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!

Great walk. Was super icy. Stop at the bridge and walk in to the falls there. We keep right on going because the map told us to.

Check what kind of hike you're in for! Went in Feb and the entire road was slippery ice. Maybe bring your skates!

Great terrain. Good sized loop for an afternoon hike.

Great trail, great work-out! Well marked and very clean.

Some newly felled trees across trail on West side of Ash Lake, otherwise in great shape this spring.

nice and easy walk

Nice trail system and that has crushed gravel, good for running with several small hills. Close to the road so you hear a lot of traffic, also a lot of dog droppings..

Local, the kids love it. Peaceful Beautiful Lake !

Good trail and not super well marked which is fun, kind of close to the highway so you can hear the cars pretty much into the loop. only downside though

Pretty easy trail.

Well marked trail. Nice mix of terrains too. It can get a bit swampy in the lower parts.

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

on Shubie Park Trail

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.

Not a challenging hike, but you may well get the lake to yourself. Which is pretty magical.

Good any time of the year

Great trail. Well marked!

one of my favorites at keji! always so beautiful! perfect way to spend a crisp fall morning

Nice easy hike in the woods. There are some boardwalks throughout and some educational panels with information on different habitats/ trees/ landscapes you'll see. Great colours in the fall with all the leaves falling!

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.

Nice in the fall. Ash Lake is quiet and lovely. It's really good to record and compare with the map as the trails can be a little faint at times. There are tapes and paint at tricky spots though plus some signs. I didn't go the Hobson's Lake route but picked a different way in and back.

wonderful place!

Pretty good hike, no overly difficult areas. Although some areas it was difficult to find the trail markings (green paint on trees) since it had faded over time. Took around two hours to just do the Charlies Lake Loop, we decided against connecting to the Maskwa Loop. Only took over an hour of walking, since we went with a dog who loved to take breaks to find a nice swimming spot (which there were a few along the way). Will definitely go again.

Great little trail in residential Dartmouth. Nice beach and playground before entering the trail. Only takes about 25-30 minutes to walk both ways. Love taking my dog here for quick after-work walks.
