Really nice trail. I brought my dog off-leash. Unfortunately he found a porcupine and got quilled and we spent the event at the emergency Vet office...$500 later.

There are some abandoned ancient lumber mills/towns along the way...if you look hard enough you can find them.

Will repeat

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.

This section of the trail goes through a simcoe county forest tract called Charcoal. there is no getting off this point to point trail. you walk between George Johnston Rd and Vespra Valley Rd. there is some movement in the water so it shouldn't be quite so buggy in the summer. on both sides of the trail, as you approach Vespa Valley Rd, there is marshland. with huge expanses visible, it would undoubtedly be a great birding spot.

We had intended to take a walk across the street, but, we found that there was a corresponding section here that happened to be the start of the North Simcoe rail trail. there was a point at which we heard a pack of Coyotes tipping far away. later we heard some close by howling.

this section passes by numerous streams with gentle babbling sounds. both sides of the trail are private property. there is a section about 2km in that leads up to fort willow.

I can only imagine how buggy this would be in spring, so now is definitely the time to go.

Nice trail that meanders along an out of service rail line. I have heard that bears have been seen in the area of the Fort so might be an idea to wear bells or have spray.

Really good trail. Peaceful in winter. I am definitely going to return to either cross country ski or cycle in the spring/fall.

Great trail.

This was a great ride and a wonderful trail. Also some spots along it said it was equestrian, which I suggested an edit with. This is the third trail i've tried in the area and now my favorite.

Walked from Flos 7 to Phelpston. Trail is level and hard packed gravel, good for hiking and cycling. Lots of bugs. Church in Phelpston (St Patrick) is open in 2017 in the summer on the weekends, a lovely church. Pleasant trail with rural scenery.

A good challenge to complete in one day.

Hiked from Phelpston to Flos Road 7. Very pleasant hike. Straight and level so not a physical challenge but relaxing and very scenic.

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.

I take the trail from Phelpston to Elmvale every once and a while, it is very nice, you pass a lot of farms and go through a lot of forest, there is grass growing in the middle of the path, While I was heading back I ran over either a Mississauga Rattlesnake or a Milksnake (I didn't see it until it was too late for the snake, it was a downpour)
