To all the dog walkers out there using Walter Bean Trail, came across Coyote Scat this afternoon, close to pioneer tower. The brush is really over grown in parts which of course is fabulous to our non domestic four legged friends.

hike this trail ever day. best trail in this area

Loved this trail! Well maintained and many different trails to choose between, depending how long of a walk you want:) we found a bunch of geocaches along the way too!

Great trail. Challenging with lots of up and down sections. Well marked and easy to stay on the trail. Will definitely be back.

Totally trashed right now - trees down everywhere, uncleared brush, impassable trail really:( Came here to go geocaching and all the geocaches have been bulldozed over!

took my mom for a bit of exercise. she loved the carvings. we did the boardwalk around the lake. super easy. very good route for those that have their mobility challenged.

Great area for exercise but I would say it’s moderate not easy. Just because there are so many steps and some double sized ones.
Tight edges in some places a little stressful when slippery due to weather and need to give way for in coming traffic to pass. I would recommend hiking shoes in this trail.
Some may find it challenging on the way down but consider this trail loops and double the work going up on the return.
Over all it’s a great area.

Followed the blue blazes in a short loop. Trail was quite muddy but was nice and close to the river. Took about one hour to get back to the car. Think I’ll try kayaking that section of the river next spring. Looks fast and fun.

It was a decent hike. Pretty short and easy.

There are two big hill to go up. The one with the wide steps is awkward to climb. Difficult if you are 86 years old.

Nice trail with amazing views!

This trail is really wonderful and great for stroller or wheelchair...there are only about 200meters soft surface which maybe hard for stroller and wheel chair, the remaining are great!

Easy trail as it is mostly flat. Lots of various trails this you can adjust how long you want to be out there. Trails and waypoints are well marked. Chickadees come easily to feed out of your hands, bring the kids. Do not however leave valuables in plain sight in your vehicle!

Walk, jog or take the dog. Easy, rewarding and enjoyable.

A relatively easy trail along the creek. Stairs leading up to where you can catch the side trail. Great look out points!

lovely trail. gem in the city.

Easy trail...fun to do in 2 or 3 hours!

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.

Beautiful trail. Clean and well marked. Will definitely come back again.

Short but sweet! Great views, beautiful forest and fun scrambles through the caves. Best quick hike in the area. If anyone is confused, this trail is referred to as the "Standing Rock and Caves" side trail in the Bruce Trail guide. "Singhampton Caves" is actually a larger loop that also contains this side trail.

Amazing gift to the community. Well marked and maintained trail system. Great views from the top of the bluff.

This is my go to trail, being minutes from my home. Ideal for walking, biking and inline skating in some areas. I've spotted many deer, hurons, egrets, cormorants, coyotes, rabbits, otters, beavers snapping turtles, toads and snakes over the years. Even in the winter, deer like to come out of the woods, so always have your camera ready. Photo opps galore.

I wanted to love this trail. We hiked it in early November, and it may as well have been early spring. There was mud and mucky stuff all the way around, and we probably had to veer around these very wet areas at least 50 times in the course of the hike. Also there were at least six trees down across the path. If the path were way drier, and clearer, it would have been a great. Beautiful views, but not worth it when it’s this wet.

Lots of people bring their dogs and let them off leash. It’s a great place to let puppies play!

Wide paths - great for talking with others/groups; hills to cause some exertion; mostly in forest - quiet and energizing

Magical moments of falling autumn leaves and mossy logs embedded in leafy carpets. Nice rolling pace gave nice diversity and bits of challenge. Lots of spin-off loops to extend and customize the kike like the "Dundas Valley Trail" combo in this app. It started off quiet and peaceful at 8 am, but got a bit busy and family-oriented by 11.
