Very easy walk, with many deer sightings in the early mornings. Plenty of birds, rabbits, and signs of beaver everywhere. Some noise from nearby highways, but for a city trail, the wildlife is impressive.

Great during all seasons, lots to see and a decent variation of elevation

It was mostly packed snow when I went. parking spaces were limited.

Have hiked this many times. It’s an easy flat trail up to the bridge, and after the bridge there’s usually very few people. That’s also where you’ll have a chance to spot birds on the Grand River. After the bridge the trail becomes narrower, muddier, and rootier.

Someone has fixed the starting location in All Trails. It’s correct now (from the huge parking lot behind Block Three Brewing). You can go much further than the highway 85 bridge shown on the map. Trail crosses private land through various farmers fields (please ensure gates close) and comes out at University Ave.

great time cant wait till next time

Once you pass the industrial surroundings in the beginning, it is a very peaceful trail

Loved this trail! Slippery on the rocks in the winter

Did this hike in the winter. Took the shorter scenic/lookout trail. From road to top lookout and back under 50 min in ankle deep snow wearing boots. Plenty of rabbit and deer tracks to see and spots with chickadees. Lookout allows to view Gun Lake and Rockingham Creek/lake.

I was able to follow snowmobile compacted trial others wise would have taken twice the time maybe.

Was a nice short trail.

Nice little loop, fairly well marked, little incline very easy. lots of birds and small wildlife.

great place to go in the summer is even more beautiful in the winter , found the trail to high pond lookout was a challenge but worth it

The trail was great! We made sure to not walk on the Cross County ski paths(it was super easy to stay off their tracks), but still encountered a very unpleasant vocal skier . Being considerate and respectful goes both ways ☺️
Please remember it’s a multi-use trail!

Walked along the water on a cold winter day. Beautiful and calm.

mother nature pretty much cleared away presumably for building purposes...

the trail starts away from the naming sign ( continue down 12th line to the green sign for 3332 12th line). initially, there is an uphill slog that makes you wonder about terrain, but you must come down gradually as you make the loop. to the left is the well traversed uphill where you will eventually ramble below a few fallen trees. nothing crazy, but you need to be reasonably mobile. there are a few fallen trees to the right from the entrance loop (or off the finish if you go left). I got lucky and was mostly able to follow a snowmobile/Nordic ski track. it was just near the finish where a large tree had fallen that I lost track of other's tracks. if you're headed here soon take long snow pants as the snow is deep (especially where it hasn't been trodden over). fabulous trail with beautiful tall pine. at the top of the initial climb there is a great view to both left and right where the terrain drops away.

Loved it!!!

So beautiful. Despite the cold temperatures and wind it was very sheltered within the trails.
