A trail with amazing potential, BUT, the cities of Kitchener and Waterloo have failed to make it a priority. The trail itself is very scenic, however is is not connected. There are at least a dozen short sections along the Grand river. Hopefully one day it will be just one.

take some bird seed! the chickadees will come to you! trail is thin in parts so just be kind to cyclists. Calm and quiet trail :)

*very buggy as the bush is dense and the farmers run off area along the side has quite the stink (especially in the spring/fall). this is another trail that is susceptible to washout and could use better maintanence as the forest takes over the trail in many areas and the trail is already narrow enough (just enough room for 2 people to walk side by side). Be careful around the bridge as the footing pops up about 3.5-4" above the trail and is a severe hazard w no warning signs or bright colour markings to indicate this and when you get to the wooden bridge watch your footing as it is fairly rotten/punky in areas; not sure why this hasn't been replaced as the seniors like to use it to go across and sit at the bench while they listen to the birds/the water (and feed the chipmunks that scurry by).

I went for a leisurely run, starting at the 2.5km mark (that's where my GPS brought me). The first few kilometers were very nice and well marked. You can tell the trail is well cared for.

Unfortunately, some parts of the trail seem to go through residential backyards, an industrial area, and a maple syrup farm. I was constantly questioning if I was still on the trail. There is also a fork in the trail (if you are heading counter-clockwise) with no markers pointing you to the correct route. I chose wrong... stay left.

It might be a better experience the second time around now that I know the route, but it's nothing spectacular. Great for beginners, I suppose.

Flat easy for walking or running, and well marked.

This walking path is home to some giant, old trees and beautiful scenery. However it is a trafficked walking path whereas I prefer rugged hiking trails that is the only reason I only gave it 2 stars.

Very nice trail a little busy at times. But beautiful mature trees.
