Bear Den Loop is a 7 kilometer trail that goes through a variety of forests and features a whimsical boardwalk. Stone walls along the way were built by early pioneers who farmed this land. Please note that there are certain portions of this trail that dogs may no longer be allowed on. You may have to skip those sections, turn around, or use an alternate trail to complete the loop.

Loved this trail and went regularly (including the sugar shack side loop) - but sadly the scout camp no longer allows on leash dogs through their sections which cuts like hike to less than half the distance (and miss out on some nice parts)

Not much space to park your car although there wasn't a lot of traffic today. Rather flat and boring at the beginning then we finally got onto some ascending and descending which made it feel like a little bit of a workout. As you can see from our track we weren't sure of a couple of trail markings but managed to eventually find our way. A variety of other trails you can take.

Great winter loop for snowshoeing. Some good elevation to keep things interesting.

One of our favourite hikes! Note: The entrance is very easy to miss and parking is extremely limited (1-2 cars in the small gravel driveway max). Otherwise you’re parking on the side of a moderately travelled side road avg speed 80-100km. The trail itself is labelled appropriately as moderate with some parts that involve climbing up steeper hills , across small/ narrow man made bridges and walking on parts of the road for short distances (depending on what loop you take). There are lots of opportunities to take well labelled short cuts to stay off the roads or to instead make the walk longer through the circuitous forest routes. There are chickadees but they aren’t abundant. Some small creeks throughout. No garbage cans or public toilets. Not overly crowded at all but you will see other hikers with/without dogs usually on every hike. The full perimeter walk including “the boot” takes approx 2 hours.
