I walk this trail every weekday morning with a group of men and it is perfect for our group. The trails are kept in excellent shape and better yet the park keepers are a very friendly lot. We walk for an hour or so, then it is off to Tim's for social time. This fall there was a concerted effort to make the trails free of obstacles. So it should be quite ideal for skiing if we get snow that stays.

This is a great place for a pleasant walk. And the view...one of the best views of Downtown Halifax. The trail follows the harbor from start to finish. For a stretch the trail runs alongside an adjacent railroad track. Fortunately the trail planners built sturdy wood fences wherever the rail line and walking trail cross. With only one elevation change, the trails weaves and bobs through low vegetation, giving you a pleasant and short walk.

I took a hiking trail that divides off from the main pathway. The hiking trail isn't listed on the map but it's well used so not hard to get lost. There are lots of offshoot paths for variety. Went in the autumn which was beautiful, perfect temperature!

Great trail for all.

I have lived near Hemlock Ravine for 1 1/2 years. I love the peaceful nature of the park dearly and walk my dog there frequently. However, make note that there is only ONE off leash trail for dogs - Governor's Trail. I'm sure most dog walkers that come to the park don't know that or they don't care. My dog and I have had our share of scares and close calls with other dogs which are walking off leash in on leash areas. Very frustrating. And yes, there are people who don't pick up after their dogs or pick it up and leave the bag on the trail for someone else to take out. The peace and quiet I feel when I visit the park is slowly being eroded away by insensitive dog owners. I hope you enjoy your visit there as it is a lovely spot.

Really enjoyed this trail. Many obstacles that make it fun. It's important to be careful around some of the rock climbs but didn't have any issues navigating the trail. It's relatively short and has great scenery. I will surely do this one again.

In my opinion this is more of a biking trail. All paved and well maintained. Not much in regards to scenery. A few major road crossings take away from something a hiker may want to experience. I rated this 3 stars as a hiker but would probably give it 5 as a biker.

couldnt find the trail !

Walking, running, biking, It is hands down the best trail in all of Halifax. Beautiful scenery, friendly people, and nature. Amazing!

Great park at the end of the city. We walked from the cruise terminal, about 2K, and around the park. Even in the pouring rain there were joggers and folks walking dogs. Well marked paths. I was sorry we didn't have better weather.

makes me feel like the city is miles away

A great hike out to the lake. Great spot to take a picnic and spend some time by the lake.

Didn't manage to get for because of snow but will definitely go back

best dog park in town & my rating is based on that.

Good park for dog owners, if you are not a dog owner, it will probably feel a little too busy. you can find a lot better trails 20min outside of the city.

Excellent gentle ramble for all ages . Reasonably picturesque and perfect for loads of off leash dog walking. Brilliantly maintained trails here .

Watched the sunrise over the harbour. A great trail!

Pretty disappointing. It's primarily a dog park, the only good interesting spots in the park require you to go off trail, and there's not really much to see even when you do.

Dog owners that visit the park are also really disrespectful. They leave bags of dog crap everywhere, I saw a huge pile of dog crap bags next to one bench and bags strewn all over the place. Pretty gross.

Good dog walking park. Many friendly dogs and large grassy areas for them to chase each other and play. My dog loses his mine every time I tell him we are going to the park!
