Enjoy one of the nicest walks in the river valley Parking on 82nd Street, you can access a number of trails, but the River Valley Riverside walk is one of the jewels of the River Valley. Walking around the borders of Riverside Golf Course, there is a steady drop down into the River Valley on paved trails. Once you reach the gravel trail you enter a fantastic walk surrounded by trees and the river. You are treated to great views all along this walk, and as you move around the bend, the downtown area comes into view. Further along, you get an opportunity to get some great pictures of the Dawson Bridge. To get back to your vehicle, you have to walk up Rowland Road and back into the neighbourhood. There are some significant elevation changes during this walk, but it is a fantastic riverside stroll and is highly recommended.

It’s a nice and easy trail but with quite a few inclines! The trail did have some scenic areas but overall was a little boring, at least in the spring. The majority of it was walking through trees but they were still brown and not blooming so not the most scenic.

lots of extra trails to take if you're feeling adventurous, but easy to find your way around so you won't get lost. incline in some areas. quite a few bikers on these trails.

Good trail for the whole family(dog too). No matter which way you go there is going to be a climb uphill.

Nice easy loop. Be ready for a bit of an uphill climb at the end though.
