This trail is clearly one of the best places to look for birds in Ottawa! Unfortunately, the forest is being cut down.

Thought this was a great 45 minute trail walk for my husband, my shepherds, and me. We went in mid July. Seems like it is surrounded by wet lands so probably would be muddy in spring. There was one narrow spot close to a stagnant pond area so lots of mosquitoes at this part. We hurried through, but that was the only part of trail we didn't like. The rest had nice scenery with decent trail space under a canopy of trees. We went late morning on a hot Sunday and no one else was on the trail. Saw only 1 dog dropping left behind. There was some horse manure left on trail. Overall a nice trail.

Love this trail! I use it for biking as well as walking my dog some really great look out points.

Beautiful quite trail, but easy to get lost, no helpful signs.

We did this hike the year the trail opened and were pleasantly surprised, we have returned several times since. It gives you a variety of views and was very easy to navigate. Our dog loved it and we appreciate how secluded it is.

Absolutely love the section that runs through Falls Reserve. I've hit it every year since we've been camping here. Incredibly fun zipping through on the bike. Some sections really keep you on your feet!
if you are hitting it on a bike, take the first drop cautiously!

Hazards - mosquitos, exposed tree roots on trails, and leave the toxic baneberries alone! Recommended especially in late May for wood warblers and forest flowers. Leave before 11 am to avoid the numerous off-lease dogs and their walkers. Despite these criticisms, it is a pleasant place for a nature stroll in summertime with opportunities to see turtles, frogs, birds. Pack your insect repellent!

Awesome little hike!!! My brother and his girfriend and my wife and I along with my 4 year old daughter hiked this trail with relative ease! Some challenging terrain and many bridges! We were also fortunate enough to see a beaver (I think), a deer, snakes and other woodland creatures. Highly recommend! They also have a few bathrooms for the little ones who forget to go before you leave!

This is an easy trail and beautiful. I so love meeting dogs on the trails but not happy with the fact so many dog owners in this area DO NOT pick up after there pets. Can't blame the dog. The beginning and end of trail is full of dog poo. It's one thing if the mess is off the trail but it's not fun when you have to watch where you walk on the trail. How enjoyable is that. I will not be walking this trail again.
Dog owners be respectful of others using this trail. And yes I have owned many dogs myself and I always pickup after them.

Beautiful scenery

Stunning! The first portion is a little dull (biking it would certainly cut down on time!), but once you’re past Tee Harbour, things start to get interesting. The top section would likely benefit from more trail markers, but it’s fine. The views are absolutely incredible and well worth the steep climb!

The BTA does a great job of maintaining the trail. There are some lengthy sections without access to water so plan ahead if the weather is warm. I did only camping so it made for a couple of long days to reach the next campground. Started in Wharton then to Cape Croker to McKays Harbour to Reed's Dump to Mountain Trout Camp to Cypress Lake and finished off to Tobermory. Actual terminus of Bruce Trail another few meters past the GPS coordinates of this map but otherwise accurate when we hiked it.

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 !

i went today
i didnt know it requires a permit and payement
abit to buggy for me

Great trail with plenty of gorgeous views! The area is very well maintained and fitting for a wide range of experience levels.

Lovely trail, lots of loops and tracks inside .
Easily marked
Great terrain for mountain biking or a good trail run

Do not drive down Clark road like it tells you. It told me to drive down Clark road and Clark road isn’t even a road it’s a nasty trail that looks okay in the beginning, but it’s not. Kinda nice little place to walk through. But worth the wreck vehicle.

Most of path is covered in brush as it is under used and under regeneration

its great

Beautiful trail with moderate difficulty. Enjoyed it !

Very poorly marked, many time there was a fork in the trail with no markers to help. Without this app I would have gotten off track. One good hill up and down on the trail.

The trail kicked my ass, but I want to go back when it's a little cooler. July during a heat wave was my mistake.

Nice place to walk around or for biking ...beautiful view as well..not much crowed ...enough parking space

We loved it. A nice family walk took us 3 hrs. we did all the paths. And took a lot of great pic.

We got a bit hot but there were a couple spot with a nice cool breeze. And nice people. Very clean.

Nice trail with many easy access points. I have gone about a dozen times and still continue to find news paths and views.

Reminded me of a few greats trails in Victoria BC

Great little loops. Lots of different trails and well marked. Can get a bit buggy. Seems pretty great for biking, but hikes great either way. Would mark it as easy though

Great trail didn’t see any dog poop from what I seen , bring some bug spray lol . If you just stick to the loop it’s 30-1 hour depending on how your walking .

I started at the University end and after the first farm field it closed to a very narrow path with tall grasses/weeds on both sides. That wasn’t for me so I turned back after a bit. Based on other reviews I might not have had to go too much farther before it opened up.

Well paved. Both foot and bicycle traffic. Some real elevation changes for beginners. Well kept and maintained with period stops for rest.
