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.

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.
