My first time on this trail and its now one of my favorites in the region. I went early morning, 7:30 ,and very few people on the trail. Perfect mix of level and elevated trail, bull frogs and birds around the pond made it a truly beautiful walk.

Different walking trails to explore. Large body of water with a lookout area. Not much wildlife action when I went but it’s been great in the past.

Would recommend this trail for young kids to older adults. Nice easier trail to walk, run or bike. Fun story book along the trail for the littles to read!

Easy to access trails from the parking lot, with different loops varying in shorter distances. Great if you have younger kids with some nice spots to lookout, or not a lot of time. Trails were in great shape for a rainy week.

Trails were so good. A couple parts still had ice on them. Got some beautiful pictures and had fun GeoCaughting. Lots of treasures found.

Currently super icy, but well marked and beautiful! You can spend hours hiking the different trails, most of which hike through gorgeous forested areas and around frozen ponds with some nice look outs.

Amazing trail! Fun for walking the dog, phenomenal look out points for kids down but the water! Trail isn’t cleaned in the winter so recommend playing it by ear! Never have I had a bad hike there though! Would highly recommend for someone looking to turn on some music and just get lost for a while!

Beautiful hike yesterday with our dogs. The trails are well-maintained and well-marked with the exception of a couple little trails out of the area that seem to have been created. We will definitely return here the next time we are in the area

Nice trails. Well manicured and would be easy to do with a family of varying abilities. we accidentally left the trail system and joined with a walking path outside of the nature area without notice. More trail markers would be helpful to let me know what trail I was on. Pleasant walk, not too buggy. Differing things to see.

Best time to go is when it is windy so mosquitos don't bother you. Love these trails, best in Kitchener!

Very well maintained set of trails for the most part. All the trails are quite easy and there’s a fair bit of tree cover yet the mosquitoes aren’t that bad. Nice for evenings and wet weather when other trails are insufferable in those conditions.

This trail can get busy but it has a lot of separate loops and trails so you can really have a nice walk or jog through the different parts of the trail. It’s a beautiful spot.

Favourite spot. Gorgeous views and well maintained trails. Great for pets and kids. Great selection of hills and plains. Birds, boardwalk, views. Good for photos. Marsh area is sometimes muddy after lots of rain or in spring obviously. We go there 6-10 times a year.

We took our puppy here today and thought it was a great trail. Very well kept and the snowy day made the view extra pretty. Will be going back to this spot again soon!

Would be better if you could have your dogs off leash durning certain days and times
