Decent hike. Legs of fire stairs and occasional scenic river views were a plus. Mostly was just a walk thru the forest, not anything special.

Perhaps signs informing people of closures and detours could be posted. We did come across one and only one after an hour of stumbling about in the woods being eaten alive by mosquitos. The trails that worked were beautiful but half of my hike was so frustrating that I will never return.

decent. you're not along the water as much as you think.

Great hike and lots of mosquitoes loved it!

49 floors of elevation - well maintained - none to a little traffic - beautiful scenery - dog had great time - 10.7k all in - highly recommend!

Good long trail with nice views of the river.

This is actually a 9 km trail. It's 5 1/2 km to get to the backside of the campground. A great trail though, I would recommend the Wye Creek ravine add on, which is steep challenging and stunning

This was a really nice trail. It was my first time on this trail, I had my dog with me and it was very nice. The weather was 6C and mainly sunny. There was one very large ice patch close to the start of the trail, just before the "legs of fire stairs" after that the trail was mostly dry the odd muddy patch here and there. Very little traffic I saw 4 people, however it was a Friday afternoon (12-1pm). All in all great trail I will have to come back and do it again.

Super icy in spots

One of my favourite "nearby" hikes to do.


Pros:
- Lots of elevation climbs and different difficulty levels ranging from flat terrain to straight up stairs.
- A moderately distanced hike that can be completed pretty quickly (within a couple hours)
- Fun hike with lots of beautiful scenery including the river, lots of trees, and in ravine trails.


Cons:
- Can be pretty busy, but usually tapers off the further in to the hike you get. A mountain biking club likes to practice there on Saturdays.
- Lots of different trails that can take you in to different parts of the ravine if you aren't careful. It's fun to get lost, but you want to be wary of your direction.
- Awful mosquitoes this year, had to reapply DEET about 4 times.
