Very pleasant, easy stroll. Enjoyed watching the very busy beavers in the pond near the beginning of the trail. There were also beautiful wetland flowers. I didn’t see any other animals (which is to be expected, as it was afternoon), but there were tracks/scat/fur from bison, elk, deer, and coyote, so if you went in the morning or evening you’d likely have a good chance.

A lovely, short trail. I went two days in a row at sunset and was able to enjoy numerous beaver, muskrat, and waterfowl. This would be a great trail to bring the kids along.

Great easy trail. We went the last weekend in April so it was a little bit wet but still amazing! We will absolutely be back.

I’ve only done this trail on snow shoes. It’s a fun quick trail that has enough small ups and downs to not be too much of a stroll. Did it with the dog on a 15 foot lead. Has some nice viewing spots.

I love this trail four seasons ... it’s challenging enough to give one a sense of accomplishment. Many nice spots for contemplation.

this is a great beginner trail! my family and I went out last weekend and had a great time. this trail took us about an hour and our 3 yr old had no problem walking it herself. there are a few small incline and declines but generally well kept. I would recommend this trail to young families and the elderly alike.

Paved path for about 1km. Then a dirt road. Great for a quick family bike ride or family hike. Easy, dry with limited views of the lake.

Nice easy trail. Not much of a lake view once you go off the paved trail. Some ponds, but mostly in the bush. Muddy in some spots. Didn't see any wildlife, but did hear the snorting in the bush and saw the bison tracks on the trail.

Good easy trail. Interesting route with plenty to see. However, we were unlucky and did not see any beavers! A park ranger was there breaking one of the dams that was flooding the tree line so that may have had something to do with the no show! We saw lots of elk tracks on the trail, but no elk! There were loads of mini frogs which were amazing and swarms of flys/mosquitos which were most definitely not. We both had bug spray on but on the loop part of the trail the flys were relentless :( bug spray is a must. This would not stop me doing the trail again however because it really was good overall.

nice easy trail for a good outing.

excellent trail. me and my wife just started doing trails.

Good walk for the kids and the grandparents. Super buggy but super pretty.

Sympa mais la majeure partie de la marche est dans la forêt, sans véritable point de vue sur les étangs

Very easy hiking. No real challenge. Nice to get a great walk in.

Quick hike with nice scenery. So many mosquitos, so go prepared.

Fun trail quick and enjoyable.

Nice trail, flowers, lots of evidence of bison but didn't see any.

It was a fun hike with my two kids. Had to piggy back them the last half (they're 4 & 6). It took about 80 minutes.
Lots of mosquitos!!!

This trail is good if you're looking for a short, easy walk. The area is heavily wooded and there aren't many lookout points. For those who are not familiar with reading trail maps, you have to start at the trail #3 marker which connects with #2 (Simmons).

Easy hike through bush, great views of beaver dams. Use mosquito repellent in the summer months.

Fast, easy hike. Nice views, especially the beaver viewing area.
Good if you're with a beginner or a child, or just want to get out for a quick hike.
