We loved it. A nice family walk took us 3 hrs. we did all the paths. And took a lot of great pic.

We got a bit hot but there were a couple spot with a nice cool breeze. And nice people. Very clean.

I've done this trail 3x and every time I've ended up somewhere completely different. Lots of forks and turns so it's easy to not follow the loop.
It's an excellent hike but if it wasn't for this app, we would have been totally lost. I need to work on my navigational skills!
I hiked this with a 3-year-old in a back carrier and it was fine (and I'm not that athletic or strong by any stretch).
Great trail for "real" hiking!

Nice little walk, especially the harder to find off-park trail through the woods.

Bottom half from East Don to Cummer is paved and more well travelled. North end from Cummer to Finch is woodland path and quieter.

Went for an afternoon hike. It was with lots of up hills, downhills. Some part of the trail goes by the river. There was lots of wild life and different type of wild flowers. It was overall a good hike. Definitely recommend and will do it again.

its not a bad short hike if you are in the area, the trail is part paved and part gravel (kitty litter) allot of thick bush, not very scenic but nice on a hot summer day as most of is shaded from the trees, the trail runs along a man made drainage culvert that is made to look like a creek

There are hills. The views are alright. Free parking.

good for walking

good trail

liked it. the unpaved sections are especially nice. some paths are narrow, some wider, all in all not difficult and offers good options for whoever want to hike, casual walk, cycle and jog. saw a big and beautiful deer jumping in the river. will go back for sure.

Free parking. If you take the loop starting from the west side, can avoid hill climb lol. Initially near highway and can hear it, but eventually end up in nice forests with no sounds. Lovely 5km.

As a trail was decent to run. It was not marked as well as could have been desired as such ended up adding distance to our overall run (not a bad thing, but unexpected). There needs to be more identifiable markings for the loop.

Went april 22, 2018 and trails were flooded and muddy. The banks along the Rouge River have collapsed due to high water levels. Also there are notices of ticks. If you have a dog i suggest not bringing them due to the ticks and mud

Visit today 1st time for a trail running and have a fun time. Beautiful scenery with some good technical uphill, downhill, muddy, stony road and single lane. Some obstacles and in forest on the hill you can run around off-trail and run on branch and tree. Still very muddy and wet on the ground with some fallen trees, but that's what's trail running for. Definitely come back to explore and run again.

BTW, some of the trail marking is not clear, just be caution.

Did about 5km with the family (husband, wife, two girls and our pup). We stayed on the main trail and then kept going and found this great little place under a railroad bridge that also provided great views of the Rouge Creek. It was perfect for setting up a little camp for lunch. Very few people, but may be due to time of year. There are well maintained parts and also side trails that make you forget you are pretty much surrounded by the urban sprall. Recommend for a 2-3 hour getaway.

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”

beautiful scenery in the winter time. easy trail with variety and multiple paths. campground parking was the best option for us, great hills and sledding spots.

Great local wooded trail, other then the sound of the odd lawnmower from the houses on the top of the ravine you feel like you're in the middle of much larger forest. I went on a colder fall morning so there wasn't much traffic....definitely going back

This trail blows all other Toronto trails I've walked out of the water. This is a real forest. Real animals (other than squirrels) live here (including lots of birds). Although you never get away from the hum of the highway, I can see why they almost turned this area is being turned into a national urban park.

The trail gets a fair bit of use. A downside in a more nature setting but perhaps gives you a bit of comfort in an urban park.

One negative: the trail needs signage and maps!

Great forest trail close to Toronto with a surprising amount of wildlife. The forest seemed open and inviting. The sound of the highway nearby was the only thing to remind you you were in the city. We stayed close to the ridge line which gave interesting views through the forest into the valley. The trail had a number of branches and side trails to wander down.

Great trail for running. Good straight aways, challenging hill climb and a good length for a short high intensity run.
