My first time ever going to this trail and I loved it. Beautiful and very easy with stunning fall colours and views. Anyone will be able to complete this trail.

Love that area. As today Oct 28th,2018, trails are covered of leafs hiding muddy spots along the trails. Obstacles are somewhat slippery be careful if you plan to ride ur mountain bike.

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 :)

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.

A lovely day. A lovely sunset through the trees. Incredibly icy due to the thaw freeze thaw freeze rain thaw freeze of the last few days so take cautious steps or bring crampons! Lol. Definitely pricy to park as someone said but it’s $11, a great cause and supports the great people of Christian Island/Beausoleil Island FN who keep this trail open for our enjoyment! Thanks you guys! Think I’m correct about that!? Lol.

Very nice trails. A little more “people-y” than I prefer and you can hear the traffic from the nearby highway. Nice wide trails, streams and scenery. Very enjoyable!

nice trail :)

Nice quick hikes. The best part is the spring itself with the rare algaes with very cool colours. Hikes are short and quick.

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

Nice trail. Lots of to see if you take your time. Bring your bug spray!!

Easy hike, very peaceful. Trails not well maintained in the winter so wear some good sturdy waterproof shoes.

Great family walk!

A picturesque scenic park with trails of a good length and varying conditions. The red trail was quite wet and soggy in parts. Some of the boardwalks in those locations could be maintained better than just slippery logs places across the trail. Overall a good experience but the parking fee of $11.25 was a bit high

After I found the trail it was a really good hike. My dog and I loved the 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.

Not a bad trail. Hilly with some of the lower portions having a sand surface. No trail markings. The north west leg ends on private property.

clean, flat paths, easy walking, great for dogs, wasn't crowded at all. nice grassy areas for picnics or sun.
very green and we'll taken care of.
paid parking.

Easy trail but very pretty diverse forest on Green trail. Did with snow on ground. Will be nice to go back and see it when things start to bloom.
