amazing view. bring a beer to the top to enjoy the hard work. I suggest going up and down the same side. the windy road back down is easier but feels like it takes forever and not scenic at all.

beautifull view. but easy and sometimes croudy

a great spot to walk and see some historic forts, monuments etc. not overly challenging and good for running

bumped into this gem of a trail while hunting for some geocaches! I love these urban parks. beautiful!

This is a lovely trail for a good 5-7 hr hike, depending on your pace and number of stops. Is long but not particularly difficult for experienced hikers. There are a few nice rest stops at 3 waterfalls, the salmon river pools, and near Gully Lake. The trail is very well signed at intersections and with trail markers along the route. Highly recommended!

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 terrain. Good sized loop for an afternoon hike.

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

This is not a hike - an easy stroll is the pace but the end view is what people come for. Note that it is wheelchair accessible

I hiked this trail Saturday February 10, 2018 in the morning. I started around 8 am and it took about an hour to reach the end. There was a bit of snow at the beginning but none at the end. There was a lot of icy areas hidden with a dusting of snow. No animals were sited. I saw a few fresh coyotes and rabbits tracks on the path.

A oldie but a goodie !! Love watching the waves roll in since I was a little girl .

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

Simply Beautiful.

Pretty easy trail.

Very easy with wide paths. Nice waterfall too.

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

What a hoot ! Have you ever played 'snakes and ladders' ? The park keepers certainly have, the trail system is based on a paved path at the base of canyon with multiple sets of stairs going up the edges. Really cool. One set of steps called 'Jacob's Ladder' is outrageously long. Then there are waterfalls (many). For those of you who have read my other reviews you know I like to combine food, challenges and waterfalls. The food this time was a little spot in Truro called Bistro 22. The challenge was the stairs (even tired out my extremely fit wife). The Waterfalls, many and strongly visual. Enjoy !

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 trail was just ok, honestly. With so many beautiful views throughout this entire area, we had a hard time finding this crowded trail worth it. We prefer the lesser traveled trails in this park.

I hiked this morning, December 9, 2017.
It was great.I had the whole Trail to myself.
I heard a Coyote howling from a distance. The Gulf of St. Lawrence was so calm that the Magdelan Islands that belong to Quebec 40+ miles away were visible.
I was able to take 20 photos of the awesome view of the landscapes and one spruce grouse.
I did see a rabbit go by but he was too fast for my camera.

So pretty. Lots of little offshoot paths for great photo ops.

Ocean view was great lots of frogs and birds.

Good hike despite the rain and fog, Ran into two Bull Moose on the trail.

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

Good any time of the year
