Incredible can’t wait to go back

Beautiful and very clean. Trail is well marked and very clear. It’s pretty much all uphill the whole time but it’s pretty gradual and manageable. May not be great for seniors or small kids. But, We’re not exactly in the best shape and it wasn’t really a struggle at all for us. We went on a nice warm day in March so it wasn’t icy and whatever ice was there was pretty slushy so it wasn’t a problem. Be mindful of ice if you’re going in the winter- this trail would be pretty hard with the ice! Great trail for running.

Nice groomed trail for a nice winter walk. Love that the trail goes in the forest and not just around it. Was very peaceful as we only saw one couple the whole afternoon that we were there.

Lovely quiet walk with the sound of flowing water. Trail well maintained. Note that historic bridge over river is closed and under constuction until “spring 2018”. Spotted a pair of Trumpeter Swans in pond upstream from dam, quite impressive and unexpected for March 18, 2018. (see photos)

I absolutely love this trail, I have gone end to end many times and it is a fantastic walk.

Easy walking ended up being 7.6km in length. The boardwalk makes it easy to do.

snow packed trails some muddy spot. Nice hike

Great trail but please hikers...pick up after your dogs!

Nice boardwalk; plenty of parking at 10am; easy access to beach; many dogs were off leash on the beach. Bike trail parallel to boardwalk; access to washrooms ( some closed for the season). Western end was more scenic with views of the city and more of a hikers trail compared to the Eastern boardwalk area. A bit crowded in the boardwalk area. Less crowded in the trail areas.

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.

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.

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 !

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

j'adore y aller avec mon chien

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

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

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 !

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.

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.

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!

trail running

Ran the trail from Woodstock to Hickson on Feb 25th. Most of the trail was clear but there were still some portions with deeper snow and water covered ice that required careful navigation.

Amazing job in opening up the north part of the trail!

Took the roads back on the return trip as the winds were picking up and the chance of tree limbs breaking down was starting to unnerve me.

This is one of the nicer trails in the area and on this particular day I didn’t see one other person.
