Fantastic trail along the river for all season hiking. I see deer quite often, and it's usually not too busy. It's a nice hidden gem in London!

The parking lot was not plowed so we parked on the road (it was not a big deal since it was a quite area). The trail was short, 2km, so we did it twice. We really enjoyed it and I would go back to explore it again and other trails nearby. Some locals we talked to said there were longer trails just east of this location.

Beautiful wooded terrain with good selection of trails

This was a pretty good trail, keep in mind this is in winter with feet of snow on the ground, cross-country skiiers were out there. Great for all types, easy trail, well owen in paths and the loop that goes through moore park to the brickworks is a great workout at about 7km.

Have done this trail many times. It’s my favourite trail closest to Toronto! Hiked it yesterday, road is closed during the winter so add 2km each way to your hike. The sign at the trailhead says the trail is 10km but every time I have done it my devices have shown around 13km. In the snow yesterday it was about 16.5 km and took us 6 hours. Winter hiking is not my thing, but the trail is still fantastic! Highly recommend!

Pretty short paved path. Wasn’t bad but there really wasn’t much too it
Also I parked at east side Mario’s but I feel like it would have been easier to park at manuallife because that’s where the entrance is

A fair amount of timber cuttings throughout several areas along this trail. Actually opens up trail nicely.

Very nice forest with well maked trails. Few people but the sound of cars on the adjacent highway broke the peace of the walk. Friendly area with police station, restaurants and mall shopping close to site. Will return again !

We hiked the Chickadee and Kingfisher trails on a gorgeous, sunny March day. It was very slippery in places and muddy, but my kids loved that! The scenery was breath-taking and the gurgling creek sounds relaxing.
It would’ve helped to have a trail map posted on at the beginning of the trails, so I would recommend printing one out from the Scanlon Creek website. Although the trails are well marked with a bird silhouette sign, the entire loop was not marked. My 5 yr old son was getting tired and I wasn’t sure which was the fastest loop back to the start.

Beautiful trail hike in March...will go again for sure.

nice open trails and easy to follow

j'adore y aller avec mon chien

Easy and quiet walk in winter.

Nice winter easy winter trail. Also good for Nordic cross country skiing. Trails are relatively flat. Great for viewing birds!

Attempted in Jan 2018. Covered 18km in the first day. Beautiful winter scenery and just the right amount of trail difficulty for someone used to trekking and climbing in the Rockies. Only regret was not taking enough photos!

Encountered an unexpected severe drop in temperatures. Forecast had called for -18C as the overnight low, but a high pressure system blew away the anticipated snow clouds and dropped temps to below -30C. We were not ready for that extreme level of cold and bailed the next day. Can’t wait to gear up and try this out again someday, but maybe not in January.

Decent outing but the cliffs were a little underwhelming - even by southern ontario standards. Still made for an enjoyable hike

For what and where it is, beautiful spot year round. On rare occasion you might even spot some interesting wildlife! Trail is super easy, definitely not “moderate”

This used to be one my favourite local spots. Back in 2012-2013 I would have given this a solid 5/5 star rating. The trail since then has been seriously overused and suffers from lots of erosion (the whitevale section in particular). And now a construction site for a new subdivision boarders the southern portions of the trail.

Late sept - oct is the best time to go, as the mosquitos & deerfly are BRUTAL throughout summer.

Having said all that, the trail does have nice sections especially in late fall and early spring. If you do the whole trail return trip is 5-7 hours pending on your pace, which is longer than most of the other trails within the area.

Amazing in autumn if hiking the bruce trail, but can’t imagine coming through in spring or during a wet summer. Combined it with Rockway Conservation Area for a full day

Very beautiful spot, but in March bring spikes for the icey sections of the trail !

If you like waste barrels and traffic cones randomly strewn through out your hiking trail, this is the place for you!

Not sure why the error, but the previous review refers to the wrong trail. Maple Keys Sugar Bush Conservation Area is nowhere near Clinton, Ont. or the Hullet Marsh area. It is south east of Molesworth on Maple Keys Line. I have just returned from a winter hike and found it peaceful and beautiful, although the trail is poorly marked and I found myself walking much farther than the 1 km estimate given. It does cover a wide variety of ecosystems and is of moderate difficulty. Boardwalks through wetlands are in bad shape, which I suspect is due to recent flooding. There are 2 linear trails which could rather easily be connected for a longer loop. Hopefully the MVCA will be making this a reality in the near future. I look forward to returning in the spring.

Been coming here since I was a child, great hike. The full beaver damn trail - hilton falls - bears bathtub route will take you about 4 hours at a leisurely pace.

Great hike, cool boardwalk around the lake. Make sure you check out the long houses.

Beautiful trail, well marked and extremely clean! Great for kids and dog. We went in the beginning of March and it was pretty icy in some spots (be careful with children!!!). It can get a little steep in some areas that are then exasperated by the ice but go slow and it’s totally doable. We went with a dog and an 8 year old and while it took us a bit longer, it was manageable. Lots of creeks to cross but all of them are very crossable! Part of the trail runs on a service road (700 m?) but it’s quick and we only saw 1 car. Be mindful of dogs off leash here, there are many regulars that do not leash their dogs.

Great easy trail. Beautiful scenery.

Today we went with our 3 dogs and had a great time, it was clean snow and clear markings of the trail.

A nice little trail with lots of creeks and little log bridges but just waaaay too much car noise from the nearby highway and county road. Once we got up the ridge a bit and away from the roads it was really nice though with some nice song birds. Lots of great downed trees and gnarled trunks. Some great trees for 10-15ft climbs to have a break and swing your feet. Will come back when the snow is gone to get into those trees!

It’s not a particularly interesting trail. Lots of poison ivy.
