One of my faves. Hike it frequently. There's a surprisingly tough accent toward the middle/end of the kingfisher, but it's totally doable and there's a nice look out at the top to take a breather.

I hike this trail a lot. It's a great little trek. Lots of birds and evidence of other wildlife. Well-maintained and scenic trail.

The scanlon creek trails are the nicest ones I know that are very close to Newmarket. The kingfisher loop has a few steep sections. The lake is now a creek, and while it can be a bit buggy at time, it does feel like true nature even though the suburbs are a short drive away. There were lots of birds calling when we went for a walk and the terrain was very interesting for the young children in our gang. A bit steep in a couple of sections. The discovery play garden is very fun for kids (especially the big boulder)

This is one of 4 trails at Scanlon Creek conservation area and quite beautiful.

easy but enjoyable hike!!

it's a good trail for grandma. She would have trouble with one little hill but the trail otherwise is very flat. Did see and hear chickadees...

Familiar/ lots of variety
