Great for a nice afternoon stroll!

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

Love Shubie trail

Good and on the harder side and can make it shorter by just going to skull rock which is just off the trail!

Very quiet trail, usually only see about 2 or 3 people each time I go there. My dog loves it and there's a few areas that are just a huge field so I usually bring the brisbee!

Can get pretty windy near the water some days (if you choose to add on Poor's farm road to your hike) but it's beautiful!

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.

We went at a steady pace and completed the loop in 3 hours. It would be easy to spend a lot longer at all the look offs. Great views.

Super, lots of views and a good workout with ups and downs. Come prepared with boots, food and water. Did it on 7 October.

Mountain bike the double track, Easy to moderate but it get a technical and fun with the side single track you can jump off and on.

Trail description should include Spider Lake reference.

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 :)

The sign isn't joking when it says to budget 45min/km. Worth every minute, absolutely stunning views.

Great spot! Trail is clearly marked and easy to follow. Took about 3 hours to complete and says it's only 5.5 km

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.

We went to McNabs for an overnight camping trip and it was great! The water taxi picked us up in Eastern Passage and brought us to a beach on the island. We hiked the whole island and got to see many cool things (fort, battery, cannons). Highly recommend this trip :)

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.

makes me feel like the city is miles away

Fantastic! Strenuous climb worth it for the spectacular views. The trails are well signed and marked clearly with flags.

Great walk for humans and their furry companions! Suitable for older children. Close to the city. Costly Farm section not groomed, though the rest of the trails seem to be primarily gravel.

Bummer got all the way here and the trail head is off a private road. No where to park before this except a park then over a mile to hike to the start of the trail through a neighborhood. Not worth it. Decided to hike elsewhere.

Beautiful scenery, not overly busy, quite ! Trails aren't "perfect" and you can definitely get muddy. My four legged friend and I had a blast though

lovely trail, challenging in places with spectacular views. still snow in the forests in the vallies so be prepared for that. The "Cave" pass through was a pleasant surprise.
