Amazing trail. So beautiful and peaceful, highly recommend!

The trails are nice but could be marked better

Serene, nice walk.

Nice trail, beautiful birds can be seen on this trail.

First time for my Golden and I. Great trail. Friendly people and friendly dogs. Wish I had this app and iPhone with me!

Great trail in the North end of the city. There is some mud & a bit of brush covering the path, but considering this was the first nice weekend of the year it was phenomenal! We saw some others on the trail, but unfortunately not much wildlife this time around

need a solid community clean or put some of those fee towards maintaince of the trail. Did the hike last weekend and was utterly surprised by the amount of junk in the bush

Nice walk, still a bit muddy.

We love this beautiful trail beside the river and can’t wait to see it change with seasons. The only disappointment is the final kilometre through the neighbourhood on the sidewalk. Next time, we’ll turn around at 5 km and head back the way we came for a 10 km hike. Other than that, it’s perfect!

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!

HIKERS BE WARE!!! Especially hikers with dogs off leash!!!!

I was on the trail this afternoon around 1-1:30pm and there was a pack of 5 coyotes active and on the move. Like so active and close to people ... very scary!!!

Nice trail along the river. Wouldn't recommend taking a small dog as there are coyotes (any time of day)

even though this trail is listed as easy, there are quit a bit of stairs and hills. When wet, trail can be muddy and slippery.

great trail but stay aware. there are so many smaller deer trails shooting off along the way, one could get lost easily

Pretty high traffic trail, but it is well maintained.

Dears are often running around in the woods.

Very nice hike, not very challenging.

This is by far the best long trail in the area. Wide variety of different terrain. It doesn’t have much elevation but enough to stay interesting!

Did the the trail a few weekends ago with a buddy.Really liked it started at 6:30am done around 11:30am.

The trail was good, but the new development on the southern edge has ripped apart the trail there, which made trying to traverse the trail next to impossible.

hi there do you allow horse back riding on these trails???

Easy walk on mostly boardwalk with a pretty lookout at the end. Great for young kids.

This is my favourite local trail! Great for dogs and kids. Went yesterday and didn't see any signage regarding the trail being closed due to poison Ivey but there's a lot of it in there. ALOT! But if you stay to the path you'll be fine.

I went and the trail said it was closed due to poison ivy. Just used the smaller easier trail across the bridge.. looped around a few times.

Currently CLOSED due to Poison Ivy
Attempted to use trail today but entrance is blocked

So I'm standing at the gate house to pay my $7:00 fee to hike the other side of the reservoir . Girl says $13:00 and I say no I'm paying for a pedestrian pass . She says is that your car over there ? I said no that is my ride I'm being dropped off at the Thorndale end so I can face the oncoming bike traffic . She says it"s still $13:00 to park up there . Wow do I need to call ahead to talk to someone intelligent . So I finally get my pedestrian pass just to find out later the other three people I run into hiking hadn't paid anything and never do ?? They were walking the wrong direction too and I almost got run over hiking the right direction ?? So my $7:00 is supposed to used on trail maintenance . I saw a garbage can that looks like it has hasn't been emptied in years , signs I couldn't read because they were weathered so badly and unfriendly people along the road sections . The speeding bikes is a whole different matter . If you don't walk facing this traffic you are going to get hit !! I have done both side now and there are some nice views but I will never go back . There are many many better trails in Ontario that cost nothing . Save your $7:00 or $13:00 and go to another trail ! Good luck on this one !!

It's short and easy, but going to the bog is like going to a cottage lake in the city.
