Beautiful area BUT. Should not be rated easy if you're on a bike. Pros will love it, but this trail has many walk-your-bike sections. No trail markers and dozens of side trails... easy to get turned around or outright lost. Lots of logs you have to hop over, plenty of sandy sections to big down in. Again a beautiful spot, but not easy.

Loved this trail and will be returning! Great views for pictures and trails are easy enough for the kids!

Great for a historical visit but once you hit the trail in the summer, bring some bug spray. I recommend this one for the fall.

We went a few weeks ago and it’s gorgeous! Will definitely be returning many times :)

Wide open sandy trail that’s easy walking except for the huge puddles and down trees but that’s probably due to last night’s wind storm. Nice forest scenery but a little too much like an ATV trail for me. Bring rubber boots and splash around! A nice beautiful sunny day makes any trail worth the time! A decent outing.

Came back to try the walk again after being iced out last time I was here. It was good! Not a huge fan of train track walking but it was peaceful and there were some nice birds to watch. It’s still slushy and icy and hard to walk in parts but it’s not too bad. Start at the trail on the road along the active train track and come back up the old train trail and up the stairs to Fort Willow which is a nice little treat at the end of the 5km hike before getting back on the road! A good 1:45 minutes bit of fresh air.

nice trail :)

took me a bit to figure out the the trail was the railway tracks. I'm not crazy about walking on railway tracks id rather walk in the woods. the hike was rated easy so that was expected but there not even a challenge or hills.
I would not do this one again. the highlight was the fort which was not large and was not much to see.
plus you are supposed to pay for parking.
crazy! there are way better trails

Not overly scenic. It is a quarry after all. Lots of loose sand so not easy on the ankles. Overall OK but there are much nicer trails nearby.
