Parts of this trail route don’t exist anymore. Bring bug spray. Great area.

Nice peaceful trail with different loops to choose from. Multiple areas to take my dog down to the river to swim.

Wonderful walk with the fam. Very clean and well maintained. Limited people you pass by but all very kind with leashed pups. Highly recommend if you’re just looking for a nice walk. So quiet, you can hear all the birds. It’s wonderful here!!

a great day and a great hike. a little muddy and spots but it's springtime and we can't expect much else. a lovely sunny day to be out and about.

love it. A little short, but great ppl there and well-kept. Summers you will occasionally see a legionnaire harassing dog owners because someone else didn't use a leash but great most of the time

Overgrown trail. It was ok. would go back.

The trail is divided into two loops- 1.9 and 2.4. The 1.9 loop is beautiful and takes you through a more wooded area. The 2.4 isn’t well tended at this time of the year and seems to run more on the outside of the woods. I would imagine it would be nicer in the fall, especially once it’s been tended to.

I agree this is a must for walkers and hikers . I thought a little short for backpacking but would have been more leisurely in the autumn . We went in the summer and got eaten alive . We dress in full fatigues so ticks aren't a concern for us but shorts maybe questionable attire here . We will revisit this gem in the fall , cheers . K

Great easy short 7km ride. Couple of short hills and great views along the way.
