In terms of hiking experience, 5 stars. Recommend going in the fall: great colours and temp. Advise making use of this app’s map - trail has a few forks and options which lead in different directions. Crossing, I mean balancing over the stream, with a small dog and camera in hand, will be personally memorable. Enjoy!

pretty nice hike ! the trail is not really marked but easy to find. the view at the end is so beautiful.
moderate hike that can be done in 2-2h30 !

I would rate this trail more as moderate than easy, but it was still enjoyable. There are lots of great views along the trail. Make sure to wear proper footwear as the rocks are slippery and there are several muddy spots along the way. The creek crossing was challenging, look for the crossing slightly off the path, it's much easier.

Great hike through cedar and oak forest. Falls are a cool spot. Only drawback is the amount of litter and garbage. What is wrong with people? Next time I will bring a garbage bag.

Nice hike,beautiful place. Parking lot is small and the road to get in is terrible.

Great hike, I’ve done it three times and it’s always a good time. It’s a moderate difficulty with the exception of crossing the river which is difficult with small children or more senior hikers. The waterfall is definitely a highlight and swimming is possible at the fall. The only downside are potential campers that can be noisy and litter.

Nice hike with some decent elevation changes. My 10 year old daughter’s new favourite trail.

Nice and easy

This is a fun and fairly easy hike. The only challenging part in the river crossing. There are some great views and swimming opportunities and the waterfall at the end is pretty cool. It's a great place to bring your dog on a hike or do some free camping.

There are 3 trails in total that all meet at certain points along the way to form a loop. We took the Marsh Trail and it was well marked with blue markers, not yellow as indicated on the signs. A few big trees were down and lots of poision ivy be aware. As well with July the deer flies were very bad. Nice boardwalks and you cross a nice creek with a shady spot. Of course we went and viewed the Petroglyphs such an amazing piece of history. Gates are locked at 5:30pm

Nice jaunt for an afternoon. Good trail and good views

On the easy side of moderate. Gets your heart pumping, but not too much climbing involved. Lots of wildlife - we saw garter snakes, toads, minnows & a turtle skeleton. Various mushrooms & fungi. Keep your ears & eyes open for creatures in the brush. The rocks on Minnow Lake are a great place to sit for a while & take it all in.

Petroglyphs Provincial Park offers a couple of decent hiking trails, most of them going through forests with some nice lake views. The one i hiked was very easy.
