What a great experience! We loved the boardwalk loop and all other trails it leads off too!

It's okay for being located in the middle of a city. It's a good place to go if you like dogs or have a dog. To get inside the forest trail takes a little bit and is usually pretty busy.

What a gem! I was so pleasantly surprised by all that I found upon arriving at the entrance gate to the conservation area. I paid the entry fee of $7 for one adult and parked the car in the spacious parking lot.
The trail head gave great direction to 3 wide and well marked trails in 3 different lengths. I chose the longest ( purple 8 km round trip) This was obviously the less traveled of the 3 but was wide and clear and mostly flat with forest, and a few ponds to view. Around the halfway point was a fire pit, picnic tables and plenty of fire wood. A great place to stop and warm up and have lunch and due to the longer trail and distance there are very few children.
The yellow trail was very flat and very smooth and possibly acceptable for a fitness strolled. Lots of families and children were on this trail. Along the way was a rest room and several random table to stop and take a break.
Upon arriving at the falls there are several tables and a big fire pit with plenty of seating and wood to burn.
There is a set of stairs that take you down to the bottom of the falls and is a great place to take photos.
This trail was not a difficult or strenuous trail but beautiful.

Things to bring: marshmallows, hot dogs, bird seed to hand feed the birds.

I give this trail 1 star simply for the fact that it is $7/person to enter! Considering all the free options, I would never recommend this to anyone. 4 of us drove here without any forewarning and were shocked that we would have to pay $28. Would have really appreciated a note about this from someone on Alltrails so here it is now. Consider Waterdown trail 20 mins away..FYI it is free.

It’s a decent moderate trail. Lots of little side trails to get lost exploring. I’ve one gone once. My rating might go up.

Great views! We went in January so there weren’t huge crowds. Maybe a dozen people passed in the 4 hour hike. Would definitely go again.

Out on this trail today with a friend; absolutely beautiful. Definitely very muddy in parts but completely tolerable if you’re wearing proper hiking shoes. Trails are well marked but make sure you’re paying attention and have time to go to Crawford loop - we went out in afternoon and didn’t notice we made wrong turn and ended up in Crawford trails (only planned on 7.8 loop) - our loop turned into a 16k - we started later in day so we’re worried about losing sunlight. That was our bad though and still a beautiful detour. Look forward to doing this again.

Many trails, many levels of hiking. Always a great place to go.

Very cute short trail - great for kids.

Great for fall, summer and winter hiking!!!!

Great trail. My question is: If the trail is signed not for biking, why are there reviews about biking the trail?

From the very first time here I was hooked ... great trail with side spurts and very low traffic so it seams like your very own property ... one of my favourite trails in the Province ... ENJOY !

Trail was incredibly difficult for me as a novice mountain biker, lots of really steep inclines over medium sized rocks and loose gravel. Spent most of the time walking our bikes. Was there in the summer 2018.

Love this trail. Better used earlier if you want to avoid crowds. It’s our go-to to walk the dog.

The path to the falls is a nice walk, lots of birds to see, take some seed to coax them down, there are fire pits at the falls for roasting marshmallows and warming up in the winter time

An incredible view with interesting side trails. Well marked and easy to follow, I'm excited to try it out again!

Love this trail. Great for all ages, just be careful with young children since it's on the edge of the escarpment. Beautiful views all the way through, starts with a loud waterfall and ends with a birds eye view of Dundas Valley. There are a couple side trails and are definitely worth taking if you have the time. Take caution during winter and after rainfalls as it can get muddy and slippery! As long as you're aware of your surroundings and being safe you will make it home happy and smiling.

This is a nice trail, very scenic with views of Tews falls, unfortunately the trail to Webster's falls has been cut off.

Well great hike. From rattlesnake to Crawford lake. 13.54 km. But I forgot to turn off the app on the way to dinner. Oooops!

We started early just stopped raining a couple of hours ago. It made no difference, it was an easy hike, yes with some very muddy places between rattlesnake and Crawford lake on the orange trail. But nothing anyone would cry over. At some points we thought the mud would have eaten our boots. It was just so funny. We did the board walk trail around the lake. It was so nice to hear laughing and giggling all the way to the other side.
We had lunch and a good break at the visitors area at Crawford centre and we were ready for the return hike.
Lots of people everywhere, nice to see families even with strollers which I wouldn’t recommend, but everyone was having fun. At the end skies cleared and were amazing spots for photos.

Nice hike with lots of shade, equal flats and ups&downs. Started from Crawford lake to Rattlesnake point and back

A good hike from Crawford lake to Rattlesnake point and back

A little confusing on how the trails were marked. We started with a little mist and high 2 degrees but it didn’t matter.
We did extra km than what we expected but had a great time in such a beautiful place.

Nice fall family walk to the falls and back. Wide flat trail makes it an easy outing. Fire pit at the falls is an amazing payoff for the kids if you remember to pack the marshmallows!

Loved hiking it during fall and seeing the beautiful autumn leaves. What a pretty hike.

A nice easy hike / walk through the forest, with some great views over the escarpment.

Several nice trails to explore. We will be back this winter to try out the skiing. There is an entrance fee if you don't have a pass.
