Nice trail for children and the whole family. There are trees on either sides which makes it more pleasant. There is paved trail right across the road from that one too.

A little windy with the open fields but overall a good trail. I started on University and only did 1.5km in before turning back to do a 3k loop.

Gorgeous year round. Can’t wait to go back in the summer. Offers easier and more difficult trails.

Cute little falls great year round!

Nice trail, paved and goes through nice areas. Continent to get to as well!

the trails were absolutely gorgeous. if you're looking for a pretty easy walk or trail run with an amazing view this is the place!

Snow was pretty deep, but amazing non the less!

-10C with a strong wind out of the west made it pretty hard going with drifting snow across the trail, particularly in those sections of trail that were exposed to the open fields. Never the less it was an enjoyable outing. I will be sure to return in better weather to complete the full out and back.

Have hiked this many times. It’s an easy flat trail up to the bridge, and after the bridge there’s usually very few people. That’s also where you’ll have a chance to spot birds on the Grand River. After the bridge the trail becomes narrower, muddier, and rootier.

Someone has fixed the starting location in All Trails. It’s correct now (from the huge parking lot behind Block Three Brewing). You can go much further than the highway 85 bridge shown on the map. Trail crosses private land through various farmers fields (please ensure gates close) and comes out at University Ave.

This is a very busy trail . It follows a stagnant millrace into St Jacobs . You could piece this together with the Health Valley trail to make a days outing . In itself it is not long enough for backpacking but together it should make for a challenging enough trek . Not for the hard core hiker . Cheers .

The dam is currently closed so until May it isn't really a loop. The trail does have muddy sections (20 ft lengths, 4 inches deep or so) the day after rain.

But that being said it is a well maintained trail running along the edges of farm land, residential spaces, light industrial and a lake. Easy walk.

absolutely beautiful!☺

We got onto some side trails- Hoggs Lower and Upper trails. It was beautiful hike, longer then we expected but our own fault as we didn't really know where we were going. Walked a good part of the Bruce Trail as well.

Pretty but too short...

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).

this is an ok trail - needs to be maintained better as the trail has very narrow/washed out areas which could result in injury (things to look out for: large farmers field rocks, all kinds of horse poop on the trail, deep mucky paths, thick woody weeds blocking the path, all kinds of unleashed dogs - on the non leash free areas, etc).

Great trail!

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.

Beautiful waterfall and trail. Whole family enjoyed if.

Flat easy for walking or running, and well marked.

A trail to walk, not a spot to hike. But the scenery is beautiful, especially in the fall. Awesome spot for photography!

Love the view from the falls and walking the trail on up the hill on the other side of the water is quite a hike but beautiful view at the top.
