on Old Quarry Trail

I like this trail. Sometimes alot of people walking with can be a bit of a pain when biking. But trails sprouting off of this one are alot of fun.

A lot of good memories created on this trail. We walked it mid-April every year to mark my ex’s birthday, in-laws and babies to big kids all managed the hills. Feeding chickadees and spotting turtles sunning themselves, skunk cabbage and marsh mallows, quiet reflective times and rowdier races. We always enjoyed it! Now I’m blissed, knowing my sons carry on the tradition with their children.

I’d been looking forward to this for so long and it sadly missed the mark by a mile. It’s a boring walk along an old road. No where to sit and rest. You get practically run over by bikes at every turn. Definitely not worth it.

Very buggy, had to jog a few parts because they were so bad! Trail was nice, fairly easy but could be a bit bumpy for a stroler. Also my car window got smashed while we were hiking and things were taken from my backseat so that really sucked, but the hike itself was nice.

Breathtaking views. Heavily forested trail.

beautiful trail!

Very beautiful trail. Be very careful of not getting lost though. The yellow trail does become confusing so we ended up bushwhacking to get back on track. I would recommend however!

47 degrees today but still a lovely walk!

Short and easy trail. The path was well maintained and was easy to access from the main road. I would recommend this hike for someone with kids and/or looking for a quick fix of nature.

It’s a very nice trail with a cool limestone kiln. The lookout wasn’t as good as the pictures made it seem but it was very pretty. If you move at a good clip the bugs are not much of a problem. The paths alternate between one person wide and uneven path to five people wide and wood chips which makes for interesting changes to the scenery. Would definitely go recommend.

Very pretty little trail, you can walk directly across top of falls to the other side. Neat old brick house remains.

Thought this was a great 45 minute trail walk for my husband, my shepherds, and me. We went in mid July. Seems like it is surrounded by wet lands so probably would be muddy in spring. There was one narrow spot close to a stagnant pond area so lots of mosquitoes at this part. We hurried through, but that was the only part of trail we didn't like. The rest had nice scenery with decent trail space under a canopy of trees. We went late morning on a hot Sunday and no one else was on the trail. Saw only 1 dog dropping left behind. There was some horse manure left on trail. Overall a nice trail.

Hazards - mosquitos, exposed tree roots on trails, and leave the toxic baneberries alone! Recommended especially in late May for wood warblers and forest flowers. Leave before 11 am to avoid the numerous off-lease dogs and their walkers. Despite these criticisms, it is a pleasant place for a nature stroll in summertime with opportunities to see turtles, frogs, birds. Pack your insect repellent!

The BTA does a great job of maintaining the trail. There are some lengthy sections without access to water so plan ahead if the weather is warm. I did only camping so it made for a couple of long days to reach the next campground. Started in Wharton then to Cape Croker to McKays Harbour to Reed's Dump to Mountain Trout Camp to Cypress Lake and finished off to Tobermory. Actual terminus of Bruce Trail another few meters past the GPS coordinates of this map but otherwise accurate when we hiked it.

This trail is an awesome day trail lots to see and you might even get to see a moose!

Perfect for kids. Not hilly, lots of variety in what you see. Places to sit every few hundred meters. Reasonable chance of seeing turtles or frogs. Signs explaining the environment every few hundred meters. Outhouse near the trail head. Picnic tables and a covered area not far from the trail head.

Lovely Trail!

Amazing trail. Did today (June 23 2018). Too many bugs and mosquitoes, but that made it really wild in all aspects. Quiet a bit of ups and downs with beautiful rock beds on the way. Most portion is marked in a yellow blazed trail.

GPS: I'd like to share a track from ViewRanger:http://my.viewranger.com/track/details/Nzg0MjcyMg==

Not a great trail to walk through, very muddy and too overgrown.

Not all tax-payers are dog owners and publicly-funded trails should reflect this.

Dull, too busy, it's just a walk along a road and sometimes you get smells from nearby industry.

Beautiful. Lovely place. Will definitely go back.

Great trail

Posted no trespassing but added signage for trail use after 3:00pm and weekends..
Pleasant walk with a large pond. Highway sounds do not have ale away f I’m the serenity of walking in the woods.

Did the whole jack pine trail in 52 min. Pretty well groomed and easy for all types of hikers, families included. Mosquitos are kind of aggressive near the boardwalk but if you move at a decent rate you should be fine. Nice trail

There are some trails here for walking but it’s mostly a paved road. It’s kind of boring as a walk (trail is closed right now due to debris) but it’s a really nice short bike ride out to the lighthouse. Some great views. This is all in full sun so dress appropriately and bring sunscreen.

Late March - very mucky wet trail until the river. The walk along the river follows ATV tracks. Some scenic parts to the walk but at this time of the year lots of flood plain debris to navigate around. We will try again mid April when some spring flowers emerge but before the hunters come out :)

Actually it’s not a difficult hiking trail. In the beginning the road maybe wet and difficult to go, but the rest is quite easy. Remember to park in the entrance of road, and in the end just go up on the hill, and you could dramatically find your car.
