Like a skating rink, the trails were all ice. Quite flat.

Decent off-leash trail and the off-leash dog park is a nice bonus. However, there is a gun club nearby and we heard constant gunfire throughout our walk. Luckily we seemed more bothered by it than our dog. Also, almost all the trees are planted and still relatively small. There are definitely better trails for off-leash dog walking nearby.

We enjoyed the trails and met a lot of friendly dogs walking their humans Lol. Will definitely be making this trail a part of our regular routine.

A bit easy to get turned around but it’s worth it for the beautiful fall walk!

No one was there on a weekday. Easy, lovely trail.

A pleasant afternoon and a nice place to walk. Mostly easy with a few small hills on the east side near the 9th line. There are still some icy spots, most can be walked around. We enjoyed it and will likely go back.

We had wanted to go to Raven trail however it was closed due to issues with beetles. This park was just down the street and we were traveling with our big pup. Much to his delight, the start of the trail is also a giant off leash dog park! The trail conditions were amazing and loved the side trails that took through the woods

One of my favourite trails for a run. Lots of tree cover therefore no need for running sunglasses. Very flat except for a hill at the far end of the loop as you turn around to head back. Plenty of parking.

Beautiful hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing trail that offers an array of forested environments with their own unique plants and animals. Although, the trail is peppered with numerous winding trails (optimal for mountain biking), which can be disorienting and may get you lost if you don't have a map handy. Despite this, these trails offer excellent obstacles for mountain bikers, with varying difficulty levels, and are not limited to bikers, as you may choose to walk them if you're interested in a change in terrain. Overall, the bikers and hikers on the trail were very friendly, providing users with a friendly experience.

A wonderful tract for the family to enjoy. Also features an accessibility loop to encompass all trail users.

Had a blast on the trail with my family. My grandma with her walker loved it. The lake was gorgeous and close to the parking lot too. Lots to see

Fantastic tract. Easily maneuverable with a stroller. Fun for the kids and family

Brownhill Tract offers excellent opportunities for biking as well as hiking. Featuring tracks ranging from simple to technical there is a wide range of difficulty for all types of trail users. The Jack Track which flows from trail to trail is 16km long. The trail is however prone to both bugs and poison ivy so dress appropriately.

I totally went off on a bout a bazollion side trails and got a little lost, but it was fun! It was late winter and totally gorgeous. One area, I swear I felt like I'd stepped into Narnia or something.

The AllTrails isn't accurate. Very easy to get lost here. But it's beautiful and serene. Many trails to choose from.

Not too bad for snow shoeing. Terrain is woody, loopy, and pretty flat. Variety of trails to choose.
