Fantastic trail, although I pout when I see how busy it's become.

Overnight camping is lovely, although it's becoming increasingly difficult to find fuel for fires at campsites. Keep in mind that while not an operating park you can still be fined for cutting down live vegetation. The wardens are cool, but they are serious about their park.

Enjoy the trail, but for the love of God, please help us keep it 'wild'. Pack in, pack out. Follow 'Leave No Trace' principles.

Nice if you get out early - sadly lots of dog owners with no respect for leash rules .. really frustrating to be chased and jumped on by dogs. Nice tho if you can’t get out of town to other trails

I arrived around 10am on a cold but sunny Saturday in January and the hike was wonderful. I only saw two other people the entire time I was there and they were just heading in as I was heading out. The waterfalls in the winter are amazing, and the lookout was quite nice as well.

Tip for beginners : walk on the far sides of the trail to get a footing on solid ground, and not slip.

Nice forested walk with litigation side trails to explore.

We did about 2.5km of this trail and made it as far as the old military radar tower. Beautiful scenery and trail was not difficult at all. Our kids came with us and enjoyed it as well. We plan to see more of the trail soon.

Beautiful trail that provides a great workout with its many ups and downs. we have hiked it many times , spring ,summer and fall and each season offers its own charm. Fall is perfect since there are very few bugs .
make sure you're wearing good foot wear due to the uneven ,rocky terrain. The long loop takes about 2 hours, the short loop 1 hour.

Some would call me an idiot for hiking alone, some would call me an idiot for hiking in the winter while pregnant (there’s ice on the hill especially); but sometimes a hiker’s gotta hike.
Beautiful day to be out and a great loop to get some exercise.

Really enjoyed this trail, although it was a total challenge. We only managed to get out there in early November and we committed to hiking it in one day. We were able to complete it in just under 5 hours, but that was really pushing it because we were short on daylight. I wouldn't recommend a November hike because it was also very swampy. But the stony elevations and the views and the micro-environments were fantastic. Challenging but satisfying!

What a great experience! We loved the boardwalk loop and all other trails it leads off too!

Such a great walk! Got stuck trying to do the Bruce loop with a dog but found our way around it :) On my list for the summer time!

The sugar shack loop was my favourite part! Seeing the old, dilapidated shack was interesting. Walking along the old stone farm fences at the end of the hike was a nice change of scenery too.

Nice, wide and well maintained trail. It is well used so a bit busy with joggers and bikers even early in the morning. The loop was convenient with a possibility to extend the hike into other branching trails in the area that are a bit quieter.

well marked and wide trail with plenty of loops. we missed a turn and took a nice stroll down a quiet road for a bit, which was also perfectly pleasant. muddy in the rainy season.

Excellent trail! Absolutely beautiful in the winter and very easy to navigate. I would definitely recommend checking this one out!

Hiking this trail for 25 years. Loveliest in the fall but also heavily trafficked at that time. Shame about the break in the trail at the fall viewing area as the outer loop was great but you “can” be a scofflaw and jump the fence (a little treacherous in winter and tricky with two large dogs) or see the falls (south-west approach, generally clockwise loop) and then return, re-climb the hill, and hike the upper trail back (sticking to the left) and down the stairs. Official parking (north east corner) is $5.25 for 2 hrs. Or you can hike in along th Cataract trail from Mississauga Rd. I’ve never tried parking at Dominion rd (residential private dead end).

Quiet, nature filled quick wander.

Busy, nice view of Detroit skyline.

This ski trail is always well groomed. Excellent facility.

I hike this trail often with my dog. This trail offers ease of access and is an excellent beginners trail with a spectacular view. As often as I’ve walked the Hawkes Ridge Trail, it never seems to get old.

Things to remember;
1. Definitely bring a camera.
2. You may want to consider water/mud resistant footwear as there are two areas that can be a little muddy. No big deal if you forget, you can easily go around.

this trail is in Windsor, Ontario and not in Sutherland, as Sutherland is 100km northeast of Toronto

This is the best trail

It's okay for being located in the middle of a city. It's a good place to go if you like dogs or have a dog. To get inside the forest trail takes a little bit and is usually pretty busy.

I take my dog to this park a lot! There are 2 big ponds for them to swim in. A lot of dog and people interaction. Good trails for walking. There are a fair bit of bikers, so if your dog is nervous around them be ware. Overall a great place to check out!!

Easy trail. Nice views especially in the winter when trees are leaf bare.
