Beautiful scenery! I was there on a weekday afternoon and only saw 1 person. It is a very hilly trail so was a good workout. My dog loved the little creek and was totally intrigued by the cows on the other side of the fence. Highly recommend.

Beautiful and very clean. Trail is well marked and very clear. It’s pretty much all uphill the whole time but it’s pretty gradual and manageable. May not be great for seniors or small kids. But, We’re not exactly in the best shape and it wasn’t really a struggle at all for us. We went on a nice warm day in March so it wasn’t icy and whatever ice was there was pretty slushy so it wasn’t a problem. Be mindful of ice if you’re going in the winter- this trail would be pretty hard with the ice! Great trail for running.

Took 4.5 to do this whole trail from Hockley Road to Dunlop Rd. Quite steep, lots of up and down the hill. Lots of creeks which was nice. Markings were very poor. Parking was very bad, took 45 minutes to find a spot.

Fabulous hike in a forest with diverse terrain. Few visitors in the morning.

Really great hike; very scenic; not exactly "easy", lots of up and down hills... overall a very good experience...

Absolutely NOT lightly trafficked. We encountered countless hikers and dogs on our Saturday morning hike (8am start) and some large groups of 20+ people. Very hilly, with multiple steep inclines. Beautiful scenery and a good work out if you're looking for a moderately difficult hike. Nice hike overall but would probably avoid this place on the weekend as it seems to get extremely busy.

Good hilly walking trail for families. Had a little brook half way through and an old abandoned Chevy to add some interest.

10KM combined Bruce Trail and Tom East Side Trail inside Hockley Valley Park. You can include another side trail to make the distance a little bit longer. Nice view, a few streams and bridges. Hills!

A relatively popular place for hikers. No washrooms here. But it's free entry and free parking!

February 3rd and 12C! The trail was extremely icy but my Yak Traks did an incredible job. The river was moving fast but there was zero wildlife. Not even a crow! Nice walk with my dog though.
