Nice short rugged hike. The the orange flagging at the lower trailhead on Shore Drive now leads down to Admiral's Cove on the Basin with some nice rocky perches to look across the Basin. The uphill trail is harder to spot. The upper trailhead offf Snowy Owl has more parking spots. It seems to get a fair bit of night time use by teenager party lovers so the first lookoff at Eagle's Nest has a lot of grafitti and garbage. This tapers off and the rest of the trail was unspoiled - very little garbage.

Short but sweet

Great hike and really close to the city

Wicked hike. Moderate to difficult terrain. Lots of steep climbs on a well-marked trail. Took us about two hours at a relatively quick pace and two short breaks.

there are two ways to enter this trail, you can enter at the sign on shore drive or take a few side streets up the hill and get in by a sign there at a small dead-end road branching off the street, there are usually cars here so it makes it easier to find. this entryway is best for short trips just to see the view. before you get to the view there is a small path that goes down beneath the cliff that leads into a more open space with the best view of bedford. highly recommend going down this path

Love bringing my dog here. Plenty of little areas to explore plus swimming in the summer. I stay away from the human beach.

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.

It's ok for a park close to a busy highway it sound like cars and it's better than walking on a sidewalk in the town.

Nice trails but I'm not sure I was in the correct spot as I couldn't find trail markings. It looks like there's a lot of little trails throughout and there's and off leash dog section too. Definitely going back to explore more!

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.

Easy walking trail in the city. Don't miss the heart shaped pond near the parking lot at the entrance to the trail. Almost always see deer on this trail along with birds and squirrels. It is crusher dust paths so easy to push a stroller too!

A lesser known cousin to Point Pleasant Park. Historic and naturally beautiful in many of the same ways. An oasis of nature in the city.
