Decent walk.. Wouldn’t say I thought it was fantastic. Views were ok. There are better walks close by. We went in January and trail was quite Treacherous.

Saw a deer on the trail. Not well marked but the map on this app got us back to the parking lot. Very enjoyable winter hike.

not sure what everyone is talking about. Even if I wanted to”get lost” would be pretty hard to do. Dont really need trail markers in a place like this. Did did most of rouge trails on the small side trails and in the bush. much more enjoyable and interesting than staying on the main trail

Nice trail. Well manicured and marked.

Beautiful and well maintained trail with clear signs.

Great area for a long or short hike, there are different loops from a 45 min loop, to several hour loops.

Thoroughly enjoyed getting right into nature on this hike. The path is narrow and for the most art, not maintained. In some areas the path was clear and there were boardwalks for short distances. The scenery was awesome! Fields of flowers, tall trees, babbling river — worth coming here for a nature trip! Wear comfortable shoes as the terrain varies quite a bit. And yes, there are a lot of red ants so comfortable shoes AND socks is a good idea. I’ll definitely be back to explore more!

Blocked side trail south of the dam.

it could be a nicer place. IF dog owners would pick up after there dogs more often
also the portable washrooms are in horrible condition. they are not attended too as often as they should be.
also I really wish "DOG WALKERS" would not bring 5 PLUS BIG DOGS in the SMALL DOG off leash area as small dogs have gotten hurt

Went yesterday for a walk with my pup and the trails were covered in red aunts, I’ve never seen so many.

Great trail! My dog, 12 year son and I loved it.

love love love. single track, technical and a few good climbs. fairly easy trail to follow but you have to be able to read trail markers that are on the trees.
amazing scenery!!

Trail head in Locust Hill is infested with Red Ants. We had to get our dog into the river to get them off, ran back to the car after and still had to pick about 15 off of her. We must of disturbed them on the way in because they were everywhere on the way out.
The trail seemed really overgrown this time. We havent been in a couple years.

I made my own South Side Loop and it was great! A lot of variety from smooth paths to rock scrambling! There's even a river crossing! Rough, Rocky, Slopey, Bushy. Wear long pants! There might be a beaver in the area. Pack atleast 1.5L water, Sandwich, 2-3 Cereal bars.

Agree with the last review, pretty easy to get lost if I didn't have this app because there are tons of forks that don't make it clear which the correct way is, so lucky I had it.

Trail itself was nice and was a relatively easy hike.

Good for group hiking. Easy to get lost

Many great options here with the river and cliffs..very scenic winding river to follow..park one car around pine ridge then drive up to whitevale and start there

Was there recently and the trail was seriously overgrown and there is Giant Hogweed around the northern part of the trail. Construction under the 407 also makes it difficult to access. We did however see a beaver.

Very poorly marked, many time there was a fork in the trail with no markers to help. Without this app I would have gotten off track. One good hill up and down on the trail.

Really liked this for a shorter hike.

I hike this trail a lot. from the dog park on Concession 3 to the look out at by whites Rd great elevation changes. runs along the river for a lot of it. works out to about 9k there and back.

I used to love bringing our husky through the trails - as it isn’t as busy as other trails in Durham Region - but recently have avoided it because it has become very overused.

This used to be one my favourite local spots. Back in 2012-2013 I would have given this a solid 5/5 star rating. The trail since then has been seriously overused and suffers from lots of erosion (the whitevale section in particular). And now a construction site for a new subdivision boarders the southern portions of the trail.

Late sept - oct is the best time to go, as the mosquitos & deerfly are BRUTAL throughout summer.

Having said all that, the trail does have nice sections especially in late fall and early spring. If you do the whole trail return trip is 5-7 hours pending on your pace, which is longer than most of the other trails within the area.

Was a nice trial to walk in the winter, looking forward to seeing it in the summer. Slightly icy on some paths but easy to follow and nice scenery. Was hard to find using the directions on this app. The entrance we found was on Mutual street in Pickering. Had a parking lot there that was fee. Also has a play ground and a soccer field. Will defiantly be back again.

The trail itself is amazing! It’s gorgeous with lots of different elevations. There’s also an off-leash fenced dog park in the south end of the trail. Dogs must be on leash on the trail though. Unfortunately enforcement of this rule is minimal as everyone let’s their dogs off leash on the trail. We probably won’t be back again because our pup was attacked by two different dogs who were off leash on the trail. One lady claimed her dog “didn’t like dogs who were not neutered”. Our pup was 4 months at the time and isn’t scheduled for a neutering until 1 year. Nevertheless, how could you allow your dog to roam free off leash when you KNOW your dog may potentially be a threat to other dogs, dog owners and walkers? Definitely such a negligent act. Wouldn’t trust having our pup on the trail again. Even though we kept him on leash, it’s hard to control other dogs and the actions of other owners.
