on George Island Trail

7 hours ago

Poorly marked trail with a high mosquito burden given wetland areas but overall a great experience. came across many animals (deers, porcupine, wild fowl, heron) over varied terrains. Would do it again!

The mainland to George island is only about 100 m but there is a ferry service with the sportsman inn that can take you across and back for $3 (call 7052879990). The trail takes about 3.5 hours.

have fun!

This was a beautiful trail. It was quite rocky and had some steep inclines and declines in areas. Probably not suitable for all ages, more of a moderate difficulty trail. We went in July: it was pretty buggy (flies more than anything) and the trail was pretty overgrown in some areas and had some trees blocking the trail. But it was a great way to be active and had some beautiful sights along the way! We saw lots of birds, butterflies and a few bunnies too. There was a nice visitors center before the trail head to park your car at, use the restroom, and grab some maps!

Beautiful trail!!! Can’t believe it’s in the middle of suburbia. Lots of ups & downs. Great exercise. Although we didn’t follow this trail exact as there are lots of different trails. Well marked.

Quite flat, easy trail

It just happened to be free Provincial Park day! We had a great walk around the lake. The trail was mostly level. Watch out for the big tree roots!

Rated this hike low due to the annoying flies that bit & followed us the whole way even though we doused ourselves with bug spray. Nice lake views. Would be better to do in the spring or fall. I like shaded trails & this trail is open.

Sketchy AF!!!! There is a board walk style part of his trail that is missing tons of boards with massive nails sticking up !! Dog poop every where on the trail too !!! The bridges were scary dangerous . This trail is extremely un kept !! I will never never come back her again !!

Great trail with gorgeous views as a reward at the end. Did the hike with my Australian Shepherd, so it is a very dog friendly hike.

Love the trail but very grassy in spots my dog got a tick so be careful and check you and your pets!!!!

Beautiful look out over the lake, different foliage and terrain throughout the walk.

Awesome trial close to home

Good wide easy trail for walking, running, rollerblading, biking- just about anything - I saw no horses
Beach all the way along path, which continues into Burlington.
If you are lucky, you will get to see lift Bridge in action - awesome

Was there recently and the trail was seriously overgrown and there is Giant Hogweed around the northern part of the trail. Construction under the 407 also makes it difficult to access. We did however see a beaver.

Have to start at Tews Falls parking lot and not Webster’s Falls. The trail between Webster’s Falls and Tews Falls is closed. Otherwise great hike.

This trail is not well maintained or marked. We ended up getting lost and walking most of it on the road till we found another entry point to finish it off.
Very buggy. Make sure you take bug spray. The parts of the trail that are groomed are nice for walking on. But the parts not are like going thru the jungle.

My go to woodlot. So much to see and do on these trails. 100% recommend. If your new to hiking, keep track of which turns you take and there are many side trails to wonder off to.

Amazing woodlot, lots to see and so many hiking and biking trails. If you want to see some unique landscape with a easy to moderate trail (moderate due to the length of trails and connection to other trails) Ive heard porcupines and coyotes here, seen tree frogs, spring peepers, deer and foxes. biting bugs can be VERY BAD in the spring. Bug spray wont do anything to stop the clouds of mosquitos. So if you dont like getting bit, wait until bug season is pretty well over or go on a day thats cool and rainy.

Pretty easy trail, went to a more un used entry point. Lovely escarpment trail with a lovely bio diversity

Pretty easy trail, good for hiking and connects to many other tracks in the woods. Hunting is permitted during hunting season.
Some good birdwatching, not the best. Some nice species such as pileated wood peckers, wood thrush and a variety of warblers. The occasional least and american bitterns as well as pie billed grebes in the marshes.

Great easy trail with wide pathways if you have a larger group. The overall hike was short but if you prefer waterfalls then it's a great place to go.

Challenging hike overall - lots of rocks to climb over and through with steep ascension close to the lookout. Absolutely amazing view at the top and worth the challenge. Saw families and dogs on the trail. You’ll need a partner to help your dog over the toughest points to avoid injury. Going down is tricky so make sure you take your time. A bucket list hike for any nature lover!

Amazing trail but bugs can get bad when walking or running it

Amazing views! Long hike.

on Spirit Rock Trail

Okay trail, make sure to follow the trail on top of the cliff to get to the lookout. We followed the lake which was much better, but was not spirit rock.

Nice trail, not too muddy at this time of the year. Some bugs, but I have seen worse. Had a really good time with the girlfriend !! :)

This hike is a gem for this small town! It’s actually surprising for how big the forest and trail is. A nice non difficult hike with a small river flowing mid way. No lookout points, just a nice stroll.

Such an awesome moderate trail, with a great view at the top. Went about a year ago, before they made you pay. If it rained the day before, there’s a couple muddy and slippery areas.

Entry points onto the trail were not clearly marked. We couldn’t find access along Constance so we drove further and ended up parking and walking in off Lakeshore Road and Armiger Lane but had to ask for directions to get there. The path is beautiful - flat and wide - with lots of wildlife (woodpeckers, cardinals, chipmunks and squirrels). It runs along a shallow section of Sixteen Mile Creek. We went mid-day, mid-week and didn’t see anyone else on the trail. Mix of dirt path and paved trails. Bring bug spray!

Nice trail to get out for a few hours
