this trail is simply amazing. I go through all of the springwaters trails almost every day because I live a few km away from it. It's also a great exercise if you try to bike through all of the trails in one go. but it's worth it. it's just a very nice and well maintained place.

Beautiful trail. Tall trees

got up early for a holiday Monday. We took the dog and went for a nice easy walk through the trail. Lots of chipmunks and even seen a gardener snake. not too many people on the trail which was nice . Weather was perfect. Easy hike for anyone looking to just walk around in nature without breaking a sweat.

Great trail for family bike ride. Well maintained, nice scenery. Will be back!

A beautiful hike in a very old forest. My family goes every spring and fall.

mostly love it because it's close to home. I walk the dogs here almost every day

Well maintained trail. Great for families or for moms with strollers. Lots of dogs.

Very nice rolling hill walk.

Can't help but love this trail because on May 6th my boyfriend proposed while we were hiking it. There are benches along the way and the scenery is beautiful. While there is wasn't very busy and felt private. I will remember this trail for the rest of my life.

Probably the most scenic of the Springwater Trails. A nice little boardwalk on the end crosses a little stream where you can watch minnows dart about. The boardwalk has benches to rest on. Bugs can be bad in the spring.

Not as scenic as the rest of Springwater Conservation Area, but much more quiet. Almost none of the trees have been tagged. Easy, comfortable trail.

Lots of deadwood and blowover surrounding this trail.

Trail was not as good as I remembered it. I hadn't been here in at least 10 years. The main trail was very muddy but very wide. I could not get over how busy it was for a weekday on a cold march day! This is the most tagged forest I've ever seen with most of the trees on the main trail carved into by young lovers. I found it fascinating to look at the dates on the trees and see what a tradition that this has become. The main maple bush had a lot more deadfall in it that I'm used to seeing.

Nice trail but the trail led us into a Beach Boys tribute concert on the far side on the lake . We were dressed in full trail combats , certainly not concert attire . Needless to say there were a couple unhappy campers , literally . We'll check the concert listings next time . K
