Went here at beginning of May 2018
we used the west trails as recommended.... awesome, just awesome... I would recommend this to anyone.... but I want it all to myself.
I have decent tires but no serious obstacles, west is for moderate off-road.
Eat I may try next.

Awesome!

A disappointment for us. The trails are in good condition but the scenery was bland. After enjoying trails around Uxbridge and Stouffville this Spring we were expecting more. The drive there was very nice and salvaged the trip.

A good number of trails but also lots of hills. Don’t miss the lookout (on the lookout side trail) - you can see all the way to Toronto on a clear day.

Was a lovely ride. Would like to go further next time:) would be amazing to be able to go the distance!

We went earlier last week & had a blast. Only thing is, a lot of people don’t listen to the rules when signs say keep dogs on leash. Besides that smooth sailing and a lot of fun & sun ☺️

Good trail markings. There were some trails that were closed for rehabilitation. Good thing there are plenty of side trails to use to complete the loop. For free parking, go through 2nd Road and park on the street.

You can check my recording for the access point as well as how to go around the closed trail on the current map.

Really nice trail. I brought my dog off-leash. Unfortunately he found a porcupine and got quilled and we spent the event at the emergency Vet office...$500 later.

There are some abandoned ancient lumber mills/towns along the way...if you look hard enough you can find them.

Will repeat

Great place has a little of everything. stairs if you prefer or a gradual run up and around. very nice. kinda busy but the views make it worth while. Parking fees apply.

Trails was beautiful. Not too busy. Walked from hwy 93 and Ingram rd to horseshoe valley resort and back. Trail was flat. Lots of fresh water for the dog to swim in.

A pleasant walķ to begin with, but carrying on after the falls is very much worth it. We saw lots of Trillium and some other wildflowers. A nicer walk than most.

Great trail with tons of diversity, Marsh, dry woods, ponds, rolling hills and a lovely lookout! Really clean but as the weather is getting nicer it is quite busy. If recommend going early in the morning to avoid crowds. It’s a bit hilly so if you go earlier in the year beware of ice patches! Dog friendly but must be leashed! Paid parking at the trail head with lots of room.

A good hike. Not the most scenic time for the park. A little bleak - shed its winter coat but very little spring life. It will probably be more enjoyable in 2 weeks to a month.

Did 13km here in under 4 hours. The park is not very dense with forrest, so not much shade, mostly tall thin trees. There are about 4 very small lakes through the park and some cliffs with a look out point. Parking is $14.50 but if you drive around you can park free on the street in many places. Bruce trail is probably the best trail at this provincial park. Views and scenery was just ok, nothing spectacular. Markings were very good.

Trail is in fantastic condition as of May 10/18
Traveled through it on my hybrid bike going north using the snowmobile trail which was loose dirt but exciting straight downhill lines. Travelled on the gravel/maintained pathway south at night with my road light. Nice packed gravel trail and nicely done log railings as well. Nice access route between north Barrie and Springwater rather than the nearby 80km/h roadways. Use this trail to travel to and from the sports complex off of nursery road.
Highly recommended for a nice trail with some hills and terrain variations for both hiking and biking

Great hike! Go early in the morning to avoid crowds and yeild to horses on the trail.

The trail was almost totally flooded. There were a few patches that weren't but were still very wet. Several areas had fallen trees and you had to go way off trail to get around them. I had to abandon the trail early as it wasn't very easy to navigate with all the flooding and down trees. Would not recommend this trail until early summer/fall.

good info

Hiked 14km there today! Did all the trails in the park and it was a blast. Brought my dog and it was good enough for her too! Not all parts are kid friendly but it’s a good trail.

Beautiful views and great place to explore.

I used to love bringing our husky through the trails - as it isn’t as busy as other trails in Durham Region - but recently have avoided it because it has become very overused.

Awesome trail with waterfall. When we hiked along the trail, we opted to do a bit of bouldering through the rocks by the waterfalls. Noticed there were free firewood along the trail and a little place to set-up bonfires if you feel like it. It's well kept and surrounded by shrubbery.

We went here on a weekday and we had the whole place all to ourselves. Awesome walk, quiet and it takes you right in the middle of the forest. Explored during the summer time so there were lots of horse flies, make sure to bring some bug spray. Only thing that freaked me out was when the trail to the 'open barrel' area started. Didn't want to be mistaken as an animal. Otherwise this trail is worth the drive and awesome to explore.

Great trail! Small hill at the beginning and the rest is pretty flat. Options to extend the hike by taking other trails. Beautiful area!! Highly recommend.

Beautiful trail, would rate this easy not moderate! Falls was flowing!! It was pretty awesome! Fire pit at the top if you want to sit and have lunch! Wood was provided! Very nice place!!

Last fall on a beautiful day. it was a great day out with the teenagers and great opportunity for pictures. Close to home we will definately be back.
