Hiked with my dog down the eastern leg and back up the western leg to the Pelham parking area. Lots of turns and some ups and downs but a pretty easy trail. Still some muddy patches so wearing boots is still recommended. Most of the trail is through the trees but there are a few open stretches; it was about 60˚F today so not too much stress on the pup. There's a few sections with a fallen tree across the trail, most were easy to hop over but a couple i had help the pup over.

Enjoyed the area! Came during the spring, so it was quite messy, but enjoyable :) I will be writing a blog post about my trail trek on thecaptainandhislady.com

We went for a hike in the short hills via the entrance off of Pelham road and did a 8.8km loop (we explored a little). It was April 8, 2018 and the hike started slightly below zero and finished slightly above zero. The trail was pretty muddy throughout, but manageable as parts were still frozen. Several bridge crossings and multiple waterfalls along this route. Fairly easy terrain. A little busy at the trail head and by Swayze falls, which were very beautiful. Fun for the whole family and the pup!

Amazing in autumn if hiking the bruce trail, but can’t imagine coming through in spring or during a wet summer. Combined it with Rockway Conservation Area for a full day

We hiked the left hand side of the Swayze Falls trail loop and returned by the middle trail as shown on the map. This was on a beautifully sunny November 27th with no wind but 3 degrees C but was a wonderful experience. It took just over two hours. Swayze Falls did have water in it despite it being late in the year and the waterfall (at the south end of the loop .. not marked on the map) was gorgeous with a bridal veil type falls dropping about 80 feet or so. I added a photo of the falls to the photos area.

Nice trail , as most of the short hill trails are. No very spectacular views tho if that’s what you are going for

This is a nice short hike for all skill levels ,our 3 and 5 year olds had no issues completing the loop.only issue was that the back part of the loop is closed for trail regeneration, so you end up doing most of the hike through a hydro field...
