A nice quick loop. Take the shorter/detour until freeze up. The back part of the bog has ankle deep water. You will need waterproof shoes and trekking poles to go off the trail and around the water.

My favorite hike in Birds Hill. It is a big, so unless it's been very dry for sometime, expect to get wet feet. It is beautiful in the winter.

really enjoyed this trail, the leaves in autumn are beautiful! dont go after a rainfall though, very flooded. enjoyable trail, feels more like hike, a little more rugged than the other trails.

more like a walk than a hike, but a nice scenic walk

Signage a bit difficult to find.....ended up going backwards

Trail was dry and in great condition. As it's really meant as a mountain bike trail, all hikers should be aware of any bikes coming up from behind. All riders were very courteous. There is only 2 signs, in the first KM and the last KM. Just stay to your right and you'll be fine. Will do this trail again.

Easy trail, great for getting a little sweat on! There is a shirt cut to make the trail half the size at the look out tower. Take the sign for blue stem trail once there, they’ll lead you back to the chickadee parking lot. (If you’re with kids or something)

Great trail for a short evening walk.

Trail in great condition. Relaxing loop to walk or bike.

Trail in great condition. Early morning hike was peaceful. Terrain is not very challenging.

Lime Kiln 7.8km well shaded without too much diversity. A quiet route (regularly used for horses). Will prob skip hiking this one again for lack of interesting scenery. Trail running/biking could be more fun! Enjoy!

A very pretty trail! Took me about 45min with a couple stops with my dog. Well shaded and beautiful trees. Nothing challenging here, and there is a look out tower (did not see much). Enjoy!

Hazelnut 9km. Yes, you must walk north on the gravel pathway to the other side of the field to start this hike (and Tamarack). Wide paths, well marked, well shaded. Unfortunately I followed signs to the look out (will not do that next time) and ended up turning back early. Enjoyed how quiet it was at this end of Birds Hill Park.

Very simple trail. It felt like a 20min walk. Wide area to walk, would be a fun short one with a bike. I was hoping I could get to the water with my dog but doesn’t seem like a good dog swim area (in my opinion). Easy peasy.

Mix of shade and sun, lots of poison ivy tight into trail but a fun one. I enjoyed this one because of the amount of diversity of landscapes/trees. It says 1h30 but I did it in about 40min with my dog. I would hike/trail run this one again.

Lots of poison ivy on the trail and very overgrown grass onto the trail.

Trail was damp due to yesterday’s rain but in great condition. A misty morning but perfect for a ride, and we saw 2 deer.

Pretty basic trail through the trees with a lookout for kids to climb on route. Good if you just want to get out in the woods and put some km on :)

Not a very good trail for hikers. The signs say mountain bikers only. I tried walking on some of the trials and it was a hassle to constantly move out of the way for cyclists. The trails are also not mapped out great.

Vey easy trail, would be good for kids as it has signs with information about the animals / plants within the trail. The trail is also paved.

This trail, the one mapped out, is actually called Oak Ridge. It is for Mountain Biking it’s states on the sign no dogs, no people. It is a very busy bike trail and people walking the trail would be hazardous. The trail head for Bur Oak is also at the location it’s a small loop inside Oak Ridge, it is paved, 1km.

This is a great trail, it is short so it doesn’t require to much time commitment. It is beautiful but can be wet and muddy.
