Oct 19 Fun afternoon hike, stick to the black diamond trails the main path leads out to the road and some is blocked off by construction. Beautiful foliage still this time of year, came across the 1940s cars and the Paskapoo Big Rock, mildly mucky at parts but would come back. 3.2 km took us an hour including taking pics.

Nice city trail run, good footing not to wet

Fun little trail through the woods. Neat things to look at like an old building foundation and old cars. Some nice incline to get your heart rate up.

It took me an hour including stopping for photos and to enjoy the view. A nice hike close to town, it starts with a descent and then flattens out for a while as you wander through trees, passing a couple of old cars and a cute little waterfall. The hike back up is steep which makes you feel as though you’ve gotten a nice workout. Shared the trail with bikers, dogs and only a few other hikers. Very nice.

I love this one for an inner city walk! It has a few cool surprises such as an old graffitied basement foundation, old 1940s/50s cars, and a Buddhist prayer site! A nice walk to take the kids on for an afternoon.

Great easy trail run, I had my dog I let him run but kept his leash on.

Perfect little urban adventure. Only saw one other person on the trails on my midweek visit. Flowers and berries still adding colour and just a beautiful time of year to check this place out. A bit of seclusion in the busy city. Great to just go explore all the different trails.

Great trail in the city. A nature walk, take the dogs. Lots of cool things to see from Wildflowers, berries, insects, creeks and creek crossings, abandoned old cars circa the 40’s? Took an hour and a half. 5km. Would come back and do it again.

fun, other than avoiding bikes this is easy more than moderate, some areas to the east are closed down now for construction, so we extended to the end of the trail west instead! the south part that looks like a big U in the original trail is blocked as well... but still was really fun and slippery after a big storm... mosquitos were hell!!!

A "forest in the city" type of adventure. Some construction happening, some trails walk right by it. Traffic noise as well, but birds and wind in the trees are also audible. Clearly used by bikes. Would wander there again. Bring bug spray

This was a great trail for us to get out for a quick hike. We only made it part way before it rained on us (In June) but it was still a beautiful trail and worth it!

Nice walk in the city, nothing special. Good views of the city. Plenty of ruining water for dogs to drink. Some parts of trail were closed to new building construction.

Some trails don't show on the map. Nice young forest compact inner city trail. You could hear the highway noise though. Watch out for bikes.

The second half of the trail is now developed. It just ends!
