Beautiful trail, would rate this easy not moderate! Falls was flowing!! It was pretty awesome! Fire pit at the top if you want to sit and have lunch! Wood was provided! Very nice place!!

Did this walk/hike about 4/5 weeks ago and there was a lot of mud (to be expected)! It was still exhilarating and fabulous! Caves, a quarry, lovely look-out area and little brooks. Can’t wait to do it over and over again and of course to experience it now in the spring. My watch said we did 9km in total.

A lot of other hikers today and the trails are very muddy at the moment but that doesn't take away from the great main trail.

Shoes with gripped soles come in handy in a few spots. I wouldn't recommend wearing sandles in the summer.

The trail is 75ish% covered by the forest canopy. This makes for a beautiful sight when the sunbeams shoot through onto the path.

As well, I was lucky enough to have a few chickadees eat seeds out of my hand.

Starkey Hill Trail has a few gems to offer; it is worth exploring.

it's a lovely trail. lots of intersecting trails so it's important to pay attention to where you are going. there's a lot of flat ground but the hike to the falls is steep and quite the workout. it gets slippery in wet weather. The falls are closed off and the trail doesn't loop around so it's a one way walk to the falls and back. it's beautiful and scenic with access to the river at various points. it's one of my favourite places to hike.

Well maintained walk and amazing views of the lake. Can’t wait to go in the summer! Did a 4km route of our own but hoping to tackle the 9.4km (one direction not a loop) route!!!!! Great parking and ablution facilities.

It’s a nice trail but still muddy at the moment. You should consider to visit in the next few months.

it was an easy hike. beautiful views

Omg that was so fun! We went up this steep little hill into this cave like thing where we had to go up steps. It was fun and challenging! The terrain was so perfect too. Wide enough for 2 ppl. It had its muddy areas but then again it’s end of March still!

A great trail system, vert enjoyable.
Bruce Trail certainly an easy trail, Dominion has several steep inclines, water poles and steps. 20 seconds after reading the ‘no mountain biking’ sign, a guy went by on one. Very easy loop system to contend with, relatively quiet, with some out enjoying a hike, and then the odd walker going by in their Levi’s and fashion trainers. The coordinates when you click ‘Directions’ on this app takes you to the entrance on Dominion Street, which requires you to park on the main street and then walk across the bridge and onto Dominion, to the beginning of the trail.

lots of fun

This trail is temporarily closed as of Mach 21, 2018. Check the Bruce Trail's website for most recent info.

Have done this trail many times. It’s my favourite trail closest to Toronto! Hiked it yesterday, road is closed during the winter so add 2km each way to your hike. The sign at the trailhead says the trail is 10km but every time I have done it my devices have shown around 13km. In the snow yesterday it was about 16.5 km and took us 6 hours. Winter hiking is not my thing, but the trail is still fantastic! Highly recommend!

A fair amount of timber cuttings throughout several areas along this trail. Actually opens up trail nicely.

nice open trails and easy to follow

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.

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.

We went mid January, during one of the unseasonably warm weekends. It was muddy but the trail was still fine to do. We did the loop to the summit. Not a hard trail, some interesting elevation and nice views. great quick hike close to Toronto.

Great quiet trail.
went with my dog. didn't run into anyone else. Lots of snow on the ground today so the trail provided was a bit hard to follow for the way back . ended up off trailing a bit and then ended up on the original trail. The "ruins" can be easy to miss but it's on your left on the way in where the trail splits.
Hike Time - 1hr 25min

Very easy walk, with many deer sightings in the early mornings. Plenty of birds, rabbits, and signs of beaver everywhere. Some noise from nearby highways, but for a city trail, the wildlife is impressive.

An exciting loop with lots of opportunity to explore!

Very clean trail, lots of nice gentle inclines and declines. Trail isn't paved but makes for a more naturey experience. Nice atmosphere, few benches to sit on along the paths. Lots of families and dog owners walking along.

Lovely fall walking, benches along the way to stop for a break.

Nice to watch the salmon run.

Nice hike, can be made much longer if you add in some of the Bruce Trail side trails. Beautiful scenery and pretty level ground throughout. Would rate this ‘easy’ for any type of regular hiker. Dogs loved it and there is parking on site! $6.75 entrance fee.

Spend the day head all the way to Crawford Lake
