Beautiful walk beside the river.. I have done it in December during snow which was really amazing. You can hike even after the trail if you want to, but make sure that you dnt get lost

Nice Christmas eve stroll with the dog

We love this trail as it is a lot less busy than the other trails in Sir Sanford Fleming Park. It is very woodsy and is a nice quiet loop with a bit of an incline. You likely wont see many people (if anyone) on this. Lots of other connecting trails you could pair this with. We love walking our dog on this trail.

Beautiful very short trail along the Norhwest Arm. Beautiful views of the Dingle Tower. A good trail for the whole family and dog friendly (on-leash). Lots of picnic tables and benches. Great spot. Lots of other connecting trails available.

Beautiful, it was pretty wet, but it’s December! Totally doable. Didn’t do the full loop, but was gorgeous even in the rain.

Went in mid- November. Trail still good but a bit muddy. Definitely need sturdy boots- lots of rocks and uneven terrain. Coastline views are spectacular. Well worth it.

Great views. Suggest to take two vehicles and park at each end so you don’t have to double back.

I am grateful to the commenter above who said that this trail is boring and you have to watch your feet at all times. It made me want to do this trail and I'm so glad I did! Incredible home with lots of puddle jumping and rock hopping with a fantastic payout at the end (or halfway marker of you do the loop). Beautiful and will definitely be back!

Great spot to get a hike in when pressed for time. The dogs love it and it is ready for use year round.

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

Gorgeous area to hike with dogs. Make sure you have a gps or map as it’s easy to get a little turned around in there.

Love these trails! Great for mountain biking, trail running, and hiking.

Great technical trails close to the city. Make sure to pay attention as trails are largely unmarked.

A gorgeous hike right on the ocean - highly recommended!

Very busy trail and easy to walk past the trailhead. Aside from that this is an easy trail for anyone to walk and the views are absolutely amazing. We saw seals wading in the surf the day we were there. There's lots to explore here so make sure you have a lot of time!

Nice trail, great views. Late Sept. there was very silent and for majority of the time I was the only human around.

I was assuming that there’s only one loop as the AllTrails say, but there are several forks along - check out the map on the trail. Thanks to it you can decide whether to have a long or a short loop.

Recommendable. Easy to find starting point and relatively well marked.

Awesome views. Took us about 3hrs to hike it! It is dog friendly but the trails can be steep and they are skinny trails.

definitely my favorite coastal trail with lots of elements, you will never get bored aha!

Very nice views

Nice trail, work up a good sweet!!

I went after a big rain so it was a little soupy close to the lakes but someone had put down logs to walk across in most parts and even made a makeshift bridge out of fallen branches. I recommend going for sure, more of a moderate to easy hike and the trail is well walked on and easy to follow

Loved the walk along alone Sheiling! Very serene with a babbling brook running in the lower portion of the walk.

some of the trail was very overgrown, although still visible.

I would recommend the trail to friends!

Nice little hike. We did several of these on our down days.

The waterfall and the bridge at the end are lovely but the hike there and back can be a little boring. You have to watch your feet pretty much all the time to avoid tripping.
