Fell in love with this place . Beautiful view of the waterfall.

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!

Beautiful walk. Steps going down....not so bad. What goes down , must come up. Torture going up those stairs. But....my 80 year old father did it....so, it wasn’t to difficult.

Fun with the kids

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.

Good spot for a quick hike and beautiful waterfall

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.

Not overly used, poorly marked.

Great winter hike with stunning view! Made me say “wow” out loud coming out of the trees.

My wife and I where here in February, great hike! Super well kept and clean. Washrooms located at the entrance were open. Spectacular views!!

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

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

Beautiful trail - amazing for snowshoeing and a somewhat challenging hike. Entire loop is 10k.

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.


Great for easy access, ease of use, maintenance, and scenery.

beautiful walk and view

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..

Big payoff!

right where i live! beautiful views (depending which ones you choose) and over 30 km of different trails you can take, with some more challenging than others.

Could be marked a little better. Fortunately there was a pretty freshly laid snowmobile trail there for me to follow. Other than that, fantastic. Another gem in the heart of Nova Scotia.
