Great walk, beautiful weather. The trail is nice and wides.

Great shady trail!!! Plan to go there again.

Beautiful trail with a pond along the path. Dog and horse friendly.

great trial but a lose dog on the trail with no owner in sight intimated my dog so forced us to walk off the trial as it was barking and growling.

really nice trail, some rolling hills to climb and decend, there is also a pond. the trail is mostly sand, which is easy on the feet. the main parking lot is off of HWY 48, NO Washroom facilities at this trail. not overly crowded but we did pass a few people on our hike. I would have given it a 5 but the trails are loaded with horse droppings, we took a side narrow trail that we figured the horses would not be on but they were actually worse!!! There was enough I felt to kind of spoil the scenery as we had to keep an look out for the landmines left by the horses

lovely. simple. easy to walk and nagaviate.

No one was there on a weekday. Easy, lovely trail.

love it so far

Checkout wild raspberries and elderberries on the sides. Watch for small snakes. I saw one by the little water body.

I absolutely love this trail ! It has tons of shade as the trees loop together form the top and keeps it nice and cool in the summer . It’s both baby and dog friendly ! Our family loves it !

This was a pleasant surprise for us as we had planned to go
to Secord. It was busy with an organized run. In any event we were just starting west on Vivian Road and decided to go South on Mc Cowan. There were cars parked on the side òf the road when we noticed the entrance to Scout. It was a last minute decision to try it. We passed very occasional walkers and came upon the lakes. As I said before it was a pleasant surprise. I'm glad we left Secord for this new adventure.

1) It should be noted that there isn’t an outhouse or porta potty or washroom facility at this location. We made the mistake of arriving while having to pee. 2) Aside from that it was the perfect location for a lovely walk in the woods. The trails are big and beautiful and the canopy (mostly) keeps you out of direct sunlight. 3) We will definitely be going back!

Great place with multiple marked trails! Snow during March and low traffic around 3pm

Walked it on March 30th. Not too muddy (only a few spots). Wide paths or narrow ones. Trees are just beautiful!

A pleasant afternoon and a nice place to walk. Mostly easy with a few small hills on the east side near the 9th line. There are still some icy spots, most can be walked around. We enjoyed it and will likely go back.

Very nice trail for a run. Sandy in parts which means you get a better workout! Lots of side trails - I almost got lost while running it for the first time late in the evening. Looking forward to exploring them further...in the daylight of course!

One of my favourite trails for a run. Lots of tree cover therefore no need for running sunglasses. Very flat except for a hill at the far end of the loop as you turn around to head back. Plenty of parking.

Solid 3k trail for an out and back run. Parking on the road at entrance.
Turn your run into a 5k by adding on an additional 2k loop (entrance across the street about 100 meters north)

Numerous loops throughout the area. Nice wide sandy trails for runners, hiking and biking with some narrower side trails for some easy single track. Dog friendly for friendly dogs.

Had a blast on the trail with my family. My grandma with her walker loved it. The lake was gorgeous and close to the parking lot too. Lots to see
