Aug 28 2019 Fun little hike. Good for kids (mine are 5 & 7). Lots of scenic opportunities and wildlife sighting. Nice variety of terrain to move through as well. Trail is well marked and easy to follow. Late in the summer the blueberries are just EVERYWHERE. We feasted on them as we walked. Good time.

Excellent hike. It is quite a work out for your legs due to uneven ground of rocks and roots. The falls at the end was worth it and a great way to rest by enjoying the view.

A must-do if you're in the area! This was a wonderful trail. Moderate is a good rating - it's not a trail for complainers or people with bad ankles. the trail terrain is split between easy stretches of shield and rambling tree root. It's a good one for most people - a bit of a challenge for newbies, straightforward for more advanced hikers and the end with a stop at the rapids is worth it for all. There was one small scramble area right before you head down to the rapids. One bit of advice: we went on the Saturday of August long weekend. we started the train at 10:30am and didn't see many people on the way in or at the rapids, but did see a lot of people on the way out. Start the trail before 10am if you want the space to yourself!

Nice trail but very rooty and rocky so I don't think small kids would enjoy it. Nice view of the river (small falls) at the end. You can also view the river along the way if you go off the path at a few spots.

Beautiful trail, you will come across people but it's worth it. When you get to the falls take a moment to realize how much of Canada's history has taken place there.

Beautiful trail, there are lots of tree roots and the leaves can make things a little slippery so watch where you’re going.

nice hike with some good views points. Easy for everyone to complete. The boardwalk had a small flooded part so we shimminy along the handrails. Also well marked hike. When you head out to the lookout tower it is a bit more difficult to see the markers so keep a sharp eye out

Despite being promised waterfalls, but presented with a technicality (the “falls” are teeny tiny), the views are absolutely stunning. Beautiful spot at the “falls” to dip your feet in. The cliff face was my favourite part. Trail itself is easy with some steep parts but very manageable. Lots of roots so watch your step! I would also visit the big green bridge behind the discovery centre - gorgeous views.

Beautiful and peaceful trail. Came here with my dog in mid-May before the park was open for the season. Very wet trail in the spring from all the melting snow, so definitely wear boots! The falls are a great place for a picnic.

Falls were very small. Onaping falls in Sudbury is much better!

Good trail. Saw some turtles. Has a beautiful lookout. Many picnic tables to eat before the short hike.

It’s a really nice trail, although not really well maintained. If bringing dogs, ensure to bring plenty of water because there is only a little pond that does not look that great to drink. Bring lots of bug spray as there are horseflies and deer flies.

I sadly didn't get too far before I sprained my ankle but there was excellent scenery from what I did see. Trail wasn't marked well but planning on going back and trying again when it's cooler.

Really nice trail. A few challenges for this older hiker. But with poles not a problem

Hiked this trail in late October and the fall colours were beautiful! There weren’t too many other people that we crossed paths with and the scenery was amazing!

Very easy and travelled trail. Busy with tourists, but beautiful nonetheless.

Loved it! Beautiful views, hike was not too easy but not too hard. The trail is not marked well and can be hard to see. Loved the idea of it being partly boardwalk and smooth pathway for wheelchairs, walkers, etc. So that everyone has the opportunity to learn about and enjoy nature. There are little education posts along the path to educate you about the local flora and fauna.
