiful!

This trail has a few spots of rough terrain, super easy to walk, clear trail markers all around the lake. Lake is gorgeous and many places to get the perfect pictures.

We'll marked trails. Snowshoes respect the ski track.

Very good location to see Rock Wrens. The landscape sometimes feels other-worldly, or moonscape perhaps, but with some semi-familiar plant life to keep some connection with Earth

the trail starts away from the naming sign ( continue down 12th line to the green sign for 3332 12th line). initially, there is an uphill slog that makes you wonder about terrain, but you must come down gradually as you make the loop. to the left is the well traversed uphill where you will eventually ramble below a few fallen trees. nothing crazy, but you need to be reasonably mobile. there are a few fallen trees to the right from the entrance loop (or off the finish if you go left). I got lucky and was mostly able to follow a snowmobile/Nordic ski track. it was just near the finish where a large tree had fallen that I lost track of other's tracks. if you're headed here soon take long snow pants as the snow is deep (especially where it hasn't been trodden over). fabulous trail with beautiful tall pine. at the top of the initial climb there is a great view to both left and right where the terrain drops away.

We just snowshoed the full loop. It took us 4.5 hours to do. The first half wasn’t groomed yet so it was a bit harder, but the second half was groomed and it made it easier going. The scenery is awesome and it was an enjoyable time.

Great variety and beautiful winter terrain

Really good trail. Peaceful in winter. I am definitely going to return to either cross country ski or cycle in the spring/fall.

Great trail.

This was a great ride and a wonderful trail. Also some spots along it said it was equestrian, which I suggested an edit with. This is the third trail i've tried in the area and now my favorite.

we started at HWY 7, the trail was closed at the 407 bridge (I think) there were signs up saying use at own risk. We did, went down to Whitevail and back, its bit a not a bad trail to walk, the trails are well marked. the weather wasn't the greatest, damp and foggy so we only seen 1 other pair of hikers on the trail. There wasn't that much took look at other then dead bent trees from the ice storm a few years ago.Going to start at Whitevail and head south next time and eventually finish the whole trail

I love this place!

Nice hike, can be made much longer if you add in some of the Bruce Trail side trails. Beautiful scenery and pretty level ground throughout. Would rate this ‘easy’ for any type of regular hiker. Dogs loved it and there is parking on site! $6.75 entrance fee.

Nice trail, there was a few people doing the trail on a Monday. Snowshoers, cross country skiers, mountain biking and hikers.
There's snow but the trail it's easy to follow. We didn't use snowshoes or cleats, our hiking boots where enough for the this snowy trail.

Mount Thom is nice. View is good. Some steeper sections. I’m not a fan of undulating trails. I’d sooner do all up ... so the return is all down, but that’s my preference. Path is clear and wide enough. Easy to find and easy to park. Bathroom at sylvan drive trailhead.

The best hike I’ve ever done. Even better, it ends with food, and delicious food at that! I’d do this trail a hundred times over.

Good hike and bike combo. The views to the east are incredible as well to west to the Rockies.

Falls are worth the trip. Bruce trail sections are fun.

Liked it alot. So many trails to explore. Nice creeks that will be nice to chill by in the warm months.
