Got to run with the dog off leash !

Once we reached the trail it easy enough to follow. Lake was pretty. We parked at Maskwa and walked in from there. We relied on our GPS doing it this way and added 2km to our hike. Also got to see Charlies Lake by taking this route.

Very technical, but no markings!

Make sure you go to the look off part very nice view

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.

Was a bit confusing to navigate at first because you need to connect to another trail before reaching Fox Head Trail. There were some orange spray paintings and some signs here and there to guide you though! We kept going where it said Fox Lake, and didn't check out the Look off part, which I now regret! A few other trails all interconnect so you can choose a shorter or longer trail. The route we took to and from Colins Rd was about an hour and 15 mins. Again, we may not have gotten the whole experience. Nice area though close to the city :)

Beautiful trail, but no marking!

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.

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

This is a heavily used trail by runners, bikers, walkers, and dog walkers. There is a lesser known loop trail( Halifax Mainland Commons Marsh Trail) that branches off this trail that is a nice walk through the woods for an added 1-1.5km. I use this trail several times a week and enjoy the walk every time.

A small trail system great for a quick getaway, or a popular stop to bird watch.

A dog's heaven! Lots of water and plenty of off leash areas. Very easy hike, but very icy in the winter. The trail connects to the trans Canada trail!
