Beautiful forest walk! We did the 0.9 km trail loop from the Heritage trail. Up hill half the way so it was good exercise and the granddaughters loved it!

amazing trail! I don't like the $10 entrance fee.

There are so many trails that make up the Dundas Valley so your hike can be as long or short as you want it to be. Trail is well kept. Really enjoyed hiking here!

Nice easy walk. Pretty falls to see.

Just loved it... best place to hike... felt amazing seeing green everywhere... will definitely go again

This hike is amazing. Elevation change, waterfalls, incredible biodiversity, and not heavily used. I recommend adding to the trail either by Sherman Falls, or the McCormack Trail, to make it easier to park and have some more beautiful additions.

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.

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

This trail runs from Christie Conservation in the south through Beverly Swamp up to the Fletcher Creek Ecological Preserve in the north . Some sections are on road , some of which can be busy . One section is quite steep and could be difficult to casual hikers . Christie park is very regulated with pay parking etc . The Fletcher Creek Ecological Preserve is unregulated and has been know for large bush parties in the past . Beverly Swamp in the middle is a bug's paradise . You will need sturdy boots for the off road sections and log pants for tick protection permethrin treated preferably . Definitely need mosquito repellent and deer fly patches . Fairly long days outing bring lots of water and as all water along the trail is considered contaminated . The adjoining land owners are not friendly so best to ignore them . Enjoy !

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.

I did this trail February 2018. I loved it! It's probably more beautiful in the summer. Cambridge waterfall was in the vicinity. It had a few muddy spots. It's also part of the Bruce trail and crossed paths with other trails.

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

Very hilly, but note, a good portion 2+ km of this trail is ROAD, the middle section of the trail is broken up - the trail stop at Safari Road and then restarts at 8th Concession. We turned back as we had dogs and didn’t want to walk on the road with them, but may be nice if you start at the north end and walk south (towards 8th Concession). Don’t think we would do this again, between 6th Concession and Safari Road it is very hilly.

Love the gentle terrain, nice rocky streams, tall trees and friendly horse riders. Can be a a bit busy with mountain bike riders on weekends. Nice highlight is the trail center, lots of interesting wild life facts, amazing old style steam train. Overall a nice trail.

Not what we expected at all , will never go back

The Main Loop is a gravel path through lovely forest and meadow environments. There are a few fairly steep climbs but overall should be very manageable for most hikers.

Very beautiful trail. Watch out for horse poop along the trail.

great scenery - lots of trail options for all levels

Great trail and very beautiful and well taken care of. As someone else mentioned, there were no waterfalls in this trail which is what we specifically came for.

I went because the app said it had waterfalls. I followed the map pretty diligently and found no waterfalls. It still gets a 5* from me for immaculately groomed trails and beautiful forestry. I had to park 1/2 mile away from the trail head too. There are other parking locations to use that seemed much closer to the trail. The three waterfalls are on a different section of trail than this one.

Very nice trail, combined with the Main Loop trail this is probably one of the more worthwhile hiking trails within driving distance of Toronto. It's an easy trail but goes up and down quite a bit, so it's pretty good exercise. I was there on a Public Holiday and even then it wasn't too busy.

Easy trail hike, but when you get there late it would be nice if remaining staff were able to direct you to the actual trail, rather than say " I don't know exactly where it starts"
Other than that trail was OK...

Love this trail! It's difficult enough for me to feel accomplished when I am done the trail but not too difficult where I feel I can't complete it. Gorgeous views. Lots of wildlife. And if you park at the entrance by the Mill on Old Dundas St its free parking! Lots of pros!

Beautiful trails for a family day trip. The raptor center must not be missed.
