I started at the University end and after the first farm field it closed to a very narrow path with tall grasses/weeds on both sides. That wasn’t for me so I turned back after a bit. Based on other reviews I might not have had to go too much farther before it opened up.

Have hiked this many times. It’s an easy flat trail up to the bridge, and after the bridge there’s usually very few people. That’s also where you’ll have a chance to spot birds on the Grand River. After the bridge the trail becomes narrower, muddier, and rootier.

Someone has fixed the starting location in All Trails. It’s correct now (from the huge parking lot behind Block Three Brewing). You can go much further than the highway 85 bridge shown on the map. Trail crosses private land through various farmers fields (please ensure gates close) and comes out at University Ave.

this is an ok trail - needs to be maintained better as the trail has very narrow/washed out areas which could result in injury (things to look out for: large farmers field rocks, all kinds of horse poop on the trail, deep mucky paths, thick woody weeds blocking the path, all kinds of unleashed dogs - on the non leash free areas, etc).

We did this trail yesterday and at first we thought this isn't the trail for us but then it opens up to beautiful green space and walking through the woods we enjoyed it very much. Was a nice trail to do with kids and it wasn't too busy.

we loved it. will do it again but read the reviews on where the trail head is, on the northern end of University.hard to find- there were other cars parked there which helped us.

The trail head is approximate one km East from the point shown on the app. Follow Bridge St East into University and look for the white blaze and trail on your left. The trail is beautiful. It heads North West and you end up downtown St. Jacobs.

I tried to follow these directions, but I couldn't find a trailhead anywhere. I only found a private property at this address????
