easy-peasy.

Beautiful trail. Tall trees

walk this nearly everyday, it's an awesome trail!
not great for winter walking though, there is NO winter maintenance done even to the parking lot.

My favourite trail of the area. Best before or after summer when there are significantly less campers around the lake. Really nice river and small spots you can go off trail exploring. Lots of great views and have seen beavers around the dam! My dog loves, but keep on leash because there's some cliffs.

Lots of bugs and people in July/August, but perfect in late May/ early June. Not the most trafficked trail.

Was a nice trail easy enough for the kids to walk it. Although you couldn’t see the lake much in the summer was still beautiful

got up early for a holiday Monday. We took the dog and went for a nice easy walk through the trail. Lots of chipmunks and even seen a gardener snake. not too many people on the trail which was nice . Weather was perfect. Easy hike for anyone looking to just walk around in nature without breaking a sweat.

Great trail for family bike ride. Well maintained, nice scenery. Will be back!

great kid-friendly family trail

Wide, flat and well maintained trails but not much a view in the summer.

Loved this trail. The trailhead sign warns trail takes 2-3 hours. We did it with two kids, 9 and 11, in 1.5 hours. It’s a steep climb, but worth the effort. There are about three lookout points

This is a flat trail. You follow the grand river around the loop. You can begin anywhere off of Grand River road. Lots of free parking. Be mindful of people leisurely walking, they rarely pay attention to their surroundings. I recommend a weekday ride, less congested. I do not recommend solo rides for women in the evening, since the trail is also an artery for many unsavory individuals.

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

I sadly didn't get too far before I sprained my ankle but there was excellent scenery from what I did see. Trail wasn't marked well but planning on going back and trying again when it's cooler.

Beautiful trail, lots of scenery. Floating bridge was fun. Stop by the entrance at night and you'll see hundreds of fireflies above the water. Gets pretty hot out on those rocks in July and the blackflies were horrible. Go prepared and you'll love it.

Beautiful scenery, some areas are challenging. Not a light walk. Difficult to find the markers at times. Black flies very bad in July and very hot on the rocks in the blazing sun so be prepared. I did enjoy it though and will go back at.a cooler time.

It was very peaceful easy hike, the water was very calm, we had the beach all to our selves

Really good to walk where there is no auto traffic.

This trail was a beautiful little drive from Belleville and the trail itself did not disappoint. I was the perfect mix of uphill, downhill and flat terrain. Bufflehead and the other trails were probably the best marked I have seen. The trail was 90% shaded by trees and ran through several small bodies or waters, marshlands, dams and such. Very wet area had excellent makeshift walkways and trails were well marked. The park map they hand out was not very helpful. Bring lots of water, bug spray, good hiking boots and your camera.. I hiked the full 8 km. Also its costs 14,50 for a day pass at the park. And didn’t pass a single person. Bring a whistle. Just in case. Saw snakes, deer and chipmunks. Definitely a moderate rated hike. Enjoy !

backpacking

This trail is a great workout if you are going for a day hike, if you are going backpacking i recommend you go light, and i mean no more than 15 kg if you dont want to struggle, unless you are in excellent shape. Its a nice trail but it has a lot of elevation changes and challenging terrain, its not a bad thing but just to have in mind. All camping sites are really cool with nice views to the lakes. So the hike is totally worth it. Recommend bringing trekking poles and if you are concerned about ticks or mosquitoes as i am, cover yourself up as there are sections where you will have to go right in between the bushes. One thing i found peculiar is that all 5 camping sites are right on the path of the trail so even though its not busy expect to see the odd hiker passing by right next to you. Toilet on site 529 is not marked. Took a while to find it on a little path behind a big rock literally by site 529 west of the picnic table. In short its a nicw trail but it is also challenging so be prepared for it! :)

great loop, very nicely maintained trails with boardwalks and gravel. nice views of the lake.

Slightly busy a great trail. Lots is shade along route with beautiful views of the Grand River.

For travelling on foot this trail sucks! Too many cyclists. There are better trails to walk or hike on than this. There are some parts downtown though that are good to walk on but most of it should be left for the cyclists. It is a great trail to bike on though.

The falls are amazing but please stay out of the fast water - it is NOT safe.

Very busy park in the heart of Brampton. Definitely not “hiking” more like manicured dirt paths and paved trail. However, it’s a lovely place to go for a stroll or hangout with the family for a picnic. Dogs must (and should) be on leash. There is an entrance fee during the open season but during the closed season, there are LOTS of dog walking regulars who do not leash their dogs-so, be aware if you don’t like that.

Great for a family hike

A beautiful hike in a very old forest. My family goes every spring and fall.
