visit there from time to time. This time I do a trail running in circle with bunny run on the other side 2 weeks ago again. Some places are still wet, muddy and tree fell in 2 places. also some wood small bridges path has some losses. MTB, run or hiking if you don't mind some mud and a little bit off trail. Bunny run on the east side of the river is nice and dry.

Excellent trail for the family that follows along Whiteman's Creek. We were there at the end of winter in March after the great flood of 2018. The creek has many large log dams due to the recent flood. Very picturesque creek though. There is also a bridge going over Whiteman's Creek near the Nature Center and another trail can be taken there that goes along the north side of the creek.

Lovely quiet walk with the sound of flowing water. Trail well maintained. Note that historic bridge over river is closed and under constuction until “spring 2018”. Spotted a pair of Trumpeter Swans in pond upstream from dam, quite impressive and unexpected for March 18, 2018. (see photos)

Walking along the river was nice but not much else to look at and trail was not very well kept when I visited.

Easy walking ended up being 7.6km in length. The boardwalk makes it easy to do.

Fantastic trail along the river for all season hiking. I see deer quite often, and it's usually not too busy. It's a nice hidden gem in London!

This was a pretty good trail, keep in mind this is in winter with feet of snow on the ground, cross-country skiiers were out there. Great for all types, easy trail, well owen in paths and the loop that goes through moore park to the brickworks is a great workout at about 7km.

nice open trails and easy to follow

For what and where it is, beautiful spot year round. On rare occasion you might even spot some interesting wildlife! Trail is super easy, definitely not “moderate”

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.

If you like waste barrels and traffic cones randomly strewn through out your hiking trail, this is the place for you!

Today we went with our 3 dogs and had a great time, it was clean snow and clear markings of the trail.

It’s not a particularly interesting trail. Lots of poison ivy.

Ran the trail from Woodstock to Hickson on Feb 25th. Most of the trail was clear but there were still some portions with deeper snow and water covered ice that required careful navigation.

Amazing job in opening up the north part of the trail!

Took the roads back on the return trip as the winds were picking up and the chance of tree limbs breaking down was starting to unnerve me.

This is one of the nicer trails in the area and on this particular day I didn’t see one other person.

Easy and scenic for Toronto!

Great little trail for a quick hike!

This one was one of the best vacation adventures I've been on. Great hikes and get as close to the water as you want (it is a hefty $10,000 fine to get in though) Lots of rocks to climb and scale if you want (some are inverted so bring some fall protection)

It is now a finished trail that allows a person to hike or bike to Woodstock.
There is one thing in the description of the trail that is incorrect. HORSES ARE NOT ALLOWED on the trail.

Good hike nice hills saw a pair of eagles always a bonus.

A really great 2 hour walk with lots of beautiful natural features like downed trees. Lots of little creeks and ponds to poke with sticks! Lol. My daughter and I had a great time trying to guess the animal tracks! And inventing our own possible animal answers!! Lol. Definitely a nice winter hike! Agreed with another reviewer who said it’ll be amazing in spring. Will definitely be back!

Not a bad first experience with this app! Trail not well travelled so it had a nice trail breaking serenity to it as I divined the route a bit. Trail isn’t always totally obvious but this app kept me on it at times I questioned it. Just on my way out as if it were a karmic gift for getting out hiking/snowshoeing by myself today I saw the biggest pileated woodpecker I might’ve ever seen. It was like a huge fat crow. Maybe pushing 50 to 60cm it seemed in body length. That alone was worth it! :) Recommended but careful if going soon - the honeycombed snow made footings on slants unreliable at times. Plus 3 today though! Can’t complain! :) Did the loop through the Marsh not just the board walk. Took a couple hours with some selfie and “snack” breaks! ;)

Nice little hike, not overly challenging even for children. I've done it many times over the years, including in the winter (icy on the cliff).

HIKERS BE WARE!!! Especially hikers with dogs off leash!!!!

I was on the trail this afternoon around 1-1:30pm and there was a pack of 5 coyotes active and on the move. Like so active and close to people ... very scary!!!

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.

Great little gem of a trail for locals and visitors. Bird watching and board walk

Better for cross country skiing than snowshoeing but enjoyable all the same. River was frozen over well so we were able to venture out!
