Running myself and with my group as usual in the deeper wood. A little bit more MTB biker now in some harder trail but still very nice and quiet. Quite a lot of mosquito now, be sure put on deep wood repeller and reapply if you stay long.

btw, I see a deer closely while running. too bad, I scare her away :p

Was there Monday, Wednesday, Thursday this week to trail running. Perfect for hiking, Trail running and MTB now as they are all dry. You will see beautiful beds of Trillium flowers (Lots of them and I think it is Trillium and sorry if I am wrong). It is nearby the gravel session of the Not a lot of bugs yet but it really depends on weather so I put on it anyway.

Trilliums are out. No bugs yet. Absolutely stunning. There are many trails and no markers so drop a pin on your phone where you parked your car for safety sake. Simply wonderful after a long winter. Best to park in Bridgewater Road and walk in rather than parking off Stouffville entrance as it can be hard to back out onto Stouffville road.

Running again with condition left over ice, pallet snow and wet snow from freezing rain last weekend. Many area are quite slippery and with packed ice or packet ice with paddle of water underneath. Not good to hike or run if you don't have a proper hiking or trail running shoe.

Cannot say it is very technical steep up and downhill, or with rock and rough trail, but it's S-shaped maze trail with up & downhill will not make you too bore. Constantly up and down can train up the short burst up & down. Some of the lower area are still cover with ice and other area are muddy but are still perfect for trail running. BTW, the scenery are nice with wildlife (I saw woodpecker pecking) only lack of river and stream.

It was really slippery and muddy.. dog poop everywhere along the trails!! The hike was cut short as the sun was setting.. I arrived late around 4pm.. the beautiful snow is gone, the melty ice was yellowy lol! I only walked 1/3 into the trail only. Within 1/3 it would be an easy path, barely any incline and no adventures - in terms of caves and climbing. Great path for long walks and even jogging! I may consider returning in the Spring or Summer to walk the entire trail! Let’s hope no poopy paths this time!

Nice trail, but unfortunately could not enjoy the scenery because it's a mosquito feeding frenzy in there. Lather up with the repellent!
