Easy trail with nice forest path to the falls. Took about 30-40 minutes to reach the falls with frequent stops and leisurely walk. When you reach the falls, there is a wooden stairs to go down and take nice photos. Its a family friendly hike!

The section of trail that runs alongside the quarry (Hilton Falls Side Trail) is currently closed so you cannot complete this loop at the moment.

Nice to spend an afternoon there!

Beautiful area!! We hiked to the falls and back.
Had lunch at the falls, where fires are kept going.
I would say this is an easy hike & really enjoyable.

A lot of forest to see and a long hike

Loved the fire pit. Easy trail , lots of fun

Easy loop.

Amazing woodlot, lots to see and so many hiking and biking trails. If you want to see some unique landscape with a easy to moderate trail (moderate due to the length of trails and connection to other trails) Ive heard porcupines and coyotes here, seen tree frogs, spring peepers, deer and foxes. biting bugs can be VERY BAD in the spring. Bug spray wont do anything to stop the clouds of mosquitos. So if you dont like getting bit, wait until bug season is pretty well over or go on a day thats cool and rainy.

Pretty easy trail, good for hiking and connects to many other tracks in the woods. Hunting is permitted during hunting season.
Some good birdwatching, not the best. Some nice species such as pileated wood peckers, wood thrush and a variety of warblers. The occasional least and american bitterns as well as pie billed grebes in the marshes.

Great easy trail with wide pathways if you have a larger group. The overall hike was short but if you prefer waterfalls then it's a great place to go.

Highly recommended trail we had a wonderful experience

Awesome hike

A pleasant walķ to begin with, but carrying on after the falls is very much worth it. We saw lots of Trillium and some other wildflowers. A nicer walk than most.

Beautiful views and great place to explore.

Awesome trail with waterfall. When we hiked along the trail, we opted to do a bit of bouldering through the rocks by the waterfalls. Noticed there were free firewood along the trail and a little place to set-up bonfires if you feel like it. It's well kept and surrounded by shrubbery.

Great trail! Small hill at the beginning and the rest is pretty flat. Options to extend the hike by taking other trails. Beautiful area!! Highly recommend.

Beautiful trail, would rate this easy not moderate! Falls was flowing!! It was pretty awesome! Fire pit at the top if you want to sit and have lunch! Wood was provided! Very nice place!!

Hiked 15km around the forest, thankfully the AllTrails app kept me on the right path, as once you’re off the Bruce Trail it’s not too hard to take a wrong turn! Many side trails (some hiking or biking only) also some No Trespassing signs to look out for. Very light traffic too.

nice open trails and easy to follow

Beautiful area, with TONS of side trails that you can connect to make this as long (or as short) as you’d like. A fair bit of snow when we went but there were still plenty of bikers out on the trail, as well as a few hikers and dogs. Easy terrain throughout and well marked trails. Would absolutely come back again!

Nice hike, can be made much longer if you add in some of the Bruce Trail side trails. Beautiful scenery and pretty level ground throughout. Would rate this ‘easy’ for any type of regular hiker. Dogs loved it and there is parking on site! $6.75 entrance fee.

Falls are worth the trip. Bruce trail sections are fun.

We hiked Hilton Falls trail last week, just after the park opened mid week, not allot of people there so it was nice and peaceful, we went up Hilton Falls trail and came down Red Oak trail, it was a great trail to hike, bit of a steep grade at first but soon leveled out. Unfortunately the falls were bone dry at this time, so it was a little disappointing end to a great hike. We will try again in the spring when we know there will be water flowing
