Great trail, we went with our two dogs. It was a workout some of the hills are a steep climb. Will definitely do this one again! Easy to find the opening of the trail on Britannia at Blind Line and space for a few cars to park .

Beautiful falls and great trek through the woods

mostly paved walking beside the river. pleasant.

Great trail. Nice views

Falls were very small. Onaping falls in Sudbury is much better!

Great trail, the farther away from the entrance you go the quieter and less busy it gets. It’s nice that once you’re in far enough you can’t hear the highway anymore either.

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

we LOOOOVED it. the views were breath taking and they got better every single time. the last view is worth all of the rough terrain and difficulty. we brought our dogs and they loved it too.

Gorgeous! Neat way to view the beauty of the Niagara Gorge. Good advice to wear proper shoes to enjoy the rocky terrain. Fun to watch the whirlpool jet boats go by!

Way to many people. My fault for venturing out on a Sunday so close to the city.
1st time in Rattlesnake Point.
Meh..
Love the BTC though!

Nice to spend an afternoon there!

Love that trail !

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.

The diverse shrub and flower species, as well as the hilly terrain, make this trail very aesthetically pleasing. A true gem in the middle of a busy city!

can't download maps though I am a member

Feels longer than 2.3 km, can be a climb at some times. Very picturesque and relaxing.

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

Nice little hiking trail. Always love this spot when I dont want to big of a hike, but not too small of one either.

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.

Fantastic trail, great for dogs. Beautiful scenery with creek.

great spot! Nice lookout also.

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.

Great little trail system that goes all along the water with little scenic off-shoots. Lots of places to swim (at least in 2018 when the water was low) so bring your suit on a hot day. With the number of different trails you could make this as short or as long as you like.

There are also some neat points of interest, in particular the spirit trees. However, an environmental suggestion: please don’t leave your man-made junk at the foot of the spirit tree as an offering. If you feel compelled to leave something rather than leave the trail as you found it then please make it something that is a timeless offering that fits the spirit of the trail - a rock you painted; a note you etched on a piece of bark you found; a leaf snipped into the shape of an animal; or a small inuksuk. Nobody, including the spirits I’m sure, thinks your trash, plastic items, or manufactured toys and crap are a particularly great spiritual gift. If someone travelling this path could not have gifted it hundreds of years ago then don’t gift it now. I’m pretty sure the spirits don’t think all our industrial churn-out is particularly uplifting.

We saw 3 owls and the parts along the river very pretty!

Solid 5+ Km'er
In one ear and out the other

Excellent for riding .

Great trail to hike on especially in fall. Lots of little side trails as well.

It's a nice easy walk for all, nice one to finish the day of longer hiking. The beaver dam is quite neat and worth the visit! Mostly in the shade and doable without hiking shoes. Enjoy!!! :)

Had a lovely easy walk through Galt with my granddaughter and our 12 week old puppy. My little girl loved the bridge and views, but puppy thought it was too hot to walk today (not much shade).
