Parked at tews falls, has the biggest parking lot. Great hike with mild elevation. Can be very busy so avoid weekend afternoons.

Yeah well...this used to be an amazing place. Used to start at the school in Dundas and finish at the peak.

20 yrs later, no more stairs at Webster’s. They charge a lot of money to use the facility but minimal progress on any attempt to repair the stairs down to a great waterfall you can walk behind. Parts of the trail have completely washed away due to erosion and lack of maintenance.

Sad, it’s so sad what it has become. Our wedding pictures were taken here. I realize I am blending Webster’s and Tews but that was the hike I always did. I miss it, hard one to come close to.

Great afternoon walk

Ran the trail for the first time on Mother's day. I started at the Chedoke stairs and walked down to the trail. Ran 4 k up to the foot path over the highway and back. Trail is mostly a wide trail mix of paved and hard pack. There are some sections with bike tire ruts. You can get a complete workout if you through in the Chedoke stairs.

It was a good hike! Lots of variation in the elevation and beautiful scenery. The only thing I would suggest is putting a parking lot closer to the beginning of the trail.

Unfortunately I lost my Fitbit on the trail this morning. I’m hoping whoever finds it might see this

RBG has begun charging full park entrance fees to use this trail so unless you want to pay $18/adult for a hike? I’d go elsewhere.

Beautiful trail, lots of ups and down. I went during the week therefore it was very quiet... saw a few runners and cyclist. Very good indication of the main trail. The only downfall is the giant hill my dog and I had to walk back up when going back to the car.

An old cart path that cuts through copses between farm fields and rural roads on top of the escarpment. Very flat and straight topography throughout. Large section of well maintained boardwalks that meander through swampy woodland where you'll hear frogs croaking as you pass. All around pleasant, but easy route for walking or cycling. Prepare accordingly for ticks, by wearing long pants and checking your clothes after. I failed to heed my own advice and found 5 on me throughout the trip.

Saw 7 deer, 2 racoons and 1 owl. If you want to get closer to the trail drive down the dirt road.

Great park with great trails. However, if you are off main trails, there are almost no trail signs and markers.

Clean, paved, easy walk by the lake.

Nice walk. Lots of tail signs. Look out was a bit lacklustre.

Just a reminder that they fine you $10,000 if you walk on the closed trails near Albion Falls. I went today and there was bi-law officers walking around keeping an eye out. Might as well just stay safe and not go on closed trails.

April the leaves arnt back yet and some trails are really muddy, so kind of dangerous for some. However, it does get very nice in the summer.

I would classify this as an easy trail. The parking is expensive ($3/hour) and they do ticket so beware. Beautiful trail by the water, pretty quiet on Easter Sunday. Lots of animals including deer and birds.

love the app.no more guessing where i am

Enjoyed this trail by hiking lower devil's punch bowl to Felkers falls. Muddy and bare foliage, which I'd expect for this time of year.

Gorgeous trail ! Beautiful scenery and not many people (visited on a mild day in Feb).

Trail started out nice on top of the escarpment , some nice views . As it got into the city the local riffraff was out in force damaging the trail and spray painting everything . A couple punks wanted to get into it with us , they ran off . The million dollar bridge over the QEW highway is interesting . This trail fell short of expectations . Be prepared on this one !!

This is my staple trail. I do the main loop about 60x a year!

Great trail. Pretty much empty during winter.

mother nature pretty much cleared away presumably for building purposes...

We have leapfroged this trail many times . It has sufficient length for good backpacking . Very busy at the populated ends with people gaulking at us . I guess they have never seen backpackers before , we just smile and wave . The center sections are much less traveled and good distance can be made . I recommend keeping your head up for the fast and heavy bike traffic . Nicest section goes under the 403 along the creek . It used to be the T H & B railway till the river bank caved in at Cainsville , lots of history on this trip . K !!

nothing out of the ordinary

be prepared to pay for parking...

Nice trail - TONS of side trails so this could be made much much longer. The trail was moderately busy (we saw a few cyclists, other hikers and 3 groups of horseback riders), mind you we started our hike at 10am on a mild Saturday. Trail is well maintained and easy to navigate, would rate this trail easy, for any normal hiker.

great trail, super wide and well maintained. I love going for runs along here and every km is marked. I often see deer and it connects to the Dundas Valley Conservation area at about km 5 and theres a whole other network of trails.
