This is a really nice hike in a hilly, mostly hardwood forest. And, you can easily vary or add on to hike by going down numerous trails that hook up to other areas.

I decided to come here for a hike in early to mid December for a chance to escape the busyness of life, and it didn’t disappoint. As a part of the privately owned Bruce Trail, the paths are well maintained. The views along the river were wonderful, the ruin later on the loop is quite cool to visit, and the trail is not overly difficult for the average hiker. It was an enjoyable hike and one I’d recommend! (One caveat: parking along Britannia Road is quite scarce and would be almost impossible on a beautiful spring, summer or fall day. And from Lowville, finding the entrance to the trail is difficult. Be wary of the difficulty of parking when coming here.)

An incredible view with interesting side trails. Well marked and easy to follow, I'm excited to try it out again!

Easy terrain, but in this cold weather we encountered ice, snow, and quite a bit of mud. The mud and ice were both slippery. Our hiking poles helped keep us from slipping. The Falls were definitely the highlight!

Good trail. Markings can be confusing for some. Some spots can be muddy even days after last rainfall.

Overall an enjoyable hike in the middle of a city.

My fav is the orange trail. Lots of geocaches to find throughout the whole area. Beautiful trails. The only downfall is people don't have their dogs on leashes and they leave dog poop behind :(

Nice lit up. There’s a beaver dam as well.

In keeping my promise to continue to hike all winter despite cold and snow this trail still was a winner. Light falling snow made for a beautiful hike. I did all the trails once again. Beaver Trail and Loop d Loop were wet so they were more of a challenge having to go slightly off trail to stay dry. Also probably very dirty if you took your dog. Loop d Loop is a good workout so don't skip it just to avoid a little water. All trails are wide and clear and trees are well marked making it still very easy to navigate with snow cover. Can't wait to return with snow shoes.

Trail is doable in one day if you have 2 vehicles, wouldn’t recommend but doable. Hoorigan bay has a fantastic beach and would highly recommend a swim.

Great day hike. Hard to swim there due to the rocks. If you continue around the bay you’ll find yourself at some old fishing cabins. Trail is a little hard to navigate once you head north from the picnic tables but the few at the fishing cabins is great.

The route shown on the map actually includes the Riverside Trail (which has not been maintained) but continues to be very popular with trail runners. The Mast Trail Loop being bounded between the Little Rouge Creek & Rouge River enjoys ridges that overlooks these waterways. As a result numerous secondary trails exist that create challenging hill climbs from the low lying areas to the tops of he ridges. The former Caper Valley Ski hill is just one of them. These primary and secondary trails if linked correctly create a challenging 10 km loop with six aggressive hill climbs.

Great place to tire my dog out on a Saturday morning. Always run into other dogs off leash who are friendly and who’s owners are responsible. Some sections of the trail need some love to fix erosion and areas that are overgrown.

Great trail to walk after it's snowed!

One of the hidden gems of London, Ontario. In the spring you will see toads, butterflies etc - very special. If you want to make it a longer walk with your dog, park at the dog park, walk down the paved path, cross the bridge then enter the woods. I take a hiking pole for this one as there are a few ups and downs.

Great trail, nice and quiet, you will forget you're in the city. There are some hilly bits and some stairs so bear that in mind.

Great place to walk, with or without a dog (I am usually with!) If you park at the old buildings behind Parkwood Hospital (Commissioners, a bit west of Adelaide), you can enjoy walking in either direction, see one of the more beautiful ponds, and also see some old foundations of buildings being overgrown ... very nice. The entrance to the trail is to the east, just off the paved loop around the old foundations.

You don't need an app to use this trail. Simply park at the east end of Windermere - it dead ends at the entrance to the trail. There is a paved walking path with many little trails running off it, and they loop around each other, or terminate back at the paved path, or lead to the houses that surround this area. Easy. You can't get lost, it's not that big. I walk there 2-3 times per week with my dog. It's easy walking with no hills and no roots across the path to trip over.

Beautiful trail along river and through parks

Parts of this trail are very interesting but it is almost all paved and there is too much time walking on roadways. The trail was closed in a couple places forcing us back onto roads. Probably a good route to bike.

A nice foested trail that makes you feel like you are in a remote area and not the city. Some parts of the route are closed so route adjustments may be necessary.

Love this trail. Great for all ages, just be careful with young children since it's on the edge of the escarpment. Beautiful views all the way through, starts with a loud waterfall and ends with a birds eye view of Dundas Valley. There are a couple side trails and are definitely worth taking if you have the time. Take caution during winter and after rainfalls as it can get muddy and slippery! As long as you're aware of your surroundings and being safe you will make it home happy and smiling.

This is a nice trail, very scenic with views of Tews falls, unfortunately the trail to Webster's falls has been cut off.

A nice day walk, very easy

It's an okay trail, take your time and listen

Love the way the forest changes as you walk. The highway is right next to the trail — the hum of traffic is always there.

Cute little trail with several little points of interest on route. Very cool old weapons storage barrack, gigantic kiln and lots of cute bridges and streams. Very icy though at points. Only saw one other couple. Saturday morning 8am.

We enjoyed the trails and met a lot of friendly dogs walking their humans Lol. Will definitely be making this trail a part of our regular routine.

Great trip late October 2018. Ran into one other hiker about midway. Found out later he got taken out by helicopter after getting about 4” of snow. The trail is quite hard to find in the middle section, so I can see how he got himself in trouble. Fortunately he was uninjured. We had five in our group and at times we had to split up a bit to find the next marker. I had a gps with me so I had pre marked where I parked on the west side at Victoria Falls. I’d recommend doing the same.

Nothing challenging about this one if you are in good shape. It’s a nice walk through the woods along the river. Trail crosses the river every now and then over little bridges. Very nice!
