Very nice trail, a but Un kept an unfortunately some hikers have left behind some messy areas (diapers, tampons, toilet paper...garbage) Other then that it’s easy for little legs to get around and has a lot of enjoyable views including beaver dams. Don’t forget your bug spray!!

Beautiful trail and very well maintained. Nice short easy loop with option of a look out tower trail. Great for on leash dogs

A little overgrown, but very well marked. Part of the trail is "wheelchair accessible" with a wide gravel somewhat even path. The sign at the entrance says 2.9km which is more accurate than what this app says. No big hills to climb, easy hike with pretty scenery and informative and interesting signs along the way. My 6 and 8 year old completes it easily, my 4 year old wanted a piggyback ride every now and then.

Aug 28 2019 Fun little hike. Good for kids (mine are 5 & 7). Lots of scenic opportunities and wildlife sighting. Nice variety of terrain to move through as well. Trail is well marked and easy to follow. Late in the summer the blueberries are just EVERYWHERE. We feasted on them as we walked. Good time.

nice hike with some good views points. Easy for everyone to complete. The boardwalk had a small flooded part so we shimminy along the handrails. Also well marked hike. When you head out to the lookout tower it is a bit more difficult to see the markers so keep a sharp eye out

Good trail. Saw some turtles. Has a beautiful lookout. Many picnic tables to eat before the short hike.

It’s a really nice trail, although not really well maintained. If bringing dogs, ensure to bring plenty of water because there is only a little pond that does not look that great to drink. Bring lots of bug spray as there are horseflies and deer flies.

Loved it! Beautiful views, hike was not too easy but not too hard. The trail is not marked well and can be hard to see. Loved the idea of it being partly boardwalk and smooth pathway for wheelchairs, walkers, etc. So that everyone has the opportunity to learn about and enjoy nature. There are little education posts along the path to educate you about the local flora and fauna.
