paved main trail, a couple unpaved trails that weave in and out. great sights to take a break at (the fish ladder) also two free parking lots, and a giant staircase for runners. easy for small kids, no crazy slopes, and a parkette on one of the exits. good for biking too.

easy and very clean, good job Sudbury!!

No parking would miss it if following gps...
Definitely not what I thought when reading trail...

So, you work in a high-performance academic health care organization and you get half an hour for lunch between otherwise back-to-back client engagements and meetings. Just enough time for a quick nature walk. See a loon, a monarch on milkweed, a mink, or a school of perch suspended off a weed bed, and you're recharged for the afternoon. These two trails represent any-day / everyday life in Sudbury to me. You may not choose to visit Sudbury on the basis of these two trails, but you very well might decide to live here because of them.

This is a nice and easy walk through the trees. The squirrels are aggressive and follow you for food. The chickadees and nuthatches will land on your hands even if you don’t have any food.

A beautiful walking trail along the river/Creek. There is an abundance of bird life, apparently coyotes but I've not had the pleasure of seeing one. It is a heavily cycled trail and folks go fast even though it's narrow and rarely warn walkers of their approach so stay alert.

Nice stroll, not many people.

very nice trail alot of benches to sit.

started at brickworks and headed up to mount pleasant where path is paved and flat (i.e. many families and strollers). coming back down through balfour park is not stroller friendly at all for about 1km, then there is a split, where a paved trail can be rejoined.

Great local path but very busy. Rarely get more than 2mins without other people. Lots of bird watching

A great trail for walking, well maintained

This is a perfect getaway close to downtown, both for walking and jogging, and with a bit of detour also for biking.

Lovely trail, solid footing with wide path. Great for walking dogs and easy for children

The stairs by loblaws are quite numerous and the wood can get quite slippery but it’s a pleasant walk. The parking at loblaws makes things very convenient.

This is a beautiful hike, full of many wonderful surprises each visit. The wooded area has taken a drastic hit from Mother Nature late 2017 a microburst passed through the mud lake area causing sever tree devastation. Several trees were up rooted snapped off and the NCC has been busy trying to restore and reforest the area. Mud lake is a national treasure a small forest in the city.
Many people enjoy the area but several people neglect the NO DOG Signs! This is a nature reserve please respect and adhere to the posted rules NO DOGS and be respectful towards the creatures that call mud lake home.

I visit this trail every couple of days on my morning walk. It is great watching it through the seasons. Please note that the "dogs on leash" description is incorrect. Dogs are not permitted at Mud Lake with the exception of the part of the trail north of Cassels Street.

Single track trail for novice to advanced mtb riders. However, there are some sections that need maintenance with fallen trees obstructing the path. The east side of the river is rideable for the most part whereas the west side is more of a hiking trail. This was my experience of the Etobicoke Creek Trail from the Queensway to Dundas East side https://youtu.be/KvvNNMdujb8

Easy walking trail with family. Sometimes with confusing paths, dead-ends.

Pretty view, but slightly crowded on weekends. Not all pavement is smooth but it’s a flat, easy long bike ride to do

Great hike!

Easy path for walks, roller blading, bike riding or running. We often run this path while training with the Couch to 5K app.
