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.

Very nice trail in such a close proximity to the city. However, it's full of ticks. If you end up going make sure to check each other and especially your dog from time to time. I found 5 ticks on my dog, luckily before they got attached.

Free parking at the camp ground, this was the perfect trail. Great length, easy to walk, plenty to see!
Definitely will visit again!

My dog and I loved this trail. The whole rouge valley actually is just a great place to be outside! Definitely will do again!

Perfect length and difficulty for a decent workout

This is quite enjoyable for an urban trail. Nice to get out of the city for a bit.

Very nice trail. The only problem was the lack of parking. We had to park on the side of the road.

This trail blows all other Toronto trails I've walked out of the water. This is a real forest. Real animals (other than squirrels) live here (including lots of birds). Although you never get away from the hum of the highway, I can see why they almost turned this area is being turned into a national urban park.

The trail gets a fair bit of use. A downside in a more nature setting but perhaps gives you a bit of comfort in an urban park.

One negative: the trail needs signage and maps!

Great forest trail close to Toronto with a surprising amount of wildlife. The forest seemed open and inviting. The sound of the highway nearby was the only thing to remind you you were in the city. We stayed close to the ridge line which gave interesting views through the forest into the valley. The trail had a number of branches and side trails to wander down.

Beautiful trail, not very challenging, but very beautiful and interesting. Great views, some ascents and descents, lots of wildflowers. Great trail for birdwatching--May is prime time to spot warblers (I've seen yellow and chestnut-sided in past years), rose-breasted grosbeaks, and more. Winter, look for gold and ruby crowned kinglets.

I really enjoy this trail and have been hiking it for years. One of my favourites in the Rouge.

Great trail for running. Good straight aways, challenging hill climb and a good length for a short high intensity run.
