Relaxing but still interesting hike .We met Young Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina) on the main path to the parking lot .

Visited mid September, 30C outside mid day. Zero bugs and only other people on trail were motorized vehicles.

Thoroughly enjoyed getting right into nature on this hike. The path is narrow and for the most art, not maintained. In some areas the path was clear and there were boardwalks for short distances. The scenery was awesome! Fields of flowers, tall trees, babbling river — worth coming here for a nature trip! Wear comfortable shoes as the terrain varies quite a bit. And yes, there are a lot of red ants so comfortable shoes AND socks is a good idea. I’ll definitely be back to explore more!

Loved it! Great trails which are clearly marked and easy to follow.

Beautiful day and place to take in all the beauty of nature!!

Beautiful woods. Great trails for biking or hiking.

Absolutely amazing for hiking. The trails are clearly marked. There are plenty of different lengths of trails for different abilities. There were a few people horseback riding, so watch out for the horse poop on the trail. We were walking for an hour and did 2 trails. There is so much more to explore, I can't wait to go back.

Started on the South Outlier trail then to the Bruce Trail, the Cliff-Top, and then the Lookout. South Outlier starts off with pretty steep inclines, but is a good workout!! Did 9K yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed this hike!!

Easy trail with nice forest path to the falls. Took about 30-40 minutes to reach the falls with frequent stops and leisurely walk. When you reach the falls, there is a wooden stairs to go down and take nice photos. Its a family friendly hike!

awesome hike and beautiful lookout!!

You can get lost for hours and it is the best thing ever!! This is a great trail for ATV !! 5 stars !!

Nice park for kids 7 and under - park has birds of prey shows + bird viewing area, horses, bison, chickens, goats sheep, play barn where kids can play in wood chips, nature trails that are stroller friendly, small gift shop with ice cream, small (very small) beach area. Nice family park.

We took our 3 year old granddaughter with us and the trails were easy enough for her to do. We had a great time.

To date the safest and most well marked trails I have been on as a solo female hiker. With so many trails to choose from with varying distances I could go there every weekend for weeks to do them all ( and plan too) These trails are very well marked and I would say are a mountain bikers dream. There was the perfect mix of flat terrain, hills, and forest. I did the Green C and added on the Red. I was also in search of the Fire Tower ( Oak Ridges Trail) but could not find it until I left. ( PS ... There is NO Fire tower) I didn't see any wild life or take any photos as the scenery was strictly forest with no ponds, lakes or scenic views. Cant' wait to go back in the fall to see the beautiful fall foliage as well as in the winter to snow show.
Side note... the Fire Tower is a good steep hike easily located across the street in the parking lot on the Morris Trail Head. I was disappointed that the actual Fire Tower was just a bunch of supports where the tower used to be and thus there was no view from the top at all.

I enjoyed the hike, trails were not busy at all. Saw some deer, wild turkeys, and a fox.
Although you can get lost easily because of too many trails and poor markings.
Main Tract Trail on this app is not correct in some places because of deforestation, took me a while to get through but there’s an alternative way.
Overall very nice place.

Good trail with enough changing landscape to keep it interesting. Lots of horse droppings so watch your footing. Little more than a trickle coming off of Swayze Falls (hiked in August) but still a very neat rock formation.

Lots of off-shoot options. Great trails.

great trail...tons of side trails to adventure off in to. Will definitely be back to check out the other trails.

Great trails

it could be a nicer place. IF dog owners would pick up after there dogs more often
also the portable washrooms are in horrible condition. they are not attended too as often as they should be.
also I really wish "DOG WALKERS" would not bring 5 PLUS BIG DOGS in the SMALL DOG off leash area as small dogs have gotten hurt

Nice to spend an afternoon there!

Went yesterday for a walk with my pup and the trails were covered in red aunts, I’ve never seen so many.

Overgrown trail. It was ok. would go back.

Trail head in Locust Hill is infested with Red Ants. We had to get our dog into the river to get them off, ran back to the car after and still had to pick about 15 off of her. We must of disturbed them on the way in because they were everywhere on the way out.
The trail seemed really overgrown this time. We havent been in a couple years.

I made my own South Side Loop and it was great! A lot of variety from smooth paths to rock scrambling! There's even a river crossing! Rough, Rocky, Slopey, Bushy. Wear long pants! There might be a beaver in the area. Pack atleast 1.5L water, Sandwich, 2-3 Cereal bars.

Great for Jeeps. First time taking our Rubicon JL, definitely will be back!!

The trail is divided into two loops- 1.9 and 2.4. The 1.9 loop is beautiful and takes you through a more wooded area. The 2.4 isn’t well tended at this time of the year and seems to run more on the outside of the woods. I would imagine it would be nicer in the fall, especially once it’s been tended to.
