Liked the variety of forest, and swamp life.

Nice surface variety, well marked, lots of natural habitat

Cute little forest hike. Veryyy easy and quick. Shorter than you’d think. We loved that it’s dog-friendly, but wish we’d tacked on a longer/harder trail for hiking (this loop is a walk, not a hike). Beautiful scenery :)

The trail was awesome, bring some nuts or seeds with you and the squirrel, chipmunks and birds will literally eat from your hand, one of the nicest kid friendly walks in Ottawa!!!?!?!?

great for kids

Really nice trail for a jog!

Awesome trail. Rockhopper lives up to its name. Klondike part is easy but the Rockhopper part has lots of rocks and roots. Even some small inclines and declines. I got turned around a bit when I wa going back to the Klondike Trail so I did a bit extra. Rockhopper even goes by a pond at point. Great trail!

Easy trail for a family with lots of options to make it shorter if required. Watch the map closely as there are lots of intersections

Great view peaceful walk.

An easy and short trail through mostly forest with a creek running nearby. It connects up with other trails at the far end. I saw a couple of deer at the far end. Very accessible for wheel chairs and parents with strollers I would say.

A fun hike though the Forest. It was cool in that part of it follows the Rideau Trail for a while so you get to follow the orange blazes. Bring Bug repellant in the summer.

A really nice hike with views of the Rideau River and a bridge. Highly recommend for the family!

Great place to take a family walk within the city limits.

There is No picnic tables.
There is an outhouse across the road.

Meh. A short hike through forest. Glad I had bug repellant.

Clean and well taken care of trails. Well marked, flat with good look outs and spots for the dogs to take a dip.

good trail. nice 1 hour total with the ruins included. lots to see, variety of scenery with a very easy path to follow.

My first trail using the Alltrails app. An easy 800m jaunt.

Awesome trail with lots of variety. Some parts are wide and easy and some are windy. Some ruins are here too. Definitely recommend trying it! Unfortunately there was a young female who had her car broken into at the parking lot. The thief stole her wallet. I felt bad for her because she was from Fredericton, NB.

Beautiful easy and short trail that walks through forest and over boardwalks in the swampy areas. Great place for a family walk!

Nice trail for the first part. Towards the far end the vegetation gets thick and there are some muddy parts so progress slows. There are some beautiful views of Mud Lake and wetlands. Definitely worth exploring!

Beautiful day, dry. Lots of bugs - bring bug spray

Beautiful trial in the woods with some awesome views of swamp/wetlands areas. There is a Wild Birdcare Centre here too. The trail is easy and great for anyone or a family to come explore!

•There are no picnic tables.
•No out houses.

I was at the Bruce Pit dog park it is a spacious area the path is mainly flat and accessible for people with mobility issues. There is a nice, tall canopy forested area in the back on the right side many trees have space between them to let the air to flow making it comfortable walking your dogs and you too.

An easy 4.2 km loop. Glad I had bug repellant! A little boggy in some places and forest in others. Some really nice views of the Ottawa River!

For travelling on foot this trail sucks! Too many cyclists. There are better trails to walk or hike on than this. There are some parts downtown though that are good to walk on but most of it should be left for the cyclists. It is a great trail to bike on though.

Near flat so 3 stars as not challenging. It’s definitely easy. But very beautiful! You can make it longer by adding in extra trails.

not a bad trial. nice quick walk with the dog and kids. the kids enjoyed sitting on the rocks watching the water.
