A pleasant trail with interpretive signs along it. A few mucky spots. Blackflies out and fiercest atop the lookout and basically whenever you stop moving. The trail is a mostly a subtle steady climb with a few non so subtle points. The bonus is that it's all downhill on the return trip. There is a laddered waterfall near the trailhead that is an attraction in itself. Well-maintained trail and area.

Great trail. Varied terrain and lots of snow. It was fun to go off trail and through the woods. They weren't very dense. You can't get lost because it is a loop. You always hit the trail. Fantastic photo opportunities. Very little traffic.

It was great! Easy to navigate and although you go up, wasn’t too steep or tiring. One flag for going in winter, the section at the very top is not packed snow so snowshoes would help - I was almost up to my waist in snow! But the views at the top were worth it.

Very peaceful forest walk with a good variety of landscapes (hardwood, pines, boardwalks, hills, open field views). A great short winter walk!

Took the dogs for a hike, first time out for the pup at only 14 weeks. It was a great, well used, well marked easy enough trail, and really pretty in the snow. Will love to see it in the summer.

A nice loop off the main munro loop trail. Lots of pine planation trees but the varied and rocky ground, plus the board walks over the pond make it interesting. We saw a couple of dog walkers on the trail but otherwise we had it all to ourselves. I agree that the trail gets quite icy (same issue with the munro loop) but that didn't cause us too much problems. Combined with the munro loop you can wander for a good 50 minutes at "small child" speed. Just a note - the "map" here includes both the munro loop and the valley ridge portion.

This is a great short winter trail. The trail hugs an old wooden fence, which provides lots of great opportunities for photos if the lighting is right. We heard lots of woodpeckers. What makes the trail most interesting is how rocky and hilly it is - much more varied than a lot of other forests near Ottawa (which tend to be quite flat). The Munro loop is actually 1.2 km in length (for some reason the website says 0.8 km and doesn't mention that there are multiple trails on the site). I like the munro loop more than the valley ridge loop mostly because of the hardwood in the munro portion but both are enjoyable. A hidden gem 50 minutes west of Ottawa!

Excellent trail. Easy to navigate. Wonderful view of surrounding landscapes. Fantastic vista!

Great hike, well marked, informative signage, beautiful views and on the easier side of moderate. I did this hike in the fall, and the colours were breathtaking. Highly recommend.

Excellent fall hike

Nice trail, great for biking. This trail can be biked/hiked past Kunopaski Road all they way to Calabogie (hwy 511).

I used this trail to do an 18 k trail run. I absolutely loved it!!

Since I’m just starting to get back out there enjoying nature this was a great first trail as it is easy and took us about an hour to complete. The trail is well marked and has some informative plaques about the surroundings.

Very easy for the most part, just the last 100m are a bit steeper but still no difficult terrain. The trail is beautiful and well marked. The surface is mostly packed soil and often overgrown. Beware of poison ivy on the sides of the trail. Information panels inform the history and flora along the trail. They cover an old wolf den, beaver ponds, water falls, turtles, and various plants and trees along the way. We encountered a lot of wildlife for such a short walk, frogs, various birds, a fox/coyote (still debated), and chipmunks. Also a few too many caterpillars and mosquitos for my taste. The lookout provides a surprisingly good view of the surrounding hills, far better than the small elevation gain would suggest. Overall a nice short walk, but beware of abundant mosquitos in the summer and poison ivy along the trail.

Great panoramic view with a beautiful cascading mountain stream to see on your way up to the top. Well-placed signage pointing out local rocks, vegetation and animal habitats.

Great little trail. Easy to find and ample parking. Trail is packed down and well used. I would caution anyone right now that the trail is pretty icy in places. Beautiful Red Pines, cute little boardwalk and lots of firs. Easy - any age could enjoy.

nice easy trail for the family. It does have some small hills throughout so if your only able to do flat trails, this one is not for you. I used snow shoes which had no problem on the hills, did not slip once and I was carrying my daughter on my back. It was easy to find as there us a large sign along the road. The parking lot was clear for my vehicle to enter. There was no one else in the trail so we had it to ourselves, although you can tell people were there using the trail due to the snow being flattened. The trails are easy to follow with colour coded markers along the way. I also had cell signal in case it was needed.

Nice hike out today in the fresh snow. Easy trail for the most part, very well marked. It was our first time and we worried heading out that with the snow, way finding might be a challenge, but it is a very wide track most of the way up with signage all the way. Lots of interpretive signage as well if that's your cup of tea. It looks like the main trail continues after the cutoff for the summit, we followed it for a bit, but there wasn't any way finding in that section and with the snow it was hard to tell if were still on track. That section might be clearer in the summer. The water fall on the right side going up is worth a side trip and a few minutes. The summit is quite nice with the highest views in the county to be had. Dog friendly. Nice outing, recommended.

Beautiful trail. Easy hiking until you reach the base of Blueberry Mountain. While steep, it’s quite short to reach the summit. It’s definitely worth getting to the top.

Absolutely beautiful. To get up the last bit of the mountain was quite difficult as there was no clear trail laid out. Otherwise, worth every bit of it

It's an easy but nice trail that is basically split in two. One section is wonderful old growth forest with Barred owls that hugs along meadows that are the hunting grounds for Red-shouldered hawks. The second half is a tree farm that is somewhat grown up but provides for wonderful pictures in the winter after a fresh snow. Very little traffic means you get the whole place to yourself on most days.
