Very easy trail for the whole family. Mostly we cam to see the Dingle Tower. Beautiful views from atop the tower. Plenty of parking.

Excellent trail system for the whole family in the heart of the city! Plenty of parking but can be very busy. Washroom facilities located throughout the park. There's a rich military history to this park as well. Highly recommended!

It’s a good choice if u don’t want drive too far from downtown, especially suitable for daily exercise.

Great trail to walk if you need a getaway from the city within the city.

Nice views just prior to sunset

This is a nice pleasant, easy walk for all types of walkers! Some nice views of Halifax on route
Great for a leisurely ramble.

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

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.

Did this trail in January, there was a few inches of snow on the terrain almost the whole hike. Great views. The majority of it was repetitive steep climbs and descents for the length of it, we then hiked down and did the way back on the flat trail which was about another 7k. Took us about 7 hours total with lots of stops and slowed down by the snow and weather. Can be hard on the body, but a good challenge!

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.

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.

Great place for a walk. Easy trails. Lots of squirrels and birds. Lots of places to stop. Great place to go during any season.

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.

I've done many of the trails... North Granite Ridge as well as Admiral Lake, Gibraltar Rock and Bayer Lake Loops. It's a challenging trail system with some spectacular views of the area from numerous look offs along the trail.

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.
