So many different trails and an aweskme workout.

Great scenery... good work out.

Nice easy trail. Not muddy at all. Very flat great to wheelchairs or strollers.

Me and my friend completed the entire trail and took all the hard paths all the way through and was the best hiking experience I’ve had in years and will be going back soon. Took us 8 hours and did over 12 k . Took our time to enjoy every moment

Beautiful trail, sometimes rocky after the lookout point. Was challenging at places for my small dog. Can get crowded around the lake. Otherwise love it!

What a great hike! We started the hike late after 1600. Did the yellow trail then the red that took us to the green. Nothing much their to look at. After getting lost in the process and met another couple that were resting on the bench since they too got lost. Did the boardwalk and sat at the table by the water and ate our early dinner. We had three visitors two chipmunks and a raccoon took great photos of the raccoon but just watched the chipmunks eat. They are so cute. After 1600 the visitors centre is closed no access to running water for washing hands or normal toilets. Except the outside standing up ones. Not sure how else to call them. So don’t forget hand sanitizer! Walking back to the car two hours later. Parking lot was still busy.

beautiful trail too many school trips today didn't get to go around the lake

Great hike any time of year. Well, once again need icers to do a stress free hike. Seeing a family fall trying to wLk around the board walk. You can definitely see you have to be cautious. We barely made the last presentation of the sweet water and cornbread. Very nice and informative. They even handed out a sample of it. That’s my time to leave since I’m gluten free. But great to watch. They were also selling toffee after showing how to make it. I never carry cash. So i missed out on trying it. Make sure to take CASH. Went in to the visitors centre and had our lunch we packed. If you need a washroom or need to wash your hands make sure it’s before 1600. They close the building. Very busy today. Great weather too.

Always a great trail. Very busy today. We definitely still need icers for this orange trail. A lot of people turned around just to be safe. Be careful driving out. ! There is a massive pot hole that could damage the axle but careful not to hit the metal pole in the process thats on your left. Beautiful place anytime if Year.

Still quite a bit icy. Hiked it with my 6 and 3 year old and they did fine. I had backpack the 3 year old a bit and had spikes on though.

What a great experience! We loved the boardwalk loop and all other trails it leads off too!

I give this trail 1 star simply for the fact that it is $7/person to enter! Considering all the free options, I would never recommend this to anyone. 4 of us drove here without any forewarning and were shocked that we would have to pay $28. Would have really appreciated a note about this from someone on Alltrails so here it is now. Consider Waterdown trail 20 mins away..FYI it is free.

Great moderate hike. Well marked out trails

Easy loop around the lake on the boardwalk, very quaint

took my mom for a bit of exercise. she loved the carvings. we did the boardwalk around the lake. super easy. very good route for those that have their mobility challenged.

We did it yesterday. Walked the boardwalk around the lake. Had lunch at the visitor centre rested and my friend and I were ready to hike back the orange trail to rattlesnake point. Great hike, beautiful area. Can’t get tired of doing this hike several times throughout the year

A nice easy hike / walk through the forest, with some great views over the escarpment.

excellent trail for good hiking - 21 km loop

Beautiful trail. Starts off rocky and can be quite slippery due to the moss/roots. Trail weaves through various blends of forest types which keeps things interesting. Look out at the crest of the escarpment is well worth the incline to get there. Most of the trail is easy but parts are more moderate.

very nice, well maintained trail. had a great time with family.

A must place to visit !
