This is very much a simple walking trail, nice for a daily walk with the dogs.

great time cant wait till next time

great place to go in the summer is even more beautiful in the winter , found the trail to high pond lookout was a challenge but worth it

This is a wonderful little trail! It is accessible year round and is very easy. For me, my favourite time to go is during the fall when the sun is low
..on the second half ,past the bridge, it feels like you're in fairy territory! Great green space.

Lovely, especially when you think of the natural and artistic history surrounding it. The views are pretty and the way to the bridge can be a little difficult but once you cross the trail is beautiful.

I wouldn't call this a trail by any means; it's a cycling/walking/jogging track. It does have a nice variety of inclines though, so if you're looking for a paved track while keeping an eye on your distance this is a good one.

I love this easy trail. All but the short section up to the look out is groomed and hardpacked. It is perfect for all ages and abilities and is easy to travel through in all seasons, mind you the wet seasons can show a little more mud.

very short walk to bad it wasn't extended longer.

beautiful view

Nice hard-packed chipped-stoned pathway. Great for cycling, walking, birding, nature walking etc. Nice viewing platform on the upper trail looking out over the marsh. Trail is completely washed out near the soccer field by the ski hill.

Short nature walk on a floating boardwalk through marshlands west of Science North. They have shortened the trail so that it doesn't go in as far anymore and now ends at the sportsfield. All the information plaques have also been removed. It's nice but not as great as when it first opened.

It's paved which is great for cycling, stollers, wheelchairs etc. Very few people for anyone looking for a quiet walk.

The trial is very overgrown and not well marked. We missed the turnoff from the main trail, then couldn't find our way across the swampy area, which had a deep stream winding through it. Will maybe try again in the fall.

Beautiful little trail that I had NO idea was even on my daily commute! Perfect for a hot day , short and sweet. ♡

Very happy with this trail. Nice hiking even with kids. Good exercise. Trail start not marked well though if your not familiar with the area.

We liked this trail, simple enough for the kids but trail wasn't marked very well. Slot of different ways to go and no signs posted. Good for cycling though.

Fairly simple. Close to highway unfortunately. Nice boardwalk

We did not follow the trail, went down river to the first big bend then back up through the trees on a path we found. Very nice place to snowshoe

Well kept walking or biking trails. Beautiful look out. Good work out if you climb the stairs a few times.

Short trail, beautiful views, up and down hill, rocky. Wear decent shoes. We saw many in flip flops which looked dangerous. Take your garbage with you please.

Very challenging trail, got a good workout in and got to experience such beauty

It was great! I didn't complete the trail the first time due to time constraints but I'm heading back today for some smooth bicycling and beautiful views. I highly recommend checking out this trail!

This treasure of a trail is located in the middle of a suburban neighborhood, but you would never know. As I took my first steps onto the boardwalk, I was greeted by a plethora of bird species, intense insect sounds and a beautiful view of Lily Creek and Robinson Lake. The hard-pack part of the trail goes through a small forest area with lots of blueberry patches and a tiny creek of crystal-clear water. The area was free of litter, well-maintained and for the most part, did not have any large rocks or protruding tree roots, which means a green light for someone with limited mobility. I only crossed paths with one man and three children. Before I walked there for the first time this morning, I honestly didn't expect much of it... The visit was very relaxing and satisfying.

The trail was nicely challenging; while the lookout point itself was easily accessible, its mixed terrain went from a rocky descent to the basin to winding , uneven paths - watch out for bulging tree roots! The section across the bridge has lots of steep inclinations, making for a nice cardio session. For the most part the path was well indicated. There were lots of juicy, fat blueberries to be picked for a light snack as the lookout provided an incredible view of Onaping Falls, one of the biggest waterfall in Ontario. A trail to fall in love with.
