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.

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

Fun trail with plenty of detours available. The directions lead you to a parking lot that may be full and requires payment. You might find parking along the road if you get there early enough. The start of my route is by the road and gives you plenty of choices which way to wander. Some slight challenges in spots but fun nonetheless. Plan to come back and try some of the other off shoots.

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.

This trail takes a LOT longer to hike through that expected. It took my group of friends about 4 hours to hike the whole trail. The view from the lookout point is outstanding and you also get to pass by a little pond. The only downfall was our poor choice of visiting a week after the April 2018 snowstorm in Ontario - all the snow was melting faster than the soil could absorb it, leaving us to trek through large amounts of very deep puddles. Despite that, it was an amazing experience and I’d love to explore it again!

Really beautiful, no waterfalls but great hike

Great hiking area only about 60-75 min from Toronto. The weather was beautiful at just below freezing. Some ice on the path made the hiking fun with the whole family and the pup. We did ~5Km and stayed mostly in the value area looking at rock formations and then climbing on them:) The trail had moderate traffic with other people who couldn't stay inside any longer! We read that there were some small caves, but couldn't find them...maybe due to snow or ice cover. This just means we have to come back to look some more:)

great hike.. did 5k in just over an hour.. nice look out on the cliffs

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.

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

I really like the lookout point that can be accessed from this trail. It's pretty spectacular on a clear day, especially with fall colors.

Always love Mono Cliffs! It was snowing and beautiful up at the Lookout off McCarsten Lake. Magic.

Love this trail at the Island Lake Conversation Area. This lake is man made and quite large. The trail takes you all around the lake with many bridges to cross different parts of the lake. There is no up or down hills, the 10 km trail around the lake is pretty flat. Lots of benches to sit and enjoy the view. Very small patches of forest to walk thru. Very well taken care off. Side parking off of Huronontario gives you free entrance. Definitely coming back here many times!

Good views and good trails. Very busy trails and sometimes horses.

the trails were well marked and easy to follow, but it would have been nice ìf the main attractions of the park had directions on the trail signs, lots of people were asking directions to get to the cliffs. The main trail that's marked in red is fairly easy but once you get into the cliff or Bruce trail there is lots of steep climbing and decents. High traffic on weekend, the parking lot was almost full by 11 am

Took 4.5 to do this whole trail from Hockley Road to Dunlop Rd. Quite steep, lots of up and down the hill. Lots of creeks which was nice. Markings were very poor. Parking was very bad, took 45 minutes to find a spot.

Worth the trip to this park especially in fall. Parking was $7.50 at the pay meter. Trails well marked and maintained. Enjoyed the side trails of the Bruce. Awesome to see horses also using these trails

Beautiful tail with bridges, do few uphill down hill. Definitely recommended

great trail for a quick day hike!

Very nice trails, not very hard, close enough from Toronto. I was alone all day on the trails, very beautiful and peaceful.

Beautiful hike with the family. Will definitely come back.

Absolutely amazing spot and can't wait to go back.

Pleasant day hike. Not overly scenic or challenging, but a nice day out on a trail.

Beautiful!
