Such a beautiful trail! Easy to follow the white blazes and we parked in the lot from entering this location in google maps "Rouge National Urban Park, Twyn Rivers Area" based on comments from other reviewers and this was perfect it led us to a parking lot with signage and an entrance to the trail. We loved walking alongside the river!

This was a great trail, one part does get a bit over grown. However, it was myself, my husband and 3 year old. My son even walked a well 2km since it was fairly easy.

Very close to the city. Porta potties at the parking areas. Beautiful fall colours.

Decent trail, a bit tough to follow in certain spots. Should have done all the way to end of Cedar Trail. Park at Twyn Roads, not cedar trail head.

Great spot & quite close to the city. Parked near the zoo (Zoo Road) because there wasn’t a spot near the trail head.

*Don't go to parking coordinate there is no parking there. You'll need to park near the Vista Trail head off of Zoo Road 43°49'05.8"N 79°10'21.7"W there is parallel side of road parking during the off season. But not available during the summer months (read signs carefully). From there choose your hike as a number of trails connect from here. Park maps: http://www.rvcc.ca/Rouge_Park_Hiking_Trails.html Also it can be pretty noisy in sections due to traffic. Hope that helps!

Eh, wheres the real hiking trail? My gps took me to toronto zoo so i had to go back to the bridge at old finch and park.

Parking was difficult to find if you just drove to the coordinate provided. The trail itself was quite pleasant, flat with some views of small lakes and streams. Probably even prettier with the fall colours a few weeks later!

Great trail but doesn’t make sense that there is no parking at the north end, especially with all that land, not thought out well whatsoever to be inviting. That being said a great hike whether you want to do the whole thing or just half with young kids.

Nice trail, easy to navigate and level easy terrain. A couple of small hills throughout but completely manageable. This trail can be connected to many other trails south of Twyn Rivers Drive (all part of the same park) south of Twyn Rivers is much prettier scenery and takes you through more forested areas. Trail got fairly busy by about 9:30am on a Sunday. Also there is NO parking to enter the Cedar Trail at the north end, off of Morningside, the only place to park is on the south end off of Twyn Rivers Drive (there is a parking lot) Also NOTE: there were lots of black legged ticks in early December. We had to pick them off ourselves and the dogs.

My dog and I loved this trail. The whole rouge valley actually is just a great place to be outside! Definitely will do again!

Very nice trail. The only problem was the lack of parking. We had to park on the side of the road.

I really enjoy this trail and have been hiking it for years. One of my favourites in the Rouge.

Trail running. First time at this park. Went for a 9 mile run. Overall it was a good trail. It did get a little confusing a couple of times with all of the smaller trails that branch off without any markings. I wanted to find something with soft surface where I could get a decent number of miles, so it worked perfect for that.

It was a good park to have a fairly easy walk on, with only a few steep hills. The only negatives I had were the lack of consistent trail markers and the relatively boring scenery after we left the creek. We ended up getting lost because the trail markers petered out and there were lots of side trails, and the middle section was just rough gravel. Nice and long, with places to loop around if you want a shorter walk. Dogs are on leash only. There is only street parking.
