I would rate this as an easy trail not a moderate, but plenty of good views! A nice stroll

Beautiful trail and while I would definitely hike it again I would not recommend it for someone who isn’t used to hiking. My mom had a really hard time with how hilly and rocky the trail got in some places. Next time I would also agree with others who suggested parking at Tiffany Falls and taking the trail backwards. The parking near Sherman falls is pretty far from the trailhead and is uphill on the way back and after a hike on a humid day, that hill was not fun.

Nice easy walk. Pretty falls to see.

This place is so amazing. Peaceful, beautiful, full of wildlife and a great variety of elevation. There’s a stream too and lots of side trails so there’s lots of possible routes. I didn’t want to leave

This trail is my favourite in Dundas. It is quick, and has some spectacular views of the surrounding area, flora, and fauna of Dundas Valley. I highly advise sunrise hikes here, since the sun rises with almost unobstructed views of the East. It is very magical, especially in summer when wildlife, and the morning humidity is abundant.

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.

Nice well kept trail. Except for the bikes speeding and not
signaling that they are approaching . Other wise quite enjoyable.

Trail doesn’t exist at the end of the loop. Tried to follow it on the map which said we were on the trail but it wasn’t there. Wouldn’t recommend the loop to anyone! But going one way to the stairs down the cliff then turning back would be a nice hike

Great in the fall!

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

Walking along with the creek. Wanderful waterfall! Very nice place for Hiking.

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 trail for getting little ones interested in hiking. Lots of roots and rocks to negotiate around. Waterfall views and river sound is awesome. Trees have fallen and block the path in a few spots. Girls had a blast and both fell asleep in the truck on the way home. Truly impressed to all those who put the time in to make the trail what is. Thank you.

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.

Lots of fun with great variety of hills. Keeps it interesting with beautiful scenery to go along with it

Really busy midday at the waterfall. Otherwise enjoyable hike.

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.

great hike very peaceful

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.
