Nice trail with many route options. Easy to navigate & great for dogs! A few fallen trees over the path & beware of hidden roots. Also, paid parking ...

was really nice, all types of different terrains in a med length walk

Lovely trail. Many people walk their dogs and are very friendly. The river is very nice, got to see salmon along the way. However their are 2 bridges that are gone and your unable to follow the route indicated. Had to back track.

Started out on the blue trail heading north. Trail through a pine needle blanketed path was beautiful. Turned onto the red trail to follow the red trail along the river was great. The salmon are still running which was amazing. Then along the orange trail and more salmon. Just a great day.

Ganaraska East Forest B Loop

Great walking trail, but you need to follow along on your map with your phone or you will get lost

Excellent trail with beautiful scenery. Watch for lots of roots.

Ah! the billowing clouds of exhaust fumes and the roar of engines as motor dirt bikes and ATVs constantly speed past us. We won’t be hiking here again anytime soon.

Great trail with rest areas which are great for families and a picnic.

Very nice and well maintained. Part of it was washed out so it’s hard to complete whole trail without crossing a river, but it was doable.

Beautiful !

bridge out

Would be a good trail, but two bridges were out with no indication they were out until you’re standing at the river bank looking at the missing bridge and a sign saying “trail closed”. Would have been nice to have that info at the trail head. Otherwise a well groomed trail that I would call easy (with bridges) instead of moderate.

Beautiful day on the White Tail Deer trail today. The fall colours are coming and the sun through the yellow leaves was beautiful. Trail is well marked and not too hard. Takes about 10 minutes to get to the trail head.

My little dog and I hiked this yesterday - peaceful relaxed hike. Easy trail - not too long.

Free parking, trail maps at the trailhead. Easy trails, no hills at all. This time of year the trout are swimming up Wilmot creek, they're fun to watch. Downside is the smell from the fish who've died after spawning, but that's only on the trails along the creek. Well marked, picnic shelter near the trailhead - very easy to spend a few hours here!

I have gone on this trail 1000 times but today was different. My dog came home with huge hives all over him. He WAS off leash but stayed close to me on the path, and never in the woods. Beware to any dog owners as I know many people who let there dogs off leash here. 2 needles, and 2 weeks worth of take home pills he will be ok. Stay on the path bottom line.

Great trails for off-roading in my Tacoma. Only a few technical sections but still lots if fun and manageable with stock suspension and decent A/T tires.

Incredible trails, where GPS is necessary to get back out. Ran the B & C loops with an additional extension onto the Millbrook Trail. So beautiful!

We live fairly close to this trail and use it frequently to get a few hours of good solid exercise. A good place to walk dogs (supposed to be on leash.) It is in the forest, so no good views, but still a nice outing. well maintained and not challenging but you have to watch out for tree roots. Also used by mountain bikers

Great little trail for a quick afternoon walk My new favorite for trail within half hour of Oshawa

Very clean trail! Well maintained, no garbage on the trail♥️. Our dogs loved it.

Great little trail. Saw dozens and dozens of monarchs resting on their way south for the winter. Kids loved it! A lot of red ants on the first half of the trail. They were quick to climb up our shoes if we stood still for long, FYI, keep moving!
