There are two big hill to go up. The one with the wide steps is awkward to climb. Difficult if you are 86 years old.

Eh, wheres the real hiking trail? My gps took me to toronto zoo so i had to go back to the bridge at old finch and park.

Parking was difficult to find if you just drove to the coordinate provided. The trail itself was quite pleasant, flat with some views of small lakes and streams. Probably even prettier with the fall colours a few weeks later!

Lovely trail. I like how it varies from old forest to fields with flowers, flats to hills. I wasn’t expecting to hike up the old ski hill but loved doing it! I hiked back along the river and a good part of that trail is sort of falling in to the river. Signs said that part was closed for regeneration.

Agree with the last review, pretty easy to get lost if I didn't have this app because there are tons of forks that don't make it clear which the correct way is, so lucky I had it.

Trail itself was nice and was a relatively easy hike.

Great run. Nice scenery and good hills for running

Very poorly marked, many time there was a fork in the trail with no markers to help. Without this app I would have gotten off track. One good hill up and down on the trail.

I've done this trail 3x and every time I've ended up somewhere completely different. Lots of forks and turns so it's easy to not follow the loop.
It's an excellent hike but if it wasn't for this app, we would have been totally lost. I need to work on my navigational skills!
I hiked this with a 3-year-old in a back carrier and it was fine (and I'm not that athletic or strong by any stretch).
Great trail for "real" hiking!

Really liked this for a shorter hike.

Went for an afternoon hike. It was with lots of up hills, downhills. Some part of the trail goes by the river. There was lots of wild life and different type of wild flowers. It was overall a good hike. Definitely recommend and will do it again.

Free parking. If you take the loop starting from the west side, can avoid hill climb lol. Initially near highway and can hear it, but eventually end up in nice forests with no sounds. Lovely 5km.

As a trail was decent to run. It was not marked as well as could have been desired as such ended up adding distance to our overall run (not a bad thing, but unexpected). There needs to be more identifiable markings for the loop.

Went april 22, 2018 and trails were flooded and muddy. The banks along the Rouge River have collapsed due to high water levels. Also there are notices of ticks. If you have a dog i suggest not bringing them due to the ticks and mud

Nice place to visit its great to take pics.

Visit today 1st time for a trail running and have a fun time. Beautiful scenery with some good technical uphill, downhill, muddy, stony road and single lane. Some obstacles and in forest on the hill you can run around off-trail and run on branch and tree. Still very muddy and wet on the ground with some fallen trees, but that's what's trail running for. Definitely come back to explore and run again.

BTW, some of the trail marking is not clear, just be caution.

Did about 5km with the family (husband, wife, two girls and our pup). We stayed on the main trail and then kept going and found this great little place under a railroad bridge that also provided great views of the Rouge Creek. It was perfect for setting up a little camp for lunch. Very few people, but may be due to time of year. There are well maintained parts and also side trails that make you forget you are pretty much surrounded by the urban sprall. Recommend for a 2-3 hour getaway.

For what and where it is, beautiful spot year round. On rare occasion you might even spot some interesting wildlife! Trail is super easy, definitely not “moderate”

Great trail but doesn’t make sense that there is no parking at the north end, especially with all that land, not thought out well whatsoever to be inviting. That being said a great hike whether you want to do the whole thing or just half with young kids.

beautiful scenery in the winter time. easy trail with variety and multiple paths. campground parking was the best option for us, great hills and sledding spots.

Nice trail, easy to navigate and level easy terrain. A couple of small hills throughout but completely manageable. This trail can be connected to many other trails south of Twyn Rivers Drive (all part of the same park) south of Twyn Rivers is much prettier scenery and takes you through more forested areas. Trail got fairly busy by about 9:30am on a Sunday. Also there is NO parking to enter the Cedar Trail at the north end, off of Morningside, the only place to park is on the south end off of Twyn Rivers Drive (there is a parking lot) Also NOTE: there were lots of black legged ticks in early December. We had to pick them off ourselves and the dogs.
