Quite icy in parts - I wouldn’t go out without cleats - even if you come back along the river there are a few wide icy flows that are difficult without cleats

Trail was good for the most part. A few icy spots, kids and dog managed fine.

Thick ice from natural springs in the bankside coming down. Thank goodness for rope and wooden handrails. Loved the challenge of that and hanging on to small trees to descend

Went west to east today dec 21. Started at Edworthy bottom parking lot. Go west for 100m to trail head. Bathroom nearby. Well maintained trail but some sections have been destroyed. Ice flow over a few sections so micro spikes would be helpful. Great spot to have some quiet. Good trail for running as well or a dog walk. Took around 1 hour one way, ends near pie junkies on spruce drive if you want to loop that way or just return back the way you came. (Would double time) to around 2 hours. Couple nice views all in all, feels like a short hike without leaving the city. Would recommend for all.

some icy section in the steep areas where springs pass over the trail. Some can be hidden by needles and snow

Decent little hike within the city. Beautiful fall colours & view from the lookout. Some areas require more attention as the path is on a hillside. But overall we enjoyed the quick hike

Fall colors are gorgeous. Heavily trafficked on a Sunday. Quite a few spots in need of repair though, steps are too tall for shorter inclined people, a couple washed out spots. The fall foliage was beautiful, but the hike overall wasn’t great.
