Did this walk/hike about 4/5 weeks ago and there was a lot of mud (to be expected)! It was still exhilarating and fabulous! Caves, a quarry, lovely look-out area and little brooks. Can’t wait to do it over and over again and of course to experience it now in the spring. My watch said we did 9km in total.

Easy trail, fairly quiet, lots of birds

Really enjoyed it

Beautiful walk in the city.

Very pleasant.

Fun trail. Lots of wooden walk ways over small rivers, ponds and even a waterfall. Lots of fun for the dogs!

Last fall on a beautiful day. it was a great day out with the teenagers and great opportunity for pictures. Close to home we will definately be back.

A perfect Canadian Shield fix for those looking for rocks, pine trees and water. There are many scenic views of both forest and the lake. I did the trail a few times winter 2018 in the morning and had no other hikers - lovely solitude. However, I am guessing it is very popular and busy in warmer weather.

I walk the trails weekly.
Always something new to see if you take your time and look around.
An annual pass is well worth it if you live locally.

Enjoyed the area! Came during the spring, so it was quite messy, but enjoyable :) I will be writing a blog post about my trail trek on thecaptainandhislady.com

Loved it! You can read my blog posts on thecaptainandhislady.com :)

Awesome secluded trail that has trees, fields and hills.

It also has a pokéstop at the partridge fen deck.

Nice place to visit its great to take pics.

We went for a hike in the short hills via the entrance off of Pelham road and did a 8.8km loop (we explored a little). It was April 8, 2018 and the hike started slightly below zero and finished slightly above zero. The trail was pretty muddy throughout, but manageable as parts were still frozen. Several bridge crossings and multiple waterfalls along this route. Fairly easy terrain. A little busy at the trail head and by Swayze falls, which were very beautiful. Fun for the whole family and the pup!

Great 7.5 kms loop. if you go left when starting feels like more uphill. nice and open. great for beginners.

Pretty trail and look out. Some strenuous caves if you're up for them but they aren't necessary to complete the hike. We went in early spring and it was the perfect temperature, a little chilly in the caves.

Lots of variety on this hike: meadow, forest, road, rocks. Park one car at Lavender and the other on 9/10 Concession to make this an end to end hike.

Great work out for beginners!

it's a lovely trail. lots of intersecting trails so it's important to pay attention to where you are going. there's a lot of flat ground but the hike to the falls is steep and quite the workout. it gets slippery in wet weather. The falls are closed off and the trail doesn't loop around so it's a one way walk to the falls and back. it's beautiful and scenic with access to the river at various points. it's one of my favourite places to hike.

we love coming here , especially in the winter! great trails!

Not impressed they wanted me to pay to get in at the front booth even though it is winter and told me my car would be towed if I left it out on the street WONT BE BACK

Visit today 1st time for a trail running and have a fun time. Beautiful scenery with some good technical uphill, downhill, muddy, stony road and single lane. Some obstacles and in forest on the hill you can run around off-trail and run on branch and tree. Still very muddy and wet on the ground with some fallen trees, but that's what's trail running for. Definitely come back to explore and run again.

BTW, some of the trail marking is not clear, just be caution.

Perfect trail for a Sunday afternoon. No bugs. If you go outside of the regular season, there's no charge.

A historical trail with well marked trails. Slightly rocky in spots with a mix of forest, hills and fields. Seats long the way for a pause if needed. Posted map boards very helpful. Hike was in the beginning of April with very icy trails. Intend to visit again in warmer weather when trails are more navigable and histoical facilities are open. Very nice with a fair amount of family hiking use.

Love this trail. Great for a day hike but offers more challenging conditions than your average walking trail in the province. Wish I could find more trails like this one (outside of Frontenac Park)

Well maintained walk and amazing views of the lake. Can’t wait to go in the summer! Did a 4km route of our own but hoping to tackle the 9.4km (one direction not a loop) route!!!!! Great parking and ablution facilities.

Nice trail.

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!

Just a reminder that they fine you $10,000 if you walk on the closed trails near Albion Falls. I went today and there was bi-law officers walking around keeping an eye out. Might as well just stay safe and not go on closed trails.

April the leaves arnt back yet and some trails are really muddy, so kind of dangerous for some. However, it does get very nice in the summer.
