One of our favorite trails near Stouffville. Have visited 3 times this Winter. There is still some ice on the steep hill half way around and is somewhat treacherous. Still recommend crampons.

Excellent trail for the family that follows along Whiteman's Creek. We were there at the end of winter in March after the great flood of 2018. The creek has many large log dams due to the recent flood. Very picturesque creek though. There is also a bridge going over Whiteman's Creek near the Nature Center and another trail can be taken there that goes along the north side of the creek.

Beautiful and very clean. Trail is well marked and very clear. It’s pretty much all uphill the whole time but it’s pretty gradual and manageable. May not be great for seniors or small kids. But, We’re not exactly in the best shape and it wasn’t really a struggle at all for us. We went on a nice warm day in March so it wasn’t icy and whatever ice was there was pretty slushy so it wasn’t a problem. Be mindful of ice if you’re going in the winter- this trail would be pretty hard with the ice! Great trail for running.

Nice groomed trail for a nice winter walk. Love that the trail goes in the forest and not just around it. Was very peaceful as we only saw one couple the whole afternoon that we were there.

Great start at Powerline then turns flat .Lots of cool spots to look at and some small off trail worth exploring.

the winter maintenance on this road stops About 2 km from the parking lot with a large snowbank blocking the road so you cant access the parking lot.

Easy walking ended up being 7.6km in length. The boardwalk makes it easy to do.

The parking lot was not plowed so we parked on the road (it was not a big deal since it was a quite area). The trail was short, 2km, so we did it twice. We really enjoyed it and I would go back to explore it again and other trails nearby. Some locals we talked to said there were longer trails just east of this location.

Beautiful trail hike in March...will go again for sure.

nice open trails and easy to follow

Nice winter easy winter trail. Also good for Nordic cross country skiing. Trails are relatively flat. Great for viewing birds!

Decent outing but the cliffs were a little underwhelming - even by southern ontario standards. Still made for an enjoyable hike

For what and where it is, beautiful spot year round. On rare occasion you might even spot some interesting wildlife! Trail is super easy, definitely not “moderate”

This used to be one my favourite local spots. Back in 2012-2013 I would have given this a solid 5/5 star rating. The trail since then has been seriously overused and suffers from lots of erosion (the whitevale section in particular). And now a construction site for a new subdivision boarders the southern portions of the trail.

Late sept - oct is the best time to go, as the mosquitos & deerfly are BRUTAL throughout summer.

Having said all that, the trail does have nice sections especially in late fall and early spring. If you do the whole trail return trip is 5-7 hours pending on your pace, which is longer than most of the other trails within the area.

Amazing in autumn if hiking the bruce trail, but can’t imagine coming through in spring or during a wet summer. Combined it with Rockway Conservation Area for a full day

Not sure why the error, but the previous review refers to the wrong trail. Maple Keys Sugar Bush Conservation Area is nowhere near Clinton, Ont. or the Hullet Marsh area. It is south east of Molesworth on Maple Keys Line. I have just returned from a winter hike and found it peaceful and beautiful, although the trail is poorly marked and I found myself walking much farther than the 1 km estimate given. It does cover a wide variety of ecosystems and is of moderate difficulty. Boardwalks through wetlands are in bad shape, which I suspect is due to recent flooding. There are 2 linear trails which could rather easily be connected for a longer loop. Hopefully the MVCA will be making this a reality in the near future. I look forward to returning in the spring.

Been coming here since I was a child, great hike. The full beaver damn trail - hilton falls - bears bathtub route will take you about 4 hours at a leisurely pace.

Great hike, cool boardwalk around the lake. Make sure you check out the long houses.

Today we went with our 3 dogs and had a great time, it was clean snow and clear markings of the trail.

A nice little trail with lots of creeks and little log bridges but just waaaay too much car noise from the nearby highway and county road. Once we got up the ridge a bit and away from the roads it was really nice though with some nice song birds. Lots of great downed trees and gnarled trunks. Some great trees for 10-15ft climbs to have a break and swing your feet. Will come back when the snow is gone to get into those trees!

Great trail to go with your dog! Nice easy elevations and well kept trails. Everything is VERY well marked and is very clean. $20 entry for three adults. The Hilton falls loop is a bit busy but once you get onto beaver dam trail it gets quieter. Watch out for bikers and share the trail!

It's a pretty good trail. Not super difficult, but it could be marked a bit better. There are lots of intersections which gets a little confusing.

Easy and scenic for Toronto!

I did this trail February 2018. I loved it! It's probably more beautiful in the summer. Cambridge waterfall was in the vicinity. It had a few muddy spots. It's also part of the Bruce trail and crossed paths with other trails.

Absolutely beautiful trails! The view is spectacular from the cliff top!

A really great 2 hour walk with lots of beautiful natural features like downed trees. Lots of little creeks and ponds to poke with sticks! Lol. My daughter and I had a great time trying to guess the animal tracks! And inventing our own possible animal answers!! Lol. Definitely a nice winter hike! Agreed with another reviewer who said it’ll be amazing in spring. Will definitely be back!
