This is a fabulous trail. The trail had been groomed for cross country skiing but we were able to snowshoe along side. You go through trees and open meadows. A small view of the mountains coming down the hill through the trees. Not sure you would be able to see the mountains in the summer. We stopped a lot taking photos and listening to the silence.

On a muddy day after a morning rain and a wet couple of days before, we hiked this trail starting at the Information Centre and went clockwise. It's a relatively easy trail with only one short steep uphill section and the rest just rolls along. I would rate this as easy instead of the intermediate ranking it currently has. My only complaint of the trail is that there isn't much of a viewpoint on any part of it. Muddy conditions prevented us from exploring any of the other trials in this network but we will be back during drier conditions. There was only one other hiking group on the trail so we pretty much had it all to ourselves!

Really enjoyed the trail, on a beautiful winter/spring day ☀. Probably could have used snowshoes, although not really required. Good amount of snow still covering all of the trail; but, we were able to avoid breaking through in the deep spots. Would probably be a very nice trail in the summer too.
