Shorter trail if you come up off renshaw rd. Take the trail to the right for about 25 mins to spyglass.

Walking

Hillside trail is nice. Don’t walk to the end by the golf course if you’re looking for spy glass hill though. The turn into the woods for the trail to spy glass hill is not well marked. The trail is about 1km in on the right, it’s clearly a trail just no markings as to where it goes. Also, it can be muddy. If you want to see spy glass hill you’re better off parking on one of the side streets off of Rothesay Rd and taking the 10 min walk up the hill rather than accessing it from hillside trail.

Great trail but the turn off to Spy Glass Hill is not well marked . We took trail off on the right at the 1 km mark . Trail is wide not too steep easy to follow .

We took the whole family for this hike. We had a 2 and 5 year old with us and they walked it and enjoyed the walk It was a fun trail but the start of the trail at the very groomed gravel trail is not marked. If I didn't have Google I would have missed it.

Great trail and well taken care of. Forgot to record our walk out tho! Sat at the top of spyglass hill and had some dinner. Beautiful view of the Kennebecasis Valley along with the river and islands. Will definitely hike this again!

First to Review

I actually did twice this amount since I turned off recording at the furthest point - I thought I was using too much data. I didn’t realize what I was doing but next hike I’ll leave it on! We enjoyed this hike very much but definitely didn’t take a shower long as the projected time! It was rocky in places but that was great as were training to do part of the AT in Georgia!
