Excellent trail. Well marked! Did 9km in about 90 minutes with my dog.

Such a beautiful spot to hike! I love how there are many trails to choose from. Go for a quick hike or really spend your time there. You could get lost in that forest for hours (my favorite feeling). I only had the chance to do the main trail (with quick stops at hermitage ruins and the Griffith house) and seeing how lovely it was, I would absolutely want to return to do all trails, multiple times, and maybe even try biking. Gorgeous in the fall, well marked trails. Recommend throughly!

I'd go back for sure. It is pretty busy but that worked in my favour when my license fell out of my pocket and a biker found it and I got it back! Everyone I encountered was incredibly nice. I will say it can get confusing at some of the path intersections with the way they are marked (or unmarked) and the park's maps aren't really great at helping you out. This app was incredibly helpful and I was thankful to have it. Parking is cheaper depending on what lot you start at. I was at the Artaban lot which was $5 but you start and end with a long hill. The views were wonderful though and there is a lot of variety depending on what you are looking for.

There are so many trails that make up the Dundas Valley so your hike can be as long or short as you want it to be. Trail is well kept. Really enjoyed hiking here!

This place is so amazing. Peaceful, beautiful, full of wildlife and a great variety of elevation. There’s a stream too and lots of side trails so there’s lots of possible routes. I didn’t want to leave

This hike is amazing. Elevation change, waterfalls, incredible biodiversity, and not heavily used. I recommend adding to the trail either by Sherman Falls, or the McCormack Trail, to make it easier to park and have some more beautiful additions.

It was a good hike! Lots of variation in the elevation and beautiful scenery. The only thing I would suggest is putting a parking lot closer to the beginning of the trail.

Great park with great trails. However, if you are off main trails, there are almost no trail signs and markers.

This is my staple trail. I do the main loop about 60x a year!

Love the gentle terrain, nice rocky streams, tall trees and friendly horse riders. Can be a a bit busy with mountain bike riders on weekends. Nice highlight is the trail center, lots of interesting wild life facts, amazing old style steam train. Overall a nice trail.

The Main Loop is a gravel path through lovely forest and meadow environments. There are a few fairly steep climbs but overall should be very manageable for most hikers.

Great trail and very beautiful and well taken care of. As someone else mentioned, there were no waterfalls in this trail which is what we specifically came for.

Great if you have young kids!

I went because the app said it had waterfalls. I followed the map pretty diligently and found no waterfalls. It still gets a 5* from me for immaculately groomed trails and beautiful forestry. I had to park 1/2 mile away from the trail head too. There are other parking locations to use that seemed much closer to the trail. The three waterfalls are on a different section of trail than this one.
