Nice easy hike. Lots of fossils to be found along the cliffs. One of my pup's favorite hikes.

Great flat trail with excellent views of Lake Ontario. Wear boots, non gravel trails were muddy or puddling.

I've been here on and off for a few years. Snakefoot Trail along the water has some very nice views of Lake Ontario and nearby islands. The cliffs drop into the water and is very scenic, especially on a sunny day. The trail is very good for families as it is well kept with very little incline. There's also a protrusion from the cliff which offers a great place for a picnic with awesome views of the lake.

I've never actually followed the trail back into the woods, so I can't comment on that side of the trail, but snakefoot along the lake is well worth it. Also, there is no entry fee whatsoever.

The trek along the cliffs was nice but surprisingly buggy on October 1. Once we turned inland on the Snakefoot trail the scenery became underwhelming. It was easy to traverse and fine for children and older hikers. Hiking boots were still a good idea in a few wet spots.

Nice easy trail for the kids. Taught them about the invasive species there that seems to be choking out everything. Didn't really see or hear birds the entire walk though..

Flat, comfortable walk. The breeze off the lake was lovely, and the rocky views were gorgeous. Definitely a trail I'll bring my dogs back to walk on many times.

Easy stroll along the Ontario coast line. Perfect for young kids, dogs, or even older folks who don't get around so well.

We love this state park. They have multiple trails, so you can do longer or shorter trips. The view from the picnic area is amazing!! Seeing the pillboxes along the trail was also a treat to see.

Perfect evening hike. This is my go to spot for sunsets. The area is nicely taken care of and really easy to walk for all ages. I recommend taking Snakefoot trail from the parking area out to the first picnic spot.

Hiked the Snakefoot trail (approx. 4.5 miles) and it was stunning. Beautiful hike along the lake and then through a meadow. Trails are taken care of and are marked well. Dog & family friendly. High recommend it!

Pretty good hike. I liked the Visitor Center a lot. Great little history of Mr. Wehle. The trail is well maintained, very easy hike. Don't understand why it's labeled as Moderate. Got to hike along the cliff rocks overlooking Lake Ontario, which was awesome. Also great area for the avid bird watchers. Only gripe I had were the dog owners not picking up the manure at the beginning of the trail.

Park is very well kept and awesome view of Lake Ontario. Trails are not difficult and would be great for kids.
