To Do Map

great trail for fall walking

This trail is rated poorly, it is easy by every standard. Hard is where hiking ends and scramble starts. However it nice walk

This trail is a really good trail for starting out. Even though posted as a hard trail it is quite moderate. Good for Beginners!!

Great little walk to do with the family! We did a couple adventures off this path, but generally a good on for those with little kids!

love this little trail :) also features stairs to run.

It is a beautiful hike but unfortunately there are sections of the trail in need maintenance. Other than that I loved the views, plants, flowers and the train of the trail.

My daughter and I really enjoyed this trail, but heads up - the sign for the difficult section actually states that it’s not recommended for use. We went on a warm, dry day so we didn’t experience any treacherous sections, but I would use a lot of caution if using the trail in wet weather.

Good for off leash hiking with your dogs and quite long.

Peaceful path, lovely river views and a great way to see some nature inside the city. Ran into very few other people - but may have to chalk that up taking a mid afternoon hike on a weekday.

Nice simple walk, as long as you make sure you’re taking the right path. The second 5k ends up being mostly neighbourhood walk, but you see a lot of beautiful houses.

The side along Emily Murphy Park is nice. The north side is just a walking path, it’s nice but loud. Groat road bridge is also under going construction right now, still walkable though.

Did this loop with my 2 small kids (1 and 3yrs) and a double stroller. Great easy loop with little sight seeing peakaboo trails. The first km is paved, rest is packed gravel that was easily managed pushing a heavy stroller for part of the way.
Only criticism is the lack of signage at the end of the paved trail; YOU NEEDTO TURN RIGHT on what looks like a gravel alleyway or backroad. Also no washrooms along the way just FYI

Great walk easy and not busy!!

Easy to wail, beautiful river and DT view if you walk to the university side.

Nice walk by the river ,beautiful bridge , natural site ...

An easy hike anyone can do. The view from the bridge is wonderful!

Great weekend trail

Near heavy traffic on the north side of the river and the south side of the river was covered in ice and snow. Trail won't be clear until mid May/early June.

The access to stairs was excellent!

Very woody for the first half and the river isn't always visible coming back. Still, a pleasant walk.

A good mix of terrain: steep in some parts with flat ground in others. A spectacular view at the top of the hill and a nice walk through the forest at the bottom.

Enough people that it doesn't feel isolated, but not too busy.

I'll definitely be coming back!

great run with gorgeous scenery, I extended an extra 2km by not turning at back into the park at the bridge.

I continued straight on the path south and ran to the stairs going up to groat road and then down the hill back into the park.

For an inner city hike in Edmonton, it's pretty decent.
