Definetly not 25km, the trail map shows the Shaggy Mane trail. From a technical standpoint this is an easy trail, with some good inclines as you climb up from deer run to the cross country horse jumping area, and again after you drop down on the west side and have crossed over the north parking lot, but nothing major. Trail is a mix of packed gravel and loose gravel, which is excellent for distance training. I've parked at the north lot, run down little river loop to ravine trail, and hopped on to shaggy mane to do the loop and back up ravine at the end to the lot for a 16km or so run. Lots of options in the park for short to half marathon distance runs

Not 25km, 10-12km round trip if you take the longer route. Horses and other wildlife can be seen on a good day. Avoid horse trails unless you don't mind the smell of manure lol

Walked the perimeter route (Shaggy Mane Trail) on a drizzly rainy day and enjoyed the walk and even ran into 3 deer as I came around a turn. A couple things to consider before you go;

Shaggy Mane = horse trail = walking in horse poop quite a bit.
This is not a Moderate hike - it's super super easy.
This is not a 25Km hike - it's more like 10.5Km
If you take the longest possible way like I did - it's only a combined elevation of 104M - again easy.

If you are looking to clear your head and enjoy a mellow walk outdoors, this is it! If you are looking at challenging yourself as you prepare for longer more strenuous hikes, this ain't it.

Disclaimer - I did not take any of the internal off shoot hikes. There may be more elevation gain and challenge on those.

Cheers,

Great trail for a walk. Good for any age group.

went on the shaggy mane trail and as someone just getting in to walking on trails it was really nice and super fun to do with a dog. There's a nice tap near a building to refresh at ! would definitely do it again!
